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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

Love and Inner Peace,

In addiction recovery, we have to stand for our beliefs.

I believe in drug free recovery with God and those who show us how it's done. Money is not the goal.

Recovery from addiction is great, even in the rough times.

 

We retrain our minds to be positive through prayer, listening to our peers, reading and meditating because now we can. This is a gift available if we work for it.

Recovery from addiction is first abstinence, then clarity of mind and peace.

 

Recovery should have quality - solutions to life's fears and greed.

When in recovery from addiction, we give  back; then we get back that which we lost.

 

Recovery from addiction entails asking God for release from the bondage of addiction and then making up for harms done to others.
