Relapse Spectacular Part 2! Triggers, Relapse & The Abstinence Violation Effect

RMA-Episode 46 Show Notes:


This week on RMA we square the circle on relapse and take a look at some of the statistics and studies dealing with the issue. We also discuss how to avoid a relapse and how to identify the triggers that put you in the danger zone. 


Plus, Mike gets back from Mexico and Nat  goes to the zoo, so join us as we voyage into an all-inclusive, hungry, angry, lonely and tired episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.

We also have a Facebook Group! Request to join the group. It’s a private space for continuing the discussion of what Nat and Mike talk about on the podcast. Hope to see you there.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.
