The Way Out Recovery Hour – December 18, 2017
On this episode of The way Out Recovery SCV Hour, Host Bob Sharits welcomes grieving specialist Sharon Brubaker to discuss how we can deal with and overcome grief in a supportive and healthy way.
We are in the final stretch of the holiday season, Bob said. I enjoy this time, with all the lights and the music however people often reflect on the ones we lost during the year and in previous years.
Being in the world of drugs and alcohol recovery and treatment, we are often losing people to overdoses and to the life of drugs and not being there and people are sad and get stuck in a funk not being with their loved ones, Bob said.

I think what happens in society is that this time of year we are supposed to be happen and jolly, however December first hits on the calendar and we are heart broken, Sharon said. Grief is natural and we all experience grief of many kinds, it is not just the loss of a loved one.
"If it is natural, why does it not feel that way, why do we not know how to go through it," Sharon said. "It is simple, because we were never taught how to grieve."
Grief is individual and unique for every person. A person’s relationship to each aspect of their life is also unique. As such, the feelings and thoughts each person will have about the relationship that has been altered by death, divorce, or other reasons requires customized attention using proven skills and understanding.
