Recovery from addiction takes a while but it works and gets really good.

The first year is up and down and, in my opinion, it's the best year. 'It was the worst of times and it was the best of times.' We learn to cope, hope and enjoy life.

AND it was worth all the time and effort.

Have a safe and happy journey,

60,000 kids died last year from overdoses. Addiction is highly treatable without drugs.

When the family becomes involved, i.e. gets accurate information on addiction and recovery and learns how to use their leverage, Tough Love works!!!

Take charge of your families parents; do not let an addict/alcoholic take charge of the family or their own treatment program. Their thinking has been warped.

Thanks for reading this and Best Wishes,

Addiction education is vital; addiction analysis is deadly.

Intellectualizing and rationalizing are old defense mechanisms that keep up in the dark, away from the pain of the consequences of our abusive actions when high or in active addiction. Good thinking must be learned from those who have 'been there.' Our old thinking must be replaced with health thoughts of the joy that comes when sober and clean.

31 years sober and clean this month and 'lovin' it'. Life is good today!

Got a beautiful card from my 98 year old mother and loving sister. There's nothing like family unity. It's all possible through vigiilent recovery. I'm so grateful.

#addiction Addiction is highly treatable. Politics interfere with effective treatment.

Many times, greed and fears overtake the providers. There are billions of dollars in addiction treatment. There is peace and purposefulness in doing it right.

Addiction Treatment is Simple.

Do not complicate addiction treatment with drugs and isolation from consequences. Family is the key to good recovery. Get them involved. They are the leverage.

It takes a skilled and spiritual therapist to intervene in the addiction disease. It is evil!!!
