Three things individuals need in recovery

Mentor

With the increase, and awareness, of the opioid crisis there is also the ever-increasing number of people coming into recovery and treatment. We must make an increasingly substantial effort to assist them as they find their way to wholeness and peace. Each person stand in need of three things for recovery to, not only be possible but, to be successful.

A Friend

Having someone in our life that helps us see things objectively, holds us accountable, and assists us in being motivated is wonderful. Yet, when we have someone that accepts us and appreciates us unconditionally goes further in how we approach and engage recovery.

Responsibility

Developing responsibility for our own life, our own thoughts, and our own feelings helps us move toward wholeness as we begin to realize we are the only person responsible for our own life. This includes our own recovery.

Higher Power

Having a higher power helps us refocus ourselves back onto what is more important. This is where we develop faith, receive wisdom and insight, and able to find empowerment to face obstacles and challenges in recovery.

Those who are in a healthy place, and working a healthy recovery program, has a duty to provide these things to those coming into their own path and journey from substance use.

I will focus on making new connections, taking responsibility, and continually seeking guidance from my higher power.
