What Motivates a Recovery Advocate?

Recovery advocates are promising in helping end the stigma, as well as helping those still sick and suffering in need of hearing a message they could find nowhere else. There are a lot of things that make a recovery advocate special. There are also a lot of things that help recovery advocates relate to those still in the woes of addiction or substance use disorder. And as we know, you don’t have to be in recovery to be a part of the recovery movement; although sharing experience strength and hope is a huge help!In my time with Substance For You, I've...

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...

My Abstract Thought Sucks! But It’ll Come Back...

Many of you out there in early recovery are probably struggling with things like math classes, writing creatively, or the music you used to love to play! Heck, trust me, when I first got clean I couldn't hold a beat on my drum set, and failed math classes when it was my best subject in high school!

And eventually you will be even more badass at it than you ever were; just know recovery is possible! Math was always my...

21 Ways to Tell Drugs to SCREW OFF!

In my opinion the “Just Say No” idea is outdated and not working when you get approached about doing or being asked to do drugs. If it was a promising idea then we wouldn’t have a youth heroin crisis on our hands; in fact, something I addressed Drug Policy and the White House on a few weeks ago. When confronted with the issue of doing something that health education classes only tell you is, “euphoric” and a “means to escape,” like drugs, then saying no turns to curiosity and most times indulgent for youngsters. Me being a little bit older,...
