It has been said that addicted people who enter into recovery are actually fortunate for they are forced to take a look at themselves and their spirituality. By self-examination, recovering addicts are able to realize that their lack of spirituality is partly the cause of their distress. It seems that many people are incapable of tolerating themselves because they have a negative feelings about themselves. They start to have a distorted self image which leads them to go to great lengths to escape or deny their identity as they perceive it. All of these things make discovering spirituality impossible. A very important component of spirituality is self improvement. But, it is impossible to embark on self improvement without knowing where your starting point is. To get a starting point, you need to do a self-inventory and find out what your assets are and in what areas that you need work.

Mental Health

​Recovery doesn’t happen in isolation. The individual in recovery from mental illness and substance abuse needs professionals in his or her corner to help navigate uncertain times, deal with stress, overcome marginalized employment or living conditions, build skills and/or continue improvement in areas of cognitive ability, among others. After completion of a treatment program forsubstance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorder, counseling should be continued on a regular basis. The length of timewill vary depending on the individual’s needs and progress. There’s no one-size-fits-all plan for such individuals, just as there is no defined blueprint for any person in recovery from addiction. 
One thing is certain: With the prevalence of serious mental illness and substance abuse or dependence in America today, this is something that we’d better get right. What may be an issue or problem that your neighbor or co-worker has to deal with today in their family may tomorrow beone that you and your loved ones will need to address.

Physical Health

We believe that the physical aspect of recovery from addiction is often neglected or minimized. It is a great accomplishment to stay clean and sober for any period of time. However, a healthy recovery is a balance of the mind, body and spirit. Before embarking upon the physical component of any recovery program, it is absolutely imperative that the recovering individual obtain an accurate and comprehensive assessment of his current health status. 
Some key questions that need to be addressed are:

  • Is the individual capable and willing to begin a fitness program?

  • What are the physical limitations of the individual?

  • What is the ultimate goal for the individual's recovery? ( To walk, to play the piano, to return to work)

  • Which health professionals can help with the physical component of the recovery process?

The Four Key Components in Determining a Fitness Program are:

  • Current Health Status

  • Realistic Long Term Goals (e.g. Quit smoking, maintain ideal body weight, normalize blood sugar etc.)

  • Incremental Short term Goals (Focusing on making small improvements day in and day out will allow you to reach your goals more quickly, easily and with less stress than any other method.)

  • Utilize a Variety of Health Professionals (e.g. Medical Care, Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Naturopathy etc.)

Family Life

For the best chance of lasting recovery, a recovering person needs to make comprehensive changes. That means taking care of medical or psychiatric conditions that can lead to relapse, creating a safe and secure living and working environment, and, importantly, rebuilding sober support networks, particularly with family members. Because family members can be an invaluable source of long-term recovery support, it is important that these people get involved in the treatment process. ​An educated and united family can play a strong, supportive role in the recovery process. Family members should make every effort to get involved in the treatment process, for the benefit of every person in the family.

Life Skills

Learning to balance these multiple responsibilities is excellent preparation for transitioning back into daily life without drugs and alcohol. Our life skills classes also help prepare residents for success reintegration by helping them strengthen important life skills such as budgeting and money management, job-seeking skills, communication, time management, and nutrition and healthy meal preparation.

Personal Professional Services

An important thing to know about finding a job while first out of an addiction treatment program is that it should be simple. A good job for developing life skills would be one in a mall or retail; something that is very simple and essentially stress free. The importance is that while a recovering addict is working on their spiritual and mental selves there should be very little stress distraction from a job. The physical side of recovering will follow when the spiritual and mental selves are in a good place.
