    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: OCGRadio One Year Annversary.............

    in Self Help

    It's been a year since we went "live" with this idea to do a live podcast, talking about substance abuse treatment, recovery, Daytop, OCG, and all things in between as it relates to recovery.....or not!  Our 1st show (10/24/14) hastily came together to honor Daytop's founder, the Monsignor William B. O'Brien, who passed away on 10/19/2014. Although we didn't officially start our recovery themed podcast until November 18th, 2014, in reflection, it was fitting that our first show was honoring a man who made recovery possible for so many. We will do a little year in review.

We'll discuss what constitutes an Under Graduate. Though essentially they're all different, they all have had to accomplish similar goals to achieve UnderGraduate status.

    Russell Friedman: Grief Recovery from Pet Loss

    in Self Help

    According to the AAVA, Americans owned more than 157 million pets in 2012. Americans LOVE their pets! A big problem with pets, however, is that their lives are shorter than human lives. We love them, and lose them far too soon for us. How do we deal with losing them? What do we need to do in order to grieve their loss fully, and then go on with our own lives? What do we do about getting another pet? Russell Friedman and his colleagues, author of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss, is an expert in grief and applies his understanding to the very real grief we human feel when our pets die. Russell and co-author John James have created the Grief Recovery Method, shared with you when you listen to Full Power Living.

    So many people preface the report of the deep grief they feel after the death of their dog, cat or bird, with “I know I’m being stupid/silly, but….” It turns out that grief is grief, and grief felt over the death of our beloved pet is no more silly or stupid than grief we feel over the lost of a person we love. Who better to discuss this with than someone who is an expert on all aspects of grief? Listen on Thursday as Russell Friedman talks with us on questions most of us have when we suffer loss. Click here to visit Russell Friedman's website!

    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.........
