Taking the First Step in Recovery

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” But looking at 12 steps and saying “let’s go, let’s get them done quick” is not how recovery works, it’s a lifelong journey. Taking the first step means surrendering to addiction treatment. But what logically do you do? What does taking the first step mean?

Mike & Glenn discuss: Surrender. Calling your doctor. Doing a substance abuse assessment with a professional. Telling somebody that you love what you are going through. Accepting recovery. Joining a support group. There are many ways to take the first step, but “You’ll never learn to swim if you don’t jump in the pool”
