Better Together

Peace, Hope & Recovery

The Power of We

'Tis the season of glad tidings and good cheer, but for many of us in recovery the holidays ring in extra stress—and even relapse triggers. Still, there's plenty of room for peace and hope during the holidays. And that's my sincere wish for you.

We've filled our December issue of Better Together with ideas to strengthen and inspire your recovery throughout the holidays, including my blog about three ways I've decided to keep it simple this year.

May you experience this special time of the year in whatever ways are most meaningful to you and your recovery.
