Workshops open doors to community

Recovery Workshops Spark Conversation and Friendships

We offer workshops 4 afternoons per week for residents to connect with each other. Here residents have the unique opportunity to bond through reading and discussing recovery literature, the Big Book and doing 12-step work together. These workshops spur thinking about accepting help and helping another, mindfulness and recovery or the 12-steps and living "on life's terms".

BIG BOOK AND 

BASIC TEXT

Recovery isn’t as simple as using your willpower. No one chooses to become addicted but it is their responsibility to become educated about their recovery  and allow others in. The texts we use guide the workshop conversation.

ORGANIC GARDENING

Gardening is the ultimate mindfulness. Each leaf of green tells it's own story and at the same time is a vital part of our very existence.

MINDFULNESS

Recovery experience shows that people who practice mindfulness and meditate are more peaceful and better able to focus on their tasks. Practicing mindfulness is a skill that people in our house practice every day.Trying to be more mindful is also learned by breaking the process into its parts of emotion, thinking and behavior. Many have thought it “wasn’t possible for them” after a couple tries. But like any skill, mindfulness takes practice. Workshops every week. 

ACA 12-Step

 As William Faulkner wrote, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” We explore through discussion and reading the 12-steps of Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
