Speaking to Friends and Family About Recovery

Speaking to Friends and Family about Recovery

There are so many different aspects to consider when it comes to addiction recovery. One of the things that many people don’t think about before starting recovery is how they’ll speak with their friends and family about their decision. If you’re currently in this position and aren’t quite sure what to do, then this blog is for you. Let’s get started and go over some of the important things to keep in mind when it comes to speaking with those you’re close to about your recovery.

Conversations With Friends and Family

There are certain things that you should keep in mind when it comes to speaking with friends and family about your recovery. One of the first things that’s important to think about is your comfort level. Some people will feel comfortable sharing more information than others, so it’s essential to think about what information you feel comfortable sharing.

Another thing that’s important to consider is what boundaries you want to have in your relationships. If you have a friend who’s not supportive of your recovery, then you’ll need to do some thinking about what boundary you want to set (if any). Some people don’t feel comfortable being friends with people who don’t support their recovery, but this isn’t a deal breaker for other people.

When it comes to having conversations with your loved ones about your recovery, it’s important to make sure that you’re remaining honest and transparent. You should be prepared to answer some questions but remember that your comfort level is what matters the most.
