As a way to prepare for this episode, I asked our listeners about their experience with Recovery and Therapy. As always, our listeners responded. I asked our listeners if they have every been to therapy.


What percentage of our audience do you think has been in therapy for mental health?

Many of us in recovery have found it helpful to receive mental health treatments such as talk therapy in addition to participation in a 12-step recovery program. Many of us have family of origin difficulties, the stress of dealing with the damages we have caused, many of us have been the victims of violence and abuse. Members have found that specialists in the mental health field can help in the healing process that sobriety offers.


But, sometimes, stigma within the recovering community can prevent us from seeking treatment. As we discussed last week, mental health disorders can kill and we at the Recovered Podcast advocate seeking professional help in addition to full and active participation in a 12-step recovering community.
