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!

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,

It is normal to Question the seriousness of a drug or alcohol problem.

 

Consequences are relative to the person who is misbehaving. Ask a love one if he or she sees a problem with your drinking or drug use. Do not be afraid to know. It could save a life.

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.

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.

Love and Inner Peace,

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.

Helping others is admirable. Helping an addict should be done with caution.

The best defense against the disease of addiction is a united family, especially the parents.

Families with addictive members suffer incredibly.

Too many times I have sat with mothers and fathers, spouses and children who have lost their loved one to addiction. And the person is sitting there. It is no longer the loved one they knew.

Pay special attention to stress when recovering from addiction.

Find the 'sweet spot' which is attained after you surrender completely to your idea of a Creator who has your back and will never let you down. Then there is no stress. Fear has melted into faith.
