Can Mindfulness Meditation Prevent Relapse? | The Fix: Mindfulness meditation teaches people how to accept suffering as a normal, cohesive experience, and then move on from it.
Teaching Kids About Drugs: Alternatives to DARE | The Fix: Any program predicated on the idea that people need to “just say no” causes the opposite effect. High risk groups tend to be encouraged to participate in the forbidden behavior.
Family Rooms: Hoarding, Addiction, and Love | The Fix: There’s no denying the healing power of the latest in shiny merchandise. What better way to fill that emptiness inside than with an unbeatable bargain or full price indulgence?
President Trump, Let Me Educate You About The Disease Of Addiction | The Fix: My letter to Trump......... Dear Mr. President, the more I listen to you speak about how you are going to handle the opioid crisis plaguing our country, the more I realize that your knowledge regarding the disease of addiction is nonexistent. You first spoke about building a wall to keep drugs out of our country. Every debate, campaign stop and interview you raised your fist and chanted “Build The Wall”. Unfortunately, Mr. President, the drugs live in the USA.
The Link Between Intimate Partner Violence and Substance Use Disorders | The Fix: And then, when you realize you need it, that you don’t just want it, even when the consequences are becoming more dangerous, you stay for one reason: fear.

2-21-18 Twelve Stepping With Spiritual Support From Scripture
Psalm 86 v 5-O Lord , you are so good , so ready to forgive,so full of unfailing love for all who ask for help. (GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 2 - Came to believe that God, a Power greater than ourselves, could restore us to sanity and stability.
God made you for His purposes not yours ! Your life is a train wreck because you are living in Rebellion. Addiction (sin) is a By- Product of living life in rebellion from your maker. The reasons your living in rebellion or how you got here are not important. We only have the right now and we are not promised tomorrow. So what do you do now. Life hurts real bad ! Everywhere you look is sorrow, loss, and devastation.Everyone you love is distant or gone.Addiction has now taking over your life and you no longer live for yourself or your maker.Addiction has become your owner and your broken and lost . there is a way ! That verse above is more than just a verse, its a promise.God your maker is not a man which means he cant lie.That promise is a guarantee. God your Father is patiently awaiting you to ask Him for help and to forgive you for living in rebellion.Feel that tugging in your Heart that is a wanting to return to Him. I will never forget the moment ,I found God . Rock Bottom is where I was, hopeless lost and out of options. Broken ,I hit my knees and cried out ,Im done ,I cant go on ,I dont want to live this way anymore! If your real and hear me then help me! That was 16 years ago , the mess I made has been cleaned up ,I am remarried ,a father with a good job and I am living indoors where it is warm and dry. I don't cry myself to sleep anymore and I am not looking over my shoulder in fear of what is coming next . God waited patiently for me to return ,He forgave me ,saved me , transformed me and restored me.
