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,

Recovery from addiction is for Winners!!!

 

We get to get sober and clean. I hope I never forget this. I read about it daily and talk about it daily. More importantly, I listen to others talk about it daily. Most importantly, I pray to remember it each morning,

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.

Keep recovery from addiction simple.

 

 Try not to use your old thinking to worry and predict the worse. All things work out if you work for them. Use a coach who has been there..

Families with addiction - Helpful Guide.

 

The family that has been torn apart by addiction has much to repair. First, there is forgiveness for the harm done and a commitment to let go of anger, fears, despair, hopelessness, powerlessness and grief. This takes a long time. There is no magic cure. Let go via therapy efforts and direction or there is danger of displacing the anger on others. Let the therapist have a say in the family's healing or nothing will happen.

Best Wishes,                                                           Dr. Peter A. Butkins

Addiction treatment should be affordable.

 

At My Freedom Quest, I give addicts and alcoholics a chance to get siber and clean no matter how much money they have. It is 'doable' if the person wants help.

Families of addiction have been severely damaged.

 

Years of repair have to be completed. All members need to heal from the fears, angers, shame and sadness that the disease of addiction breeds. There is no magic cure.

Families of addicts are the best source of change.

 

I have worked with hundreds of addicts/alcoholics who have broken denial because of the families pain and resultant courage to become healthy.

Recovery from addiction requires breaking denial and work.

 

Hitting a hard bottom and being aware of the pain as a direct result from using drugs and/or alcohol creates motivation to work through the beginning changes. We can't think ourselves sober and clean.

Do not let and active addict run your family.

 

The alcoholic/addict can be convincing you that all will be well again. Listen to the actions, not the talk.

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.

Best Wishes,
