When a Sponsor Relationship Needs More
She’s back. Vince and Jeanna have another conversation with Dr. Camila Williams. In this episode, they talk to Dr. Williams about the benefits of working a recovery program that involves therapy and a 12-step community, and when to get a professional involved in recovery.
Listen in as Camila identifies green light (all is good), yellow light (proceed with caution), and red light behaviors (call a therapist) that a sponsor can look for when working with a sponsee.
Highlights in this Episode Include:
- The importance of belonging to a community in recovery.
- The Seeking Safety Program to help people reduce trauma and substance abuse symptoms without total abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
- What to look for in determining whether a sponsor should suggest to his or her sponsee that they seek professional help.
- The role of the therapist in the sponsor, sponsee, and therapist relationship.
- Identifying depression and grief in recovery.
