In this episode of the podcast, Chris introduces us to the recovery curve. This is a topic of one of the groups that Chris leads at Hope. The first six to nine months in early recovery tend to be the most challenging, so anything that can help us understand this process better can be useful. Knowledge of the recovery curve can help us to avoid potential pitfalls and diagnose where we are on our journey.
