It was a great video. I was impressed with how honest and open she was

I work in MMT and this can be very challenging as patients come into treatment when they are at such a low point in their lives, that they have a very hard time getting past the “not using” vs. recovery. Once they get on a stable dose and start getting their lives back, they tend to forget the other things that they should be doing in order to continuously improve their quality of life. A lot of patients have had bad experiences with 12 step programs so the idea of a recovery coach and peer recovery would be great for them and I will definitely be encouraging them to utilize those resources.
