Allison Hudson’s blog is one of my favorites. Her honesty is refreshing and her courage to speak up about her journey in Recovery is inspiring. In particular, I really liked this post about dating in Recovery.
Many of our AToN Center residents struggle with dating and intimate relationships pre- and post-treatment. We generally recommend that individuals in early recovery refrain from starting new intimate relationships, which can be a source of contention. Allison points out some very good reasons to prioritize Recovery over dating.
