On today’s Recovery Now, Jen Lever from Recovery Now, joined Lori to discuss Healthy Community in Recovery. They started off talking about how isolation can promote relapse in recovery. They discussed how community gives support and safety, so it’s importance to seek out sober-minded friends. They told us the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, and challenged us to ask ourselves if we are healthy for people.
Next, they shared how a healthy community can help us engage in new healthy ways. They continued by warning not to be something we’re not, but to stick with what God has graced us to do so we don’t hinder someone’s recovery. Jen told us we can’t fix everybody, but we can plug them in with those who are called. Finally, they told us how a healthy community has a balance of encouragement and accountability, as well as, good clean fun. Listen in and hear more about it!
