1. The phrase "my disease is on the parking lot

doing push ups while I'm in this room." So sad for their clients and their beloveds.

2. I worked in several treatment centers for a few years

back in late '80's.
They hired mostly recovering staff, including docs, and I have to say, more than a few of the staff, while "clean", were no way "sober" in their behavior and thinking. Several relapsed, quite predictably.

3. Learning the difference between clean, sober and working on recovery is complex.

4. Many do relaps. As You said..."..working on recovery is complex."

very complex, and very difficult I might add. Very sad story in original post....
