Guilt and Forgiveness During Recovery
This is a topic I've wanted to write about for a while now. When we used to lead group sessions this was a topic that would come up quite frequently. Reentry into a normal kind of life, takes a lot of work and there is a ton of guilt and forgiveness to work through. Guilt and forgiveness is actually something that both sides of the recovery discussion have to deal with. When I say both sides, I mean the person who is dealing with the addiction itself and the people that the addiction has harmed.
Addiction destroys lives to the point where family relationships, careers and everything in life is damaged.
