People who are isolated and stressed, as many of us are during this pandemic, frequently turn to substances to alleviate their negative feelings. People in recovery may face stresses and heightened urges to use substances and will be at a higher risk for relapse. Peers, family members, and addiction treatment providers should be alert to this possibility.
