Today’s blog is a collaboration piece written by Bethany Hatton. Bethany, a retired librarian with 32 years of experience, created PreventAddiction.info after her oldest grandson became addicted to opioids. Though she discovered there is no guaranteed way to prevent addiction; she was able to find many helpful resources that can keep the public up to date on the latest prevention, addiction, and recovery information.
There’s no magic solution to make your recovery journey quicker or easier. Recovery is a long, difficult journey, and there are many things that help you along the path. And, unfortunately, many things that impede your progress. As a result, you must actively seek out progress boosters, and outdoor activities certainly qualify as a positive outlet.
