Tapping the Source in Recovery
Recovery from addiction (alcohol and/or drugs) is a great thing. However you manage to stop using the substance you have been addicted to, stopping is the beginning of a whole new existence. Staying stopped requires a plan for recovery. You may have this plan through Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, Rational Recovery, Smart Recovery or an aftercare plan from your treatment center.
After a period of recovery, many people find themselves feeling stuck, bored, uninspired, unmotivated, and undeserving. You may find yourself frightened of the prospect of change while at the same time saying to yourself, “Something’s got to change!” You may have even felt like using your old substance or something else because the feelings I am describing have come up and you just don’t want to feel them anymore.
“Tapping the Source in Recovery” is about living your life to the fullest and realizing your potential now that you are free from the addictive substances. Each group session is 90 minutes. Group topics are designed to investigate what is blocking you from moving forward in your life in the way you truly want to. Processing feelings while discovering solutions together will be central. Safety, curiosity, genuine caring and respect create the container to allow for this to take place.
