The negative stigma surrounding addiction casts a haze over the entire ordeal of recovery- and it cannot be so easily dismissed. A key to successful recovery, and relapse prevention, is for patients to immerse themselves in work. Through dedication they discover there is life after addiction, and begin achieving their ambitions, thereby benefiting the communities around them. We have everything to gain by allowing recovering addicts to work without restriction. It’s when we bar their access to the essential necessities to attain a quality life that we doom them and ourselves to continue the cyclical trophe of rehabilitation, relapse, abuse, arrests, and overdose.”
