NATURE IS MY PARTNER IN HEALING

July 30, 2017

 

The sunflowers are committed to reaching for the sun everyday. That's how they got that big. The soil was fertile soil, too. It's like my recovery. My roots have to be surrounded by my 12-step friends. I need to sit in that garden that I could call AA and listen to the people that share all around me. They are like the wind on my face. They soothe me and refresh me. Because I can't be refreshed alone. Nor can these sunflowers grow alone. They need me to bring them water and refill their garden with fresh mulch every year; they need a community to pull their weeds. None of us is in this alone; it's only our disease whispering to us. That whisper gets fainter and fainter the longer I stay in my garden of recovery.

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.
