Sierra Castedo, the director of The Center for Students in Recovery at UT Austin gives a little history on the first collegiate recovery program and talks about how important these types of programs are for students who are in recovery.

Dr. Nancy Moonstarr, Ph.D Psychologist, explains why your relationship with yourself is the one that we all need and depend upon for good mental health.
Recovery Work Starts With Finding The Self We know that an addiction is used by an individual to avoid something that is unwanted.

It's important for people to understand those who are suffering from addiction, and that this disease needs to be addressed with compassion, not judgement. 
Do you use drugs and alcohol to manage your emotions? I really dislike the word addict to describe someone. I believe that people are more than just their addiction!

Sobriety blogger Marilyn Spiller talks about being sober during the holidays and shares tips on what you can do if a craving hits. Hint: Shouting "NO!" out loud is liberating and just might work!

When Treatment Becomes Necessary The late 80’s and early 90’s was an interesting time in treatment.
