Episode 43 – The Recovery Curve

Some nuggets from this episode

  • The recovery curve is a general way of describing a person’s changing moods, emotions, and physical experience during early recovery.

  • The first six to nine months of recovery is the most critical when it comes to long-term freedom from addiction, so anything that can allow us to understand this process better is going to be useful.

  • There is a point on the recovery curve when we are most at risk of relapse and being aware of this will reduce this risk.

  • There is nothing inevitable about the recovery curve, and we can take steps to avoid the dangers of the highs and lows.
