Fun Without Drugs?!?!?

In class yesterday Chuck shared he had a great weekend. It was the first time in his adult life he could remember having fun without drugs!

A thirtysomething guy, Chuck’s struggled with chemicals for years. He came to our 12-month residential Spiritual Recovery Program last fall and stayed all the way through our 45-day initial blackout period.

Guys agree this is the toughest part of our Program, but it’s an important time for them to just focus on themselves. For many it’s a major turning point in their lives.

Well, Chuck went out, got high and had to leave our Program. It took only one week living on the street and using again for him to get arrested…again!

Upon his release, Chuck’s family insisted he get into a program. He decided to come back here…and just passed his record clean time of 45 days!

Since he started using, Chuck can’t remember ever being clean this long!

I asked him what’s different this time and Chuck said I’m learning new things about myself and about life every day. Spiritual Recovery works – if we work it! And it works best…
