Making amends to those who have been hurt by one's addiction is not only an expectation of most recovery programs, but is necessary for anyone who values relationships. There are unique challenges associated with making amends--Does the person want to hear from me? Will they forgive me? Will I be able to say the words? Will it make things worse? Will they take me seriously? Share your stories of making amends. What have you encountered, and how has it worked out?
