Recovery changes our lives in ways we never imagined. It turns everything upside down. There is so much change that many things in our lives stay the same. Recovery impacts every aspect of our lives, including our mental health, emotions, physical wellness and spirituality. It also impacts the world around us, including family and friends, where we live and work, what we do for fun and more.
We all have four pillars in our lives that help us to rebuild after struggling with addiction. These pillars, like the pillars under a building's roof, are what give us the foundation or strength and help us move forward. They will continue to support us throughout our lives.
