Recovery capital is a relatively new concept in the field of recovery.
Let’s define this concept.
Our recovery capital is determined by the number of external and internal assets that we have which support recovery. External assets are things like having a home group that we attend regularly, or a good connection with our sponsor, or the support of our family, etc. Legal problems can also be an external asset because they provide a certain level of motivation to change. A few examples of internal assets are our level of commitment to recovery, the degree to which we have accepted our devastating weakness, our attitude towards our problems and our attitude towards ourselves and others.
Did you know there are hidden rewards to making amends? Without a willingness to experience our painful feelings, we can never grow and mature into the person we'd like to be. We can never reach our potential. We can never become our true-self.
we focus is where our energy goes. So we want to ensure that when we are
conducting a counseling session we are focusing our attention on the most
relevant and potentially helpful issue or issues for our clients. This is
critical if we are going to create an experience that offers the most
therapeutic benefit to our client.
