It is vital that people in recovery recognize the common relapse triggers and learn how to avoid them. The acronym HALT can help people remember the most common relapse triggers in early recovery – these are, hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness
Just a reminder! Tonight at 7:15! Yoga for 12 Step Recovery!!! Hope to see you all on the mat🙏🏼

The Twelfth Step Ministry is located at the Center for Spiritual Development. We provide meeting space and support for people recovering from addiction.

Dear Friends,
We are living in interesting times. We are reminded daily to live in gratitude but mostly focusing on what WE CAN DO.

Call a friend, Skype, Video just check in with people you may have not talked to in some time.
Practice Self Care - Take a walk, work in the yard, clean out a closet or just take a long bath.....

But I’m also remembering what not to do.

Not overdose on news, not focus on all the things I can no longer do like eat out or go to a movie, and not speculate endlessly on how the coronavirus outbreak will develop or how long it will last.

In The Rooms

Wonderful resource for those who cannot be there in person.

In The Rooms is the premier online social network for the Recovery community worldwide. Our mantra is H.I.T.C.H and our mission is to Help, Inform, Touch, Connect, and Heal those in Recovery, seeking Recovery and support for their family and friends.

Dear Mom, (and Dad), You Did Not Fail.

As a person in long term recovery working in the field of mental health and addiction, it’s been my an honor to work closely with the addicted population. It's immensely rewarding to watch people who have given up on life, make life-saving changes. As the addicted person becomes well, it’s important to look at their family history. Returning to a safe, supportive environment is crucial when recovering from addiction.

Because addiction is a family disease, everyone will need help. Family programs are available in some treatment centers. Facts suggest when addicted individuals families are educated, and in recovery too, their chance of success is higher.

Every week a new group of family members will enter treatment to attend supportive, informative, educational programs. All though their faces change, their stories are similar. Some attending are spouses and siblings. A few are Dads. But for the most part, the common thread in families struggling with addiction is Mom.

Mom, you made the calls to rehab.

Mom, you cleaned up the mess.

Mom, you paid the bills.

Mom, you kept secrets.

Mom, you protected them.

Mom, you put your life on hold.

Mom, you tried your best. Now it’s time to stop beating yourself up.

Mom, you did not fail.

One day in the group I was facilitating, a Mom got honest and gave voice to her pain. Her son’s addiction had taken a considerable toll on her. She was exhausted. Mom had tried everything she could think of to put her son back together. But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t get him clean and sober. She stated when her son was small she had been able to fix his scraped knee with a Band-Aid and kiss. She had helped him with his homework. She could feed a hungry stomach or soothe a feverish brow. She had changed his diapers and wiped his runny nose. But fixing his addiction was beyond her capability. Mom threw up her hands in group and cried. “I have failed my son.” There was a moment of silence after her declaration, and then heads began to nod. Mothers agreed. Logically or not, these women felt as though they had failed as Moms.

It doesn’t matter who Mom is, she will struggle with guilt. Mom wonders; was her child’s addiction her fault?

Mom you ask;

What did I do wrong?

Didn’t I do enough?

Did I do too much?

The answer is simple.

Mom, you did not fail.

As a Mom, your head and your heart are continually playing tug-of-war. What you’re seeing and hearing don’t add up. You want to believe your child, but your instincts tell you differently. To make matters worse, when you confront your child, they only get mad at you and shut you out of their life. To stay close, you give in to their demands and say yes, when no is the right answer.

After time you realize that helping them, isn’t helping. You acknowledge feelings of guilt and shame. You realize in hindsight the guilt you carried, not being able to fix your child, led you to do too much for them. Which in turn only enabled their addiction.

Mom, you did the best you could considering you didn’t have all the facts. When someone struggles with addiction, they don’t tell you the truth. They say what you want to hear. You can’t make informed choices when you don’t know what’s going on.

Mom, you did not fail.
It’s natural to want to trust your child. Your nature is to nurture and take care of them. If only love could fix this. But it cannot. A hug will not make this go away. Addiction is an ugly disease. It is manipulative, dishonest and delusional. To help your child, you will require a support system and firm boundaries.

At first, setting healthy boundaries will feel wrong, cruel and unloving. Saying no and setting boundaries allows your child to experience the consequences of their actions. It’s these consequences that will motivate them to choose recovery. However, by doing the right thing for them, don’t expect a thank you. Most addicted persons will not appreciate you saying no. They may even become verbally abusive and revert to emotional extortion.

You may hear things like; you’re a terrible Mom. An uncaring Mom. A selfish Mom. As you hold your boundaries their behavior may continue to escalate. Addicted persons act up because it works. Stay the course. Talk with your support circle. You will feel guilty. You will second guess yourself. Your head will tell you, you’re the worst Mom ever. But you’re not. You’re a loving Mom doing a hard thing – the right thing.

Mom, you did not fail.
Addiction is a progressive illness. It gets worse, not better, over time. Just like cancer, its best treated when caught in the beginning stages. Early intervention is key. Please know you didn’t cause their illness. You can’t cure it, and you can’t control it. But you can influence the outcome. Someone has to make the hard choices. Don’t wait for the impaired thinker to do it. Reach outside your family circle for assistance. Involve professionals. It’s essential you learn how to love them, without enabling their illness. Lead by example. If they refuse help, start with you. Educate yourself. Join support groups. Find healthy ways to vent your feelings. Practice self-care and don't isolate! There's no shame in asking for help; so lead the way!
