It’s no secret to people who work in recovery that their clients’ relationship to money is fraught. Individuals in recovery may have alienated loved ones by abusing their financial generosity. They may have destroyed their own credit. And having cash during recovery can be a trigger. Yet, not being able to buy everyday essentials or rebuild credit can endanger long-term recovery. This session is a must for anyone operating a treatment program. We’ll share the results of research on addiction and finances, focusing on early recovery to give you a realistic overview of how addiction affects finances, as well as research demonstrating that supporting healthy finances supports long-term recovery.
