In the 1930’s judges who were presented with individuals whose crimes were influenced by alcoholism or substance abuse would offer the defendants a choice: 90 days in jail or 90 days in a treatment hospital. Today professionals in many disciplines still stress the importance of the first 90 days during recovery. During the first 90 days, persons who abuse substances of any kind are faced with dramatic internal and external shifts; physiological, emotional, relational, psychological, financial, etc. The type of support offered during this time period can help clients become rooted in sober mental, emotional and behavioral patterns, thereby enabling them to move down a path of sobriety when it comes to alcohol consumption, drug use or other addictive patterns. This workshop will help professionals more fully understand what occurs during and what they can specifically do during a client’s first 90 days of recovery.
