Thank you to Ashley Wong and Bridge Magazine for this timely article. Sanford’s Founder, Rae Green, is interviewed along with other Michigan addiction treatment experts, on the state of recovery while stay-at-home orders are in effect. Sanford Addiction Treatment Centers is a residential and outpatient facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Sanford is increasing Virtual Program options for those who fear relapse or are new to recovery during this time of isolation and distancing.

 

Many meetings are moving online, and some in recovery are trying to stay in contact through phone calls and Internet meetings. Still, some state leaders in the recovery community acknowledge that the isolation that comes from being cooped up at home sparks fears of relapse.

 

Others expressed concern about people who are on the edge, between the earlier stages of recovery and getting settled. According to Green, people in this stage will have to be “very vigilant” about using any virtual and digital support they can to stay sober.  Bridge Magazine 3/27/2020
