WOW: Jeanne's Creation of a Recovery Community!

After the party is over – from recovery to discovery of the real you! I am super excited to share with you the creation of my new baby: The Recovery Concierge. I say baby, because the recovery industry is birthing new ways as to how we best serve recovery and sobriety support, and personally I think we are in the height of an industrialized revolution.  I have witnessed gaps in the system, and how a one-size fits all approach to recovery fails too many people. Change is everywhere; reducing shame, stigma, breaking anonymity, neuroscience, diet, yoga, new and emerging support...

From Jenna to Dad, The daughter you never really knew…

Dear Dad, I stood outside your door today after being gone for 13 years, hoping enough time had passed that we could move forward and finally put the past behind us.  As I stood there contemplating for a minute whether I should really knock on the door or just turn around and leave, the nervousness ...

Control Freak

I never considered myself to be much of control freak until my life spiraled out of control. By nature, I am not domineering, and when it comes to being in charge: I could take it or leave it. While I could not care less if I am in charge, I do like being in control, ...
