Dr. John P. Rosa, national opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker writes about the attributes of recovery and resilience and suggests that they are both processes that can continuously be developed and strengthened throughout life.
ROCKVILLE, MD. September 29, 2020: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Recovery Is Resilience,” in which Dr. Rosa talks about the inner qualities that cultivate resilience.
Dr. Rosa states, “Recovery is a process. So is resilience.” He goes on to add, “In fact, you can’t have one without the other! Both, recovery and resilience are processes that ultimately blossom into life’s most useful skills. No matter where you are in your recovery, resilience can continuously be fine-tuned.”
“The quality of resilience,” says Dr. Rosa, “has been defined as “the ability to mentally or emotionally cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status quickly. Resilience exists when the person uses “mental processes and behaviors in promoting personal assets and protecting self from the potential negative effects of stressors.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_resilience
As Dr. Rosa points out, “Without question, everyone, whether in recovery or not, can benefit from taking stock of their inner reserves during these difficult times and turn their attention to developing greater resilience. For those of you in recovery,” he encourages, “do not despair. There are very specific actions you can take – echoing the steps toward recovery – that will carry you forward and strengthen your resilience. All behaviors can be exercised, and like muscles, these behaviors, when consciously exercised will be strengthened in your daily life.”
