I love working at Green Hill because I really enjoy mixing it up with young men in recovery. There is likely nothing these guys have done, nothing they’ve felt that I haven’t experienced one way or another. My sense is that my ability to relate with them helps with easing the recovery process a little bit. This provides me with some of the sincerest career satisfaction I’ve ever felt.
There’s no one size fits all approach when talking to your family about recovery. Depending on the family dynamics and relationship, it can be an intimidating experience. For some, it may feel like avoiding it all together is the better option. Even so, there are ways to approach this sensitive topic with grace and self-compassion.
