New Sobriety Season

Season changes are great for alcoholics and addicts.

They are fresh, new opportunities to once again, if necessary, start over, reinvent yourselves, or just wipe the slate clean.

On the eve of fall and at the close of yet another remarkable and adventurous summer, I hope you are contemplating all of the significant lessons you learned and anticipating the joy-filled sobriety awaiting you.

Are you preparing to celebrate another milestone of sobriety? Adding another month or year?

Perhaps you are returning to school, starting school, or preparing to graduate.

Maybe you are beginning a new career, starting your first job, or even leaving your job.

There is, no doubt, a number of you who have decided that you have had enough of using drugs and or alcohol. Drugs and alcohol have ruined your relationships, taken too many years, or even stolen your dreams.

Whatever the reason, you have realized that enough is enough.

Meanwhile, many of you are entering rehab for the first time, or maybe for the last time. There are still those of you who are leaving rehab, or entering sober living.

Whatever your next endeavor is, give it all you that you have. Focus and commit yourself wholeheartedly to the task at hand and then leave the results up to your Higher Power. Whatever the outcome, you will not be disappointed.

After all, this is the ultimate recipe for success.

And, if you haven’t already, get creative, absorb the energy of the new season to inspire you, and let it motivate you all the way to the end result that you wish to achieve.

If you or someone that you love is struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, please call or text us now. We can help you.
