Jessica M. shares her story of #Recovery in today's #StoriesOfRecovery.
Sobriety Date: 1/25/18 (the day I entered Retreat and saved my life. ❤️)
To maintain sobriety: To maintain my sobriety I attend as many AA meetings as possible. A minimum of 4 a week. I talk to my sponsor daily and pray to my higher power. Story: My recovery started with 28 days in Retreat and here I am 6 months later feeling the best I have ever felt. 6 months ago I was hopeless and depressed, but with determination, meetings and a sponsor I am a sober Mother and Wife living a wonderful life.
Advice: It’s never too late to get sober. Completely surrender and ask for help. Get to an AA meeting and find a sponsor!!

Today's #PortraitsOfRecovery comes from Pete K. as he shares his inner thoughts on his past addiction and current sobriety.
"The first picture of myself is how I viewed myself while I was using which was Beetle Juice inspired. Like Beetle Juice, I was always trying to talk someone into something for my personal gain. Also his features, the pale skin and all around dirt & decay pretty much describe the way I felt and to be honest probably looked.
Today I am able to be the son, friend , brother and all around person I always sold myself short of being. I also finally feel whole again, reunited with one of my all-time favorite passions: SKATEBOARDING. I am just grateful to be alive today and am trying to live my best life."
Thank you to Nicole Amelia Lombardi & Tanya Ruhl for helping create Pete's incredible looks!

#StoriesOfRecovery
Cory G. shares his story: "Maintaining Sobriety – Attend AA meetings 2-3 times per week, read the daily reflections, pray every day, meditate periodically, do AA service work, stay connected with others in recovery, active in home group, live one day at a time and practice the 12 steps. Story of Recovery – My name is Cory and I am an alcoholic. God gave me the gift of desperation after a number of failed (half-hearted) attempts at sobriety. After 20 years of active alcoholism and cross addiction to benzos, 2 DUIs, and a life of chaos (which appeared “normal” from the outside), I hit bottom, faced with losing my marriage, family, and job, and became willing to go to any length to achieve sobriety. I checked into Retreat on 10/7/15 in a hopeless state of mind, body and emotion, followed the directions given to me by the staff (and God), and began my journey of recovery. Being sober and living life on life’s terms Advice for Newcomers – Willingness is the key. Become willing, be honest, get a good sponsor, follow directions, attend meetings every day (do 90 in 90 at the beginning), get connected, help with service work, work the 12 steps with your sponsor, develop an attitude of gratitude, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

#StoriesOfRecovery
Colleen M. - I was so broken, and never thought I would ever even make it back to treatment. I had an option to being to heal with the help of my therapist and a 12 step program and here I am today.To maintain my sobriety, I am involved in a 12 step program and I found the best sponsor in the world who really understands me. I also am very active in different aspects of the fellowship. Advice: I would let people know to find a 12 step program that best suits them and find a sponsor who has what they want.

#FunFactFriday Retreat offers additional alternative opportunities with therapeutic value for patients that prove beneficial in their road to recovery. One service we offer is photography, working with patients to capture the beauty of our campus. This photo was taken by a patient given the prompt to "take a picture of something you see every day yet might overlook." Giving patients multiple outlets allows them to find their own road to treatment.
