Inability to meet the need:

One of the most confronting stressors of a role in recovery is the inability to meet the need encountered and the lack of control over outcomes for residents.

With recovery, there are so many problems that cannot be solved. All we can do is be there, support them and be their cheerleaders and coach. We cannot be there twenty-four seven. And many just want their life returned, but no matter what you do you cannot do this for them. Dr Tomoko Osawa - Hyogo Institute for Traumatic Stress, Kobe.

People have high expectations of you to fix their problems and link them to funding but you don't have direct access or control over the solutions. Emily Gonzalez -FEGS, Long Island
