We are fortunate to live during a time when there are many options for finding and sustaining lasting recovery from addiction. We are all individuals and while there are many aspects of our personal journeys that may be similar to those of others, we are each called to discover for ourselves what works and what doesn’t work for us. Recovery is a personal process and there is no right or wrong way to recover. We may find that certain modalities and methods help us at different times in the healing process. This is a beautiful thing. Journey’s Many Paths column shines a light on different approaches that people use to maintain lasting recovery without endorsing specific approaches or recovery programs. We ultimately leave it up to you, the reader, to decide what works best for you, while presenting you with multiple pathways to recovery.
