Complacency is the enemy in recovery from drug/alcohol addiction!

The old thinking that breeds over-confidence and laziness keeps us from our recovery tasks. Keep your recovery number one.

The number one mistake to avoid if getting sober and clean.

Non-Medicated Substance Abuse Treatment.

 

A simple spiritual connection and a willingness to make up for the harm done to self and others is all that is needed to get and stay sober and clean.

This is what I do. This is what I teach!

I will accept anyone for substance abuse treatment if they sincerely want to be sober and clean!!!

The money comes second. If you or a loved one is broke and want treatment, I will evaluate and let you into treatment if you are willing to do what succeddful recovering people do and allow me to be the therapist and coach you.

Addiction has a biological, psychological, social and spiritual basis.

 

When all four are treated, the addict/alcoholic becomes a part of society that he or she rejected. There is a peace that far surpasses the 'high' falsely acquired, and eventually non-existent, obtained from using mood-altering, mood destroying substances.

Love and Peace,

Recovery from Addiction - "Strike while the iron is hot!"

 

If you are considering sobriety/recovery, you have been 'contacted. 96% do not get out of denial'                        (Ohlms, D., M.D., 1986.)

When aware of a drug/alcohol problem write it down.

 

When we own the problem, it is the beginning of the solution - a Higher Calling in life.  We are then on an honest endeavor to change for the better.

Alcohol/drug addiction can be very difficult to see, even in late stages.

 

The main concern is whether it is getting in the way of your family, health or work. Take an honest look at these issues. You deserve to be free from negative choices.

If someone else is concerned about your drinking or drug use...

 

Accept their feedback and question it. Try not to dismiss it. It's ok to doubt them.

Getting sober and clean is a process.

 

Sometimes it is a matter of not using for a while so you can see the benefits and also the harm done to self and others. Then you can have hope.

Acceptance of Addiction - There's no shame in changing your mind.

 

Most of us had a long period of adaptation to our drug of choice. When defeated, some of us surrendered to win. Now we're doing well.

Non medication, affordable solutions to drug and alcohol addiction works.

Without twelve step PARTICIPATION, most alcoholics suffer from depression ranging from confusion to built up anger, fear and restlessness to extreme detachment from life. Many resort to other mood-altering chemicals under the illusion that they now are sober and stable. Consensus is that peace and success can be found through a spiritual solution.
