Many people who are pursuing recovery for Addiction continue to take other prescribed or over-the-counter medications that they are unaware may be counterproductive to their health and pursuit of recovery/abstinence with other substances. In this video a brief list is shared of medications to look at in your own recovery and encouragement to discuss this with a trained Addiction medicine professional.
Please note that this video is not a substitute for consultation with a doctor and is not intended to be medical guidance, rather a point for reflection and further follow-up.
