Relapse & Recover? Recovery from addiction means stopping drug use AND learn new ways of thinking, feeling, and dealing with problems. Addiction makes it hard to function in daily life and can impact your family, at work, and community. It’s hard to change so many things at once and not fall back into old habits. Recovery from addiction is a lifelong effort and possible. www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/recovery
