    RECOVERY ROMANCES: The Attraction Distraction

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  The argument against co-ed facilities is buffered by the frequency in which clients in residential treatment facilities are engaging in romantic relationships. The rate of success of these relationships are so low it doesn't even register statisically. These Recovery Romances also initiate in 12 Step support groups, and other recovery formats.  What does register are the recovery processes derailed.  Why do these Recovery Romances get started? Why are the particpants resistant to outside influence against the relationships? Is true individual recovery possible when you are involved in a Recovery Romance? Lets dig down into this dilema.........

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: The Great Sabotage

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  You're progressing through treatment. You've turned the corner. You see the end of the treatment road on the horizon. The end of the safety of the cocoon is near. Your tool kit is stocked. It's now about repetition, practice, and exercising your new or readjusted attitutude and behaviors. Then BOOM (or BAM), you blow it up. You "engineer" a relapse. You SABOTAGE yourself, and the process. Why do we do this to ourselves?!?

    Why are guiding principles important to recovery?

    in Self Help

    Sometimes when we get swept away in our addiction/depression/anxiety/pain/fear, we can get off track really quickly.  A set of guiding principles can be a good road map to stay on track.  But whose principles do you use?  How do you know which set to use and can you change your mind about which set to follow? Can you pick and choose.


    We will be talking about principles and how to discover what is and will work for you.  We will discover how to build a system of recovery that will work when your mind and heart are taking a different direction.


    Join me every Monday at 8PM PST on Building Blocks of Recovery radio.  Also make sure to sign up for the free online conference "How I Bounced Back", All day September 19 on http://www.buildingblocksofrecovery.com
