When Tommy and Nate went through drug treatment, they walked out “knowing” they had been cured of their addiction. The same thing happened the next time they went to treatment. And the next. And the next. And…the next.
Many people seeking recovery leave a treatment program knowing the drugs and/or alcohol are out of their system. The feel better (physically, mentally and emotionally) and think they are cured. But, all too common, they fall right back into the same old habits as before treatment.
Katie, Clinical Director at Fort Wayne Recovery, joins Nate & Tommy to talk about the importance of seeking care (for the addict as well as their family) after completing a treatment program to continue learning how to apply everything you learn in treatment into the real world to maintain your sobriety and to live a full, happy and productive life in recovery.
