Sobriety blogger Nancy Carr talks about what she experiences in her first year in recovery. While everyone won’t have the same experiences or use the same tools to get through their first year, she shares some really helpful tips. #addiction   #recovery  
What to Expect in Your First Year of Recovery When I was getting sober there was no manual on “What to expect when you are getting sober” as much as I’d like to think there was. Instead my new life came with a Fellowship, a blue book and a new way to live my life…

Marilyn Spiller of Waking Up The Ghost had an interesting thought...
"As much as we all talk about developing new interests in recovery, we don’t talk much about going back to our old interests and experiencing them with a clear head and good hand-eye coordination."
What do you think?
I was in a roadside bar a few weeks ago. My favorite kind of watering hole: rustic, rural with a long, cluttered bar top and a surly barmaid.

Sobriety author Nancy Carr explains why, in recovery, you've got nothing to lose by checking out that AA meeting. Seriously, give it a shot.
Why not check out that AA meeting? The longer I’m sober the more I realize that not a lot of people get sober via AA nor do they stay “in” the program after getting sober, and so I sometimes take on the AA spokesmodel persona and comment to someone, “Why not check out an AA…

Healing from pain and trauma takes time but it's possible to come out on the other side. Author Sarah Hemli knows this firsthand and shares her story.
The Other Side is For Real I was very aware of people. I had to keep them at a distance. At the same time, a part of me so desperately wanted to be seen and known— the scared, lonely, honest part of me. But I played it safe. Stay hidden and keep people at a…

Bethany Cash, an alumna of Stepping Stone Center - Rehab Program, shares her story about struggling with addiction and how taking responsibility and being honest with herself is what helped her on her journey to recovery.
A Half-Truth is a Whole Lie My journey into recovery began in 2006, almost 10 years ago now. I was 28 years old, married, with a 3-year-old daughter. Back then, I wanted to get sober for all the wrong reasons. Mostly, so that my family would leave me alone about it. At that point in…

Chris Blauvelt, the Admissions and Outreach Coordinator at The Augustine Recovery Center says getting sober and staying sober means building a circle of support. What keeps you sober?
Being an active member of a recovery community, I watch a lot of people come in & out. Unfortunately, for as many that enter recovery, very few stay.

It's not that relapses are necessarily more common during the summer, just that your regular coping techniques may need reinforcement. If you want to ensure a sober summer, here are some great tips.

When it comes to spirituality and religion, there can certainly be an overlap, but one does not need to exist without the other.
Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to one another by a power greater than all of us.

"When addiction or mental health issues affects one member of the family, it can and often affects all parts of the family."
- Lori Fiester, LCSW-S, MAC, CIP
The Importance of Family Programming In the past 10 or so years, I’ve noticed a slew of ancillary services to residential substance abuse and mental health treatment, from equine therapy, yoga, meditation to dolphin assisted therapy. While all these therapies have added value to the identified client, not much has changed for the families. It…

Unfortunately, many of us have experienced grief in our lives and while that feeling of loss might get easier to deal with over time, that scar will never fade.
Grief and Loss is Tricky and Unpredictable The best definition of grief that I have found to date is that “grief is the normal and natural emotional reaction to loss or change of any kind.” I like this definition because generally speaking when one talks about grief, it is related to the death of someone…
