The Currency of Treatment

In a World of chaos and turmoil, surrounded by the current state of the heroin epidemic, it’s safe to say that proper—or even luxury—recovery and treatment centers are the most undervalued tool, today. There are ways a treatment, or recovery center, should act in order to responsibly care for the sick and suffering addict. And the truth to why many treatment centers are undervalued is because there are many other treatment centers that do not meet up to standards of quality.I’ve known that many treatment centers around my home area in Michigan do not incorporate any form of a luxurious setting...

I Was My Own Worst Stigma!

My substance use started off in my early youth, a young age, and continued until around the end of my youth and early adulthood.

From All American to All Addict—Family Shouldn't Treat Addicts

Sober Addicts Make the Best Students!

Sober Addicts Make the Best Students...    I bet you’re saying, “You’re kidding me right?” and I’d say, “No I’m not!” It’s true, a sober addict makes the best student! Why you’re asking? Well… there are many reasons, but I’m going to highlight a few for you. You could say we know everything about everything already. Or that could just be confidence; either way it works. We’ve taken a lot of tests… usually. And oh, don’t forget that chemistry class should be an easy one for us, and not to boot math and counting should be a breeze! So here’s...
