Overcoming the Stigma of Addiction

Stigma is a widespread issue for many people, but those dealing with substance abuse seem to deal with it extensively.

The 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 21.2 millionRead More

Dealing With Pressure During a Plateau

The peaks and valleys that you go through in recovery are often discussed, but the plateaus you experience in between aren’t talked about nearly as much.

Connect With Yourself Through the Written Word

Resolving Conflicts Within Relationships

No relationship is free from conflict. Whether it be a relationship with a partner or friend, there will be times when disagreements arise. As hard as you try to be thoughtful and genuinely kind, there will be times when feelings get hurt because of words said (or unsaid) or actions taken (or not taken). TheRead More

Grow From What You Go Through

We know that there is no one “right” way to treat someone dealing with substance abuse. Treatment should be tailored to the client’s individual needs. Some women find that they benefit more from individual talk therapy than group therapy. Others find relief and a sense of camaraderie in a group setting. Each woman that comesRead More

Coping With Curveballs

Life likes to throw us curveballs when it thinks we’re getting a little bit too comfortable. We get used to things happening one way and we can get a bit complacent. We expect to crush a fastball but, at the last second, the ball goes the other way. We weren’t ready for that curveball! InRead More
