Do you find the recovery population presenting a problem in the waiting room?
By and large, our Recovery Program members are no different from the rest of our patient panel. Occasionally we have problems with inappropriate conversations occurring in the waiting room. By addressing these patterns in group, a useful discussion about what represents “Recovery” can happen. We do note a problem with recovery program members smoking in the parking lot or near the building. We remind members about this regularly. As expected, this pattern ebbs and flows.
