We must be united in the war against addiction! My mission is to unite organizations,support groups, and everyone else who needs a helping hand. I am here to educate equip and develop a Recovery resource Network. My hope is that everyone gets the help they need and no one is left behind or alone in their fight for freedom from addiction. Join me and lets fight the good fight! Our Philosophy: Instigate, Agitate, Educate, and Liberate!
How did YOU do it? -- a question that many members of the Honor Guard leading PRO-ACT Recovery Walks! are asked each year. The Honor Guard is made up of individuals who have achieved at least 10 years of Recovery from addiction. This year, 207 men and women of all ages proclaimed that recovery is a reality and together they represented 3,700 years of hard-fought-for remission! This certainly was a visible statement at our 13th annual Walk that individuals can and do move beyond hanging on to recovery by their fingertips into productive, fulfilling and healthy lives.
So how did they do it? We have acknowledged for many years now that there are "Many Pathways to Recovery," meaning that folks have taken many different avenues to access recovery. Traditional 12-Step mutual support programs, clinical treatment and faith-based programs are but a few. The real questions are:
How do you sustain recovery over the long term?
How do you protect what you have fought so hard to achieve?
Over the next few weeks, The Council will be providinginformation, tools and resources that anyone can use to strengthen and protect recovery, regardless of the paths taken. We will explore the wisdom of those who have lived the experience as well as research-based tools in a variety of formats.
The Council's Central Bucks Recovery Resource Center will be hosting a series of seminars on the role nutrition can play in strengthening or threatening Recovery. Next month, we take a look at SUGAR. To learn more, visit The Council's website here or call Rick at 215-345-6644.
