Recovery is the next step after an individual suffering with opioid use disorder has achieved sobriety. While recovery may seem like the last step in an addiction cycle, it is a life-long, on-going step for those with substance-use disorders. There are transitional periods that may trigger someone to begin using again. People in recovery and their families should understand and use coping behaviors for long-term addiction recovery.
