Hi Everyone,

I have to really echo what Angela has stated about meeting the client and family where they are at. As long as we are providing information regarding risks and benefits of being on and off medications, and supporting them in their attempts at recovery, we are doing all we can as care providers from a harm reduction lens. Transparency is key, and having the family see that you recognize their concerns and are providing them will all necessary information, will go a long way to rebuilding that trust. Creating a relapse prevention plan is also really important so that they can recognize any symptoms of relapse quickly.
