This SAMHSA definition expresses so beautifully what it takes to live a fulfilling, satisfying, and joyfully challenging life. We don’t need money or power or any of the addictive substances or behaviors that we use to fill our emptiness, escape our pain, or to feel important. We need only to be present, turn our energy outwards to engage with others and make the world a better place, and to fully express our creativity.
Recovery is for all of us. Make a commitment to this “process of change” and experience the joy of Connection!
