‘You Got This’: Maintaining Recovery during the Holidays

12/19/2019

For many individuals in recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs), the holidays are filled with high-risk situations. This episode provides science-informed advice to assist individuals, as well as spouses/partners, family members, and friends, to prepare for holiday situations that may be recovery-aversive and includes:

  • a brief review of the definitions of recovery, recovery benchmarks, and high-risk situations to establish a common language regarding recovery support;
  • the Five G’s,  which are tips that can be used to manage recovery-averse situations; and
  • a discussion of tools/activities that can be applied in real-life situations.

Most importantly, the overall theme of this episode is to provide encouragement that, by doing some preparation, maintaining recovery during the holidays can be navigated and managed.
