Anyone can get and stay sober and clean.

 

It is a matter of surrender to a process that is successful. Find the successful recovering people and do what they do. Stop fighting and trying to control it alone.

Love and Peace,

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!!!"

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,

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!

There are no good reasons for staying drunk and high, only excuses.

 

We take away the time and money excuse by making treatment just 9 hours weekly. If you have no money, I will give you four weeks to get a job and begin paying. We at My Freedom Quest won't enable you but we will help you to get back on your feet.

Love and Peace,

I will accept anyone for substance abuse treatment if they sincerely want to be sober and clean!!!

The money comes second. If you or a loved one is broke and want treatment, I will evaluate and let you into treatment if you are willing to do what succeddful recovering people do and allow me to be the therapist and coach you.

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,

Recovery from Addiction - "Strike while the iron is hot!"

 

If you are considering sobriety/recovery, you have been 'contacted. 96% do not get out of denial'                        (Ohlms, D., M.D., 1986.)

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.

When aware of a drug/alcohol problem write it down.

 

When we own the problem, it is the beginning of the solution - a Higher Calling in life.  We are then on an honest endeavor to change for the better.

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.
