Episode 401: "Relapse, Recovery, and Resolutions"
Play • 1 hr 7 min

The calendar ending and beginning anew represents a clean slate of sorts. While there is value in the hopefulness of setting resolutions, we want to talk about the complicated reality of how resolutions impact relapse and recovery when it comes to alcohol abuse, addiction, and even self-injury. In the premiere episode of season four, host Chad Moses is joined by LMHC Michelle Moore and mental health advocate Donaven Smith to talk about how these mental health experiences are impacted by the all-or-nothing thinking that’s inspired by the start of a new year.
