Isolation Kills

Isolation Kills

In this podcast, we discuss how isolation can be deadly for those with or vulnerable to addictive disorders.We learn that:Isolation is a key characteristic of addiction, as addicts and alcoholics suffer from shame and from the fear of being found out.The pandemic exacerbated the addiction problem due to the need for social distancing and rising unemployment among vulnerable populations.We are taught in recovery that ending our isolation is critical to our healing, and that we are only as sick as the secrets that we as addicts keep, which caused our isolation to begin with.We are also taught that a sense of belonging will come from attending 12-step meetings, sharing our secrets with a sponsor, and being of service to our fellow men and women in recovery, to our families and to society at large.
