Recovery and the Potty Mouth

ABOUT THIS SHOW: In recovery we learn to become better people in all areas of our lives. This means not only our behavior changes, but our hearts change as well. It has been said that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. How then can we say we follow the spiritual path of our Higher Power, when in fact what comes out of our mouth is contrary to that path and therefore displays what is truly in our hearts?
CLOSING SONG: If I Get Drunk Tonight by Jeff Bates.


Life After Treatment

Life After Treatment: Many of us need some very specialized care to enable us to hit the reset button and begin our journey back to wellness, we needed serious treatment that may have included medical detox, medical supervision and numerous other recovery services that may not have been available at our local 12 Step support meeting, church or religious organization. But what does our recovery look like after treatment? Treatment is but the beginning of our journey. Here are some tips to help us maintain a healthy and authentic recovery.
