I’ve been sober five years today and I’ve been writing and erasing this post for 2 hours now. I can’t seem to be able to communicate this without sounding pathetic, so maybe I should just say it in the most concise way possible.
Recovery has made nearly everything in my life better, except for one thing. I am still profoundly lonely. And I think I may need to move if that is ever going to be different.
Drug rehabilitation typically begins with drug detoxification programs and continues even after the recovery phase, with countless former drug addicts going through the entire process and effectively ending their addiction.
