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.

"BE INSIRED BY THE COMMITMENT!!!"

Love and Peace,

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!

There are no good reasons for staying drunk and high, only excuses.

 

We take away the time and money excuse by making treatment just 9 hours weekly. If you have no money, I will give you four weeks to get a job and begin paying. We at My Freedom Quest won't enable you but we will help you to get back on your feet.

Love and Peace,

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.

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.

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.

We can all get and stay sober and clean by copying successful recovering people.

 

We can't all do what Stephan Curry does but we don't have to. We CAN do what other successful recovering people have done.

The window of opportunity opens infrequently for drug addicts and alcoholics.

We must surrender when we can because there may not be another chance. Watch the news for the casualties which occur daily.

Sobriety is the center of life for an addict and/or alcoholic.

 

All else revolves around my Program. Sober and clean, all is possible. When anesthetized from reality, I have a problem I can't solve.

Character building is the essence of recovery!

 

There are five feelings: glad, mad, sad, fear and guilt. All other feelings are subsumed under these. When you label the feeling, you can work with it. You can begin to let go.

The Medicating of America - My new book.

 

We are becoming more and more clouded by dependence upon unnecessary drugs to include alcohol and Cannabis. This way of life leads to a desperate need for power, control and self sufficiency, reliance only on self. Thank God for those who fight for abstinence and clean living. Our way of life is worth its weight in gold!
