Addiction Treatment During COVID 19

May 14, 2020

Being in recovery from an addiction is challenging even in normal times. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented new hurdles for those fighting addiction. Wherever you are in your recovery journey, understand that it’s ok to feel challenged. The good news is there is help available.

  • Eliminate anxiety-provoking situations
  • Focus on the reasons you want to be in recovery
