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,

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

 

The biggest mistake I've seen people make when trying to get sober and clean is trying to get their life in order before entering treatment. The correct order is to get sober and clean and then you can get your life in order.

Love and Peace,

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,

Am I an alcoholic or an addict?

 

The biggest indicator is if you continue when you or others are seeing and suffering from problems.

Permanent recovery is attainable.

 

Don't give up. Study your Program to find the weaknesses. Are you doing the basic things that successful recovering people do?

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,

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.

Treatment for addiction is much easier than using drugs and alcohol.

 

At the end, using drugs and alcohol is demeaning, joyless and makes the true person unrecognizable.

Addiction owns the addict. Life becomes fruitless and dreams disappear in deference to the substance. Get out and stay out when you see it.

Once sober and clean, do more recovery actions to stay sober and clean, not less. If something works this good, do more of it.

New Years is a time to stay sober and clean.

                

Use the 24 hour method. You can do anything for one day. If you don't take the first drink or whatever, you will not get high.

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

 

The change from active addiction back to life is astounding. Recovery takes work on our damaged lives but usually all is reversible. There is hope no matter how far down you have gone. Others who have been down farther will show you how to come back because someone showed them. Drug free recovery works; the problem is highly treatable.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Peter A. Butkins

Don't give up on your loved one. Recovery takes time. Set boundaries & don't give up.

 

You can take care of yourself and your family if you get a good understanding of the disease and learn how to fend for yourself during the storm. Get off the merry-go-round of addiction by seeing a good addictions therapist who knows the problem and the solution for addiction as well as treatment for co-dependency. You can't afford not to do this and you have the time. Be good to yourself and get support and advice from a caring therapist who will show you how to steer the ship while you heal. Al-anon will help you find others who have 'been there' and no longer are.
