Addiction is a tricky business. It can creep into lives slowly and you are usually caught in the web of addiction before you even realize it! At first your addiction was the “feel-good” solution to your situation, or perhaps just an experimenting. Sooner or later your addiction becomes the problem.
Sobriety, abstinence, overcoming addictions is an equally tricky business. According to Sandra, it is a process best done in community with support. What makes it tricky is that most addicts have become alienated from others and find themselves alone, angry and unwilling to admit there is a problem.
There is no one-size-fits-all recovery solution. Recovery is a process. According to Sandra, it needs to involve the whole person. Detox or abstinence from the substance or behavior is only the first step. Once you become sober or abstinent, the real recovery process begins. This thought is heard in 12-step meetings as the definition of SOBER (Son Of a B****, Everything’s Real). The heart of recovery involves change and balance. You need to change—but only everything! Change and balance happens in community.
If you are struggling to free yourself from the web of addiction or looking to share your recovery with others as a recovery coach, then Sandra can assist you to achieve your goals.
