For individuals dealing with addiction, the road to sobriety can be a bumpy one. Sometimes there isn’t a clear cut path to freedom. Sometimes it’s necessary to return to the beginning and start all over again. And sometimes the road you are on requires you to take an unexpected detour, derailing all of your carefully laid plans.
