"Attention is a mental control system that lets you adjust how hard you think about something.

Because brain damage weakens attention, a good recovery depends on deliberately thinking a bit harder about many things. There is a special need to pay more attention to tasks as they get harder. Mental effort is also a self-therapy tool that can reduce or neutralize cognitive deficits. So “powering up” into maximum alertness and attention is the first step toward getting your deficits under control. When you power up, you can keep your mind focused on one topic at length, think deeply about it, and come up with your best plans and ideas. Making maximum effort sometimes offsets deficits completely, allowing survivors to function at full effectiveness." - Larry Schutz, PhD

This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.

More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."

We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.  :)

Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
