Relapse is a serious problem for all recovering people, but it is especially severe for African Americans seeking recovery from addiction. Roland Williams, who is heavily involved in promoting recovery in the African-American community, has joined forces with Terence T. Gorski to initiate an in-depth look at relapse among recovering African Americans and what can be done to prevent it.
All recovering people have relapse warning signs. For many African Americans, however, these warning signs are woven into a broad fabric of cultural issues that create additional obstacles to staying alcohol and drug free.
