Thinking About Work
Does recovery make employment possible? Does employment makes recovery possible?
Success leads to more success. When someone feels better and has more hope and support, s/he is more likely to want to work. As employees in recovery find a sense of purpose at their job, they begin to have more confidence and hope. They start to believe in a future and perhaps a career. Recovery is in progress when the person feels less depressed and experiences higher self-esteem. (Mueser)
