Biggest Party Night of the Year? Send Your Turkey To Rehab!

RMA-Episode 14 Show Notes:

Greetings fellow travelers. It’s time for the long slow slog through the holidays to begin, but don’t worry, Mike and Nat are here to help you through it. This week we talk about why Thanksgiving is such a party holiday, and how you can navigate through the minefields of family dysfunction and drunken festivities with your sanity and sobriety intact. What is it about that Wednesday night before Thanksgiving anyway?

Plus, the weekly wrap-up, Recovery in the News and The Week in Weird on an overstuffed, gravy-soaked, pie-eating episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
