We must be willing to learn.

 

Our whole lives we are taught to be self-sufficient, take control, get the job done... We must return to earlier times when we were students - of recovery. After all, we are always students.

The best life is a sober and clean life. If I can do it, you can do it!

 

A life of being altered is not being involved in why we were put here. This is not our world. We are all joined and here to be purposeful. Self absorption get old. Recovery is living a good life.

Best Wishes,

Relapse back to addiction is not necessary. Build your defenses.

 

Be inspired by adhering to a daily Program of recovery. Ask for release from drugs and alcohol in the morning; thank Him at night. Spend time with recovering people. Read recovery literature.Have a home group. Be a good person. Have quiet time. This is your daily PROGRAM.

                                                         

Best Wishes,

Drinking/drug consequences are often disguised. Did you mess up when high?

 

Problems with drinking are minimized. Be healthy enough to see the problems and get help from those who are sober and clean.

 

Be humble enough to get help. You deserve your joy and happiness like anyone else. Bring your dreams to recovery meetings!

Best Wishes,

Addiction Recovery Redirection - Recovery is truly a Gift!!!

 

The change from active addiction back to life is astounding. A recent study suggests that, given enough time in recovery, the reversal/healing of the brain and body can be significant.

Recovery is really easier than you think and is a joy. Drug free recovery works; the problem is highly treatable. 

Get the first year in with a good addiction therapist who has 'been there' and you will uncover most of the traps that take you back. Involve family to help you stay honest, accountable and loved.

Best Wishes,

Hope springs eternal - Alexander Pope, 1732.

 

'If I can get sober and clean, anyone can.' I have heard hundreds of addicts/alcoholics say this. No matter the drug, cocaine, opiates, alcohol, cannabis, crystal meth, crack, benzos... there is a way out that I have found.

There is HOPE for the suffering addict/alcoholic. Hope leads to faith and faith leads to recovery.

 

We merely must do what successful recovering people have done. There are millions of them available to help you. Just ask! You will find hope and a home.

Have a safe and happy journey,

 

Dr. Peter A. Butkins
