Bored? Get creative!

February 5, 2020

If you are new to recovery and feel a little bored, remember that you are still in charge of your entertainment, you just need to find a healthier way to entertain yourself.  What a novel idea!

Create something! Flat or multi-dimensional, creating reaches a part of you that you didn't know about- it distracts you from thoughts and worries. It is like a meditation.

Stand up, look around you and think right now, what can I create? I can draw on my note pad, I can bake a cake, I can cook an exotic dish or a plain meal. I can plant flowers, clean my house all the way to the rafters, I can tie all my clothes that I don't want into a giant knot and drop them off at Goodwill. I know you will think of something to create. Make recovery real and tangible!

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.
