The holidays are often full of fun for many, but might not be for those feeling holiday stress and for those in recovery from a substance use disorder.
Crisis Coach Scott H. Silverman joined KUSI’s Logan Byrnes on Good Evening San Diego on Thanksgiving evening to discuss how folks can manage holiday stress.
One example Scott mentioned is, “If you’re trying not to drink but other people are asking questions, just simply tell them that you’re driving.”
“It helps to have a non-alcoholic drink with you, such as an iced Coke with a lime wedge,” Silverman added.
