The Recovery Process
It would be nice to think of the recovery process as an adventure movie with a dashing hero. At the beginning of the blockbuster film, our hero is in trouble. But then, with the support of some loyal allies, they overcome that trouble and set things right. It might be hard, but our hero has grit—and a winning smile—and is more than up for any challenge.
And then, after the hardships have been overcome and the bad guys vanquished, the hero is revealed as whole and healed and happy as the credits roll. Cue the inspiring music.
