It's time. It's time to look at ourselves in the mirror and really have a deep conversation with ourselves. Is what we're doing with our addictions keeping us alive? It's 'in our face' loudly that many people out there using conventional methods geared towards addiction or recovery are completely LOST. The program(s) they are using or have used are just not working - not to their satisfaction anyway.
This is not to blame the systems in place - they have in fact helped millions of people... but what about the ones that it hasn't helped? Are you one of those people? We have realized that there is a loud demand for a new system to be in place, a system with radical new ways of doing things for the lives of those that heavily favor unconventional methods. Programs that can foster the health, happiness, longevity and self-reliance of responsible behavior in individuals, which will help them recover from addiction(s) and become the person they truly desire to be. Is this YOU?
If you feel that the methods or programs you have been participating in are not working or simply 'keeping you in the system', Recovery 360 Radio is worth your time to listen in. We feel that each individual that is going through addiction or recovery cannot be treated with a boilerplate system; they must be given tools based upon individuality.
The tools we wish to introduce to the listener are ones of BALANCE, for it is BALANCE that will give you the platform to overcome the temptations you have been faced with. When the body is in harmony, it can then function at an optimal level. This harmony only comes from the three aspects of our lives - Brain, Body and Soul. Each one is a component - focusing on them is essential for addiction or recovery.
This is the movement you have been looking for.
