The Dangers of Cash

Recovering addicts, who are fresh out of treatment, have a lot to be cautious about when it comes to maintaining their sobriety. Depending on the case, triggers can be found around almost every corner that can send one on a downward spiral. Believe it or not, having cash in one's pocket can be enough to spark addictive thinking and play a part in a relapse.

In an attempt to combat the dangers of cash, a new credit card has been developed specifically for recovering addicts. The card, known as the Next Step Card, is a pre-paid credit card. It prevents the user from making purchases at liquor stores, bars, escort services, casinos, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops. It also stops users from making ATM cash withdrawals or receiving cash back when making purchases.

This new card may save a lot of people from making poor decisions when they are new to recovery. Recovering addicts minds are still working against them when they are newly sober, this card will act as a safety net when one is having a hard time.

What are your thoughts on cash as a trigger, should newly recovering addicts have access to liquid cash?
