    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: War Stories (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly)

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  Traditionally, the recovery community has frowned upon the telling of War Stories, and with good reason. We're not fond of clients glorifying past negative behaviors and prefer that they focus on the present, and also their future. However, in honor and memoriam, of former OCG employee, and in celebration of what would've been his 52nd birthday today, we on behalf of the late Great Joe Williams, will suspend that tradition and tell a few select War Stories, that all have a Moral of the Story, in line with our recovery values

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: Relationships, and why it's the #1 Relapse Trigger!

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  In no other area of our lives do we experience the full range of feelings than in our intra and inter-personal relationships with others. From extreme joy to extreme sadness. Inability to manage, cope, and deal with these feelings, as persons in various stages of recovery, can have a negative result, which can include a relapse episode. Is there any way to preempt this? Is there anyway to intervene?
