    Meet The Creators of "I Am Not Anonymous"

    in Lifestyle

    Did you know that there are over 23 million people in recovery in the US alone?  Organizations like "I Am Not Anonymous" are working to break the stigma of addiction, and share peoples' stories of recovery to help others who are suffering and feel they are alone.


    From the "I Am Not Anonymous" website: 


    "For years, those suffering from addiction have done so in silence as a result of the negative stigma surrounding it. The truth is, people DO recover. Our mission is to bring the SOLUTION into the conversation in hopes of helping the millions of people who remain untreated and help the world understand that addiction is not a moral failing. It is a powerful disease and the stigma associated with it is just as deadly as the disease itself."


    On this show we are so excited to welcome the Creators of "I Am Not Anonymous", Tom and Kate.  Through the power of story and photography, Tom and Kate are at the forefront of the ever-increasing movement to break down the stigma of addiction. We will talk to them about their own journeys in recovery (Tom) and loving sommeone in recovery (Kate), as well as learn more about the project and the impact it is having on the stigma of addiction.

    in Lifestyle

    The very idea of having fun on vacation without drinking can be daunting, especially for those of us who once planned our resort time around swim up bars and vineyard tours. Is it possible to have fun travelling and stay sober? How do we ensure that we have the support we need away from our usual recovery-centered routines? Whether it is a summer camping trip or a mid-winter beach getaway, vacations require a little extra planning and consideration in sobriety. On this week’s show Jean, Amanda and Catherine will all recount their recent vacations to explore what worked well, what went wrong, and what they might try differently next time.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Jill Orhn Recovery Coaching

    in Lifestyle

    Stillwater, MN – The decision to give up the lifestyle of addiction and enter recovery can be tremendously fearful and isolating, like moving away from home and never speaking to anyone again. Everyone has their own path to recovery, but with the help of a recovery coach, you can develop strategies to successfully navigate the transition to sobriety


    A recovery coach is a certified non-clinical professional that supports you as you begin a new life without substance abuse. Jill Orhn is a recovery coach and the founder of Jill Orhn Recovery Coaching, where she helps women who are considering treatment or have recently left treatment to build a new vision for their lives. Jill supports women in transition who feel lost or hopeless or believe they don’t have anyone to support them.


    “A recovery coach helps to keep you on the path to stay sober by teaching day-to-day skills and establishing new routines,” says Jill. “We take away the shame and the stigma of being alcoholic or an addict and the idea that this is who you are for life.


    Jill helps her clients to recognize what areas in their life they need to find balance and how to recognize the negative thinking and triggers that can compromise sobriety.


    “I’m there to help them take that next step, whatever that step may be, and that applies to recovery or any kind of transition,” says Jill.


    Jill understands where her clients have been but also serves as a living example that life can get better and will. She and her clients work together to develop an action plan to start your recovery and help keep you in recovery.


    “Let’s take away the stigma and help people get sober in a way that works for them,” says Jill.

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: The Therapeutic Community (TC)

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  The everyday goals of the TC are compassion, achievement, discipline, and accountability / responsibility achieved through community life based on a social learning model, and created in formal and informal settings. The beliefs that are essential to the TC are that a person can change, and that a group can foster this change.  The individual must at some point take responsibility, but going through the motions is ok as a stopgap measure until the beliefs are integrated. We'll discuss the five core concepts of the TC and the many tools used to facilitate them.
