Using Dreams in Early Recovery? Here's How to Deal With Them

If you've quit drugs, you've probably had using dreams. Especially in early recovery, using (or drinking) dreams are common. Maybe you dream you've been forced to use, or forgotten you were sober, or been stuck in a nightmare where you couldn't quit or sober up.

I talked with Workit's Director of Counseling, the ever-wise Chrissy Taylor, to find out what was up with using dreams. And yes, she's had them too!

I used to to joke that I didn’t need to relapse, I just needed to go to bed.
