Resilient Recovery

Stress and What We Can Do About It
This discussion will be an opportunity to learn how stress, though a normal and common experience, can also become a problem when it is repetitive and causes burnout or health problems. We will review the various causes of stress and the potentially unhealthy changes that may take place in our mind-body as we respond to stress. The good news is that we have an opportunity to work on becoming resilient and there are a variety of scientifically proven strategies that can help. We will practice a mindfulness exercise to give each person a chance to experience some stress relief.

Medication Use that Supports Recovery

The Big Book tells us that medical or mental health issues are better discussed with one’s physician. Not all physicians understand the risk that certain medications can pose to people in recovery. How do we talk to our doctors and advocate for ourselves for safer medications in recovery? As a physician, what are things that I can do to support my patients in recovery and decrease the risk of relapse?
