sponsor relapses

What To Do When Your Sponsor Relapses

I’ve had the same sponsor throughout the entirety of my recovery. Maybe you have too. My sponsor did more than just take me through the steps. She reminded me, through her daily walk, of the person I was called to be.  She has been an example of strength, freedom and wisdom for me. I didn’t call her daily, but she was always there when I needed her.
The sponsor / sponsee relationship is strong. So, how do you handle it if your sponsor relapses?

Why Recovering Heroin Addicts Must Try Harder

If you haven’t tried Heroin or heaven forbid become addicted to it then you are blessed above others who have. Unfortunately, heroin addiction is not only hard to quit because of the prolonged physical addiction, or the mental pain of needing it every day. Heroin addicts will all tell you it changed who they were by 360. Recovering heroin addicts, fortunately, do return to their better selves as do all recovering addicts and alcoholics. And here we are in no way lessening the difficulty of any addiction, we are simply stating that recovering heroin addicts must try harder and here’s why.

Lifestyle Baby, Lifestyle

To become a heroin addict does not mean that you simply became addicted. And to put it bluntly, heroin addiction equals criminal addiction. Only the rich and famous have the money to stay out of illegal activity to support their habit. The statistics don’t lie, and sorry but there are not 700,000 movie stars running around the country addicted to Heroin. Yes, that is a huge number and counting. What any recovering heroin addict will tell you is that they became a professional shoplifter, burglar, and thief in order to support their addiction. Now what kind of lifestyle is that?


Oh, there’s the big enemy, and the hardest to get used to- FEELINGS. Recovering heroin addicts stayed numb for a reason. And of course, it wasn’t just because they just couldn’t deal with life. They have trouble coping with their feelings. The good news is, is that this enemy quickly becomes your friend once you get clean and sober, and you remember what feeling feels like. Getting high over bad feelings won’t be a priority because the best feeling in the world is love and recovery is the strongest form of self-love there is.

We Are Just Stronger

Having returned from the life of a junkie, and entered the life of recovery, means you have been through it all. You have seen jail cells more times in 3 months than anyone else. You have lied to the highest authority and gotten away with it, and you have survived attacks from the greatest of all evils. Heroin Addiction takes everyone down, but recovering from it requires physical, mental, and emotional strength. Not just to get through detox either. But by re-assembling your true character, priorities, and uncovering the honest and good person you were underneath the dope, you will realize, we are stronger.

5 Easy Ways to Assess Your Addiction Recovery

If you haven’t assessed where you are in your recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, maybe you didn’t realize that this is actually quite beneficial. Here we ask you five little questions to answer that should let you know if you are making the best of your recovery.

Are you working?

This answer should only come if you are done with treatment, have bills to pay and by all accounts, ready to be responsible. As recovering addicts and alcoholics getting a job is a new idea altogether. Most of us did not work, or keep a job for very long in our addictions. So if you are employed, give yourself credit because this is pretty hard to live without, as I am sure you have noticed by now. And if you are still floundering around with no plans, then go directly to the extra credit question below. And we are all proud of you for getting clean and sober! Well done!

Have you broken your relapse habits?

Yikes..what are relapse habits? Let’s explain. Relapse is so sneaky it can happen even on your best day of living an awesome new life clean and sober. So it is best to assess what habits are still lingering around in your life that mirror when you were not clean and sober. Are you staying up late, like all the time? Are you blowing off responsibilities? And have you done your laundry? These may seem basic, but these questions are true indicators that you have or haven’t broken your relapse habits. Now, make your own list and get to it!

Did you make amends? At least one.

The action of making amends is so very- very- significant and so very- very- therapeutic for you to do for your life. All it takes is one amends for you to see how great you and everyone else will feel once you get this stuff out in the open, and say you are sorry! It is the pinnacle of taking back the anguish you caused others in YOUR ADDICTION. Begin with two little words, “I’m sorry.” Enough said.

Who is your idol?

As we progress in our recovery, our opinions will change. Who and what we like are going to be extremely different. And as we positively progress in making changes in our new lives, we need a good idol. Here, we beg of you to not say any rock stars who made a success out of being a junkie or a drunk. Look up who is famous and clean and sober! And if you already said it is your sponsor or one of your friends with awesome clean time then you are a star yourself.

What is your routine for chilling out?

Here, we realize that chilling out should have no routine at all. However, making positive use of our free time in a healthy way is all we are getting at. As long as you allow yourself to enjoy positive activities at home or with friends who are clean and sober, you are good.

Extra Credit Question: When did you last count up how many people said they are proud of you?

This is a win-win to do for your recovery. It is full of all the love that we deserve for taking charge of our lives once and for all. It is your recovery and you get back what you put into it. Now make that mental list again and see how good you feel!

3 Reasons Why Faith Is Important In Early Recovery

For addicts in early recovery, the first step in the right direction was a miracle that took place the day you decided to get help for your addictions. Maybe on that day, you saw that the bottom doesn’t end and it can get worse? Or maybe you decided you are worth more than what the drugs are giving you. And if you haven’t ever thought that there is some force out there looking after your best interest then perhaps you’ve never said the famous phrase “thank God.” But if you have then you may already know that having faith in early recovery is what will push you up from the bottom and get you closer to feeling better, to feeling hope and to feeling that there is a place in this world for you clean and sober. Here are the three small, yet big reasons why faith is important in early recovery.

What Does Faith Have to Do with It?

Faith does not mean that you aren’t capable of taking charge of your life, or your recovery. Faith also doesn’t mean that you have to give up certain foods, pray constantly or sit in silent meditation for hours on end. What faith is, is allowing yourself to believe that there is something greater than you that has kept you safe and alive throughout your addiction, and why you are reading this now, is all faith is. And those are pretty big reasons, right?

Who Is In Charge Anyway?

Who is in charge? The answer to that question is, of course, you! It is not important who you believe in or what. What is important for you in your recovery is that you find comfort in knowing that your life’s plan is to live clean and sober. No-one’s life plan is to be a junkie, a drunk or a criminal. If you choose God or a higher power to help you in your recovery, then we are here to tell you that you will have even more strength than you thought.

Because God’s got Your Back

Being in early recovery is not easy. It is full of worry, anxiety, and guilt. It is also full of joy, and hope. Getting through the first couple days, or weeks and months you will need all the help you can get. Turn to us, to your family and to God. Because the day that you realized you were tired of living in pain and running from the world just to get high or drunk is  the day that God (or your higher power) whispered into your ear, I’ve got your back.

Family Coping Skills for Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Coping with a loved one’s drug or alcohol addiction is a complicated and ongoing process. Many people can manage their addictions if they choose to, however, this is a daunting task and never easy. Often family members have a harder time coping with the events that occur when their favorite addict is slipping. It’s highly advisable to find ways to battle these demons on your own or with others who are experiencing similar pain. Here are a few skills that may help spark some relief while your friend or family is learning to manage.

  1. Meditate
  2. AL-anon Meetings
  3. Speak to Minister, priest or a spiritual guide
  4. Don’t be Naïve or Overly Trusting
  5. Educate yourself
  6. Keep the faith and hope
  7. Watch your money carefully
  8. Don’t assume the blame
  9. Confront manipulating conversations
  10. Rehab is only the beginning
  11. Prepare for relapse; it’s part of the journey

Meditation is one of the oldest forms of Eastern medicine that can help you cope with your thoughts and mind activity. When dealing with addicts, it’s important to do what you can to maintain your sanity. Meditation can certainly help with the ongoing struggles of guilt and pain.

Attend support groups like Al-anon, as this is one of your greatest forms of defense. What you’ll find is you’re not alone, and a sponsor can help you stay on course when the addict wants to knock you off.

Speaking to your higher power or someone you trust is another form of combating against the disease of addiction. Don’t hesitate to lean on these people or your spirituality to give you the sanction you need to stay active.

Manipulation lies and cheating is all a part of the cycle. Don’t accept these things, confront the person who is the addict when you know there’s an issue. Don’t trust them with money or your valuables. Unfortunately, the disease will make them do what they must to meet their needs.

Educate yourself as often as you can. There’s always new information out there and by researching, studying and using what you can help you to feel in control of an out of control situation.

Keep your faith and hope. Believe it or not, these people do change and can live a high quality of life. If you give up, they’ll know, which could lead to worse consequences.

The Benefits of Faith in Addiction Recovery

The Benefits of Faith in Addiction Recovery

For centuries, Christian leaders have sought to build the faith of those who are hurting and troubled. Offering helpful guidance and support, this “care of souls” typically focuses on spiritual matters, but also brings relief in physical, mental and emotional struggles.

Acknowledging the positive role of religion and spirituality in helping people is not merely historic trivia. There is a growing body of evidence that demonstrates the power of a faith-based approach for preventing and treating substance abuse.

Faith Empowers Recovery

Treatment programs that do not ignore the spiritual aspects of recovery seem to have distinct advantages over those based purely on science. An in-depth study from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse found that God, religion and spirituality are key factors for many individuals in effectively dealing with substance abuse and in their continuing recovery.

For the religious person, faith involves belief and trust in God and the doctrines or scriptures of their particular religion. The faith-based approach to treatment emphasizes the importance of these elements and seeks to incorporate them accordingly. For example, recovery from addiction often begins with the need to place faith in treatment personnel, recovering peers or a power greater than one’s self.

The values that are important to people of faith are operative in bringing about real psychological and emotional change. It’s no coincidence that things like unconditional love, acceptance, self-respect, forgiveness and community often form the core of effective treatment and recovery programs.

The particular mechanisms by which faith produces such potent results in treatment, recovery and ongoing sobriety are still being studied, but the benefits provided by faith and spirituality to empower an effective recovery are well-known and undeniable.

Faith Lowers Risk

The influence of religion not only aids those recovering from substance abuse but also has enormous potential for lowering the initial risk of substance abuse among teens and adults.

The deep convictions arising from personal faith profoundly affect how individuals respond and cope with life’s challenges. This, in turn, has a strong positive effect on preventing the behaviors often associated with alcohol or drug abuse.

Additionally, particular religious doctrines that prohibit alcohol or drug use have been shown to lower the rates of substance abuse and dependence among individuals who subscribe to such beliefs.

Consider the following statistics:

Adults who do not consider religious beliefs important are:

  • One and half times more likely to smoke
  • Three times more likely to binge drink
  • Six times more likely to smoke pot
  • Nearly four times more likely to use an illicit drug other than marijuana

Adults who never attend religious services are:

  • Three times more likely to smoke
  • Five times more likely to use an illicit drug other than marijuana
  • Nearly seven times more likely to binge drink
  • Almost eight times more likely to smoke pot
  • Although religious people still struggle with various addictions, these statistics illustrate the power of faith to lower the risks of engaging in abusive behaviors.

    Faith Encourages Personal Change

    Different recovery programs incorporate faith-based elements in unique ways. But the majority of them recognize similar benefits from the religious components of treatment.

    Some of the common benefits that a person may experience from treatment that emphasizes a spiritual approach include:

    • Newfound happiness and freedom
    • Serenity and a new world outlook
    • Less selfish behavior
    • The ability to help others and feel useful
    • No longer regretting past decisions
    • Having the ability to handle any particular situation
    • Letting go of feelings of self-pity

    These types of changes and more can form a strong foundation for ongoing success and long-term sobriety.

    America is the most medically advanced country in the world. Our physicians are highly trained and have access to sophisticated treatments and equipment as well as impressive research and care facilities.

    Yet science and religion are not opposing forces in the world of substance abuse treatment. By combining the best of both worlds, individuals are provided with powerful resources to enable and sustain their recovery. For helping to ease suffering, encouraging real change and sustaining progress, there is much to commend the place of God, faith and religion as a powerful ally in substance abuse treatment.

    Physician Heal Thyself Healthcare Professionals & Addiction

    Physician Heal Thyself: Healthcare Professionals & Addiction

    Healthcare professionals are at significant risk of developing a substance use disorder, and they face special challenges in treatment and recovery. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services points to research estimating that between ten and 15 percent of all healthcare professionals are addicted to alcohol or drugs. Additionally, the majority of license revocations and other disciplinary actions among healthcare workers are related to drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.

    Healthcare Professionals at Risk

    Doctors, nurses, EMTs and other healthcare workers prescribe and administer drugs on a daily basis. For some, the constant exposure and easy accessibility to any number of psychoactive drugs can pose a problem. The tendency to self-medicate various ailments can leave healthcare workers vulnerable to drug abuse, addiction and dependence, and an intimate knowledge of drugs may offer a false sense of control over their drug use.

    Stress and trauma are two major triggers for drug abuse, and healthcare workers experience a great deal of both. Witnessing trauma on a daily basis is par for the course for many EMTs and other healthcare professionals, and stress levels can skyrocket very quickly in the medical field.

    Using drugs or alcohol to combat stress or to ease the anxiety and other symptoms that often follow exposure to trauma may seem to help for the short-term, but in many cases, self-medicating will lead to addiction, particularly since procuring certain drugs of abuse is so easy for many healthcare workers and the ongoing underlying stress and anxiety aren’t being addressed in constructive ways.

    Challenges in Treatment and Recovery

    Healthcare workers aren’t as likely as other populations to seek help for a substance use disorder due to the fear of disciplinary action, which could include license revocation. And yet without professional help, the addiction will likely only get worse. This is a frightening prospect, as mistakes are more likely to be made when a healthcare worker is under the influence on the job.

    Healthcare workers in recovery face a number of challenges as well, including repeated exposure to stress and trauma, long working hours, being in close proximity to a wide range of drugs, and feelings of guilt and shame, particularly if co-workers are aware of the addiction.

    The Importance of Getting Help

    Drug use usually escalates if it’s not addressed, and for medical professionals, this means an increased risk of making mistakes that could endanger others’ lives. If you’re a medical professional with an addiction, getting help before your drug use leads to injury or death, the revocation of your license or a black mark on your professional reputation is crucial for both public safety and preventing the addiction from destroying your career.

    A high-quality treatment program geared toward healthcare workers will offer the best chance of recovery. This type of program will address the unique challenges and issues faced by addicted individuals in your profession, including the presence of co-occurring mental illnesses like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. In many cases, treatment will include therapy sessions or psychoeducational classes that address licensing or disciplinary issues as well as offer practical solutions for restoring your career or repairing your reputation.

    Trying to hide your addiction and coping with the added stress of doing so can considerably reduce your quality of life and sense of well-being, but you can restore both by engaging in a high-quality treatment program and ending your cycle of addiction once and for all.

    Single Parents and Addiction Resources for Recovery

    Single Parents and Addiction: Resources for Recovery

    24 Feb 2016 Recovery

    Being a single parent isn’t easy no matter how you look at it, but if you’re a single parent with a drug addiction, you’re probably struggling more than necessary. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, professional help is almost always needed to overcome an addiction for the long-term, but single parents face a number of unique barriers to entering treatment. These include practical concerns like childcare and maintaining employment as well as the problem of time constraints.

    Still, getting help is essential for both your physical and mental health and the well-being of your child. Children of a parent who abuses substances are at an increased risk of developing academic, social, emotional, physical and behavioral problems, and this vulnerability increases when it’s the mother who has a substance use disorder.

    Why Getting Help is Essential for Single Parents

    Competent parenting requires being sensitive to all of the needs of your child, including social, emotional and physical. Mood- and mind-altering substances impact your ability to tune in to and meet those needs, and this is particularly true in a single-parent household where there may be a high level of stress or mental illness like anxiety or depression.

    Additionally, drug addiction can take a serious toll on your finances, and living in poverty further puts a child at risk for a wide range of problems later in life. Finding the resources you need to achieve long-term recovery is crucial for protecting your child from the often-devastating effects of living with an addicted parent.

    Outpatient Treatment Resources for Single Parents

    Ensuring access to treatment for challenged populations is a major focus of many quality treatment programs. This is particularly true when it comes to ensuring single parents are able to get the help they need.

    Intensive outpatient programs are available for those who are unable to enter a residential treatment program, although for those with a severe addiction, residential treatment offers the best possible outcome. Intensive outpatient programs enable single parents to continue working and taking care of business on the home front while participating in individual and group therapy in the daytime or evening. Many of these programs offer childcare services, which are essential for many single parents who have no or limited childcare options.

    Because one of the guiding principles of successful treatment is the necessity of addressing all of the individual’s needs and not just those related to the addiction, intensive outpatient treatment programs for single parents often match participants with a case manager. A case manager will help identify essential needs that can’t be addressed through the treatment program and connects the parent with crucial services and resources in the community.

    Resources may include:

    • Legal assistance
    • Vocational training
    • Educational assistance
    • Food assistance
    • Help finding safe and affordable housing
    • Various parenting resources

    Residential Programs for Single Parents

    Some residential treatment programs will accommodate a single parent and one or more children who live on the treatment center campus. In addition to housing and meals, these programs provide childcare while the parent is engaged in treatment. In many cases, children engage in counseling as well, which helps reduce their risk of developing emotional and substance abuse problems later on.

    Single-parent residential programs offer a high level of support and often provide coaching to help parents repair any damage done to the child and learn new skills to help them parent more effectively moving forward.

    12-Step Support Groups for Single Parents

    The National Institutes on Health cites 12-step support groups as the most common and widely attended groups for support in recovery, and they’re positively correlated with abstinence and retention in treatment. Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous groups specifically geared toward single parents can help promote successful recovery by offering a high level of emotional support and promoting personal accountability and an overall healthy lifestyle. Twelve-step group attendance is often an integral part of an inpatient or outpatient treatment program.

    The Bottom Line

    If you’re a single parent with an addiction, beating your drug addiction is crucial for ensuring the best possible future for you and your child. Without help, the addiction will, in most cases, only get worse and may lead to the inability to care for your child at all.

    With a little motivation and perseverance, you can find a treatment program that will address your challenges and work with you to ensure you’re able to get the help you need. The most important thing is to get the help you need sooner rather than later. Doing so will vastly improve your and your child’s quality of life and restore your physical and mental health so that you can focus on effectively parenting your child.

    My Child Has an Addiction Part 14 How to Support Recovery After Treatment

    My Child Has an Addiction Part 14: How to Support Recovery After Treatment

    There’s not much you can do to prepare yourself for the fear, anger and pain that accompanies learning your child has a drug or alcohol addiction. Substance abuse affects the whole family, and the best way to help your child get the help needed to recover is to thoroughly educate yourself about recovery and post-treatment.

    The more you know about addiction, the better you can help your child come to terms with their addiction, find helpful resources, choose the right treatment program and become involved in your child’s treatment and aftercare in the most effective ways possible.

    This 14-part series is designed to help provide you with the information you need to face this struggle and help your child and your family find the path to recovery.

    The Early Stage of Recovery and Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome

    Recovery is a lifelong endeavor, and in the early years, it requires a high level of support. That’s why it’s important for your child to fully engage in the aftercare plan – or alumni program like what is offered at Gracious Care – that’s individualized and set in place after treatment. According to a study published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, the likelihood of maintaining sobriety increases by 20 percent for each consecutive month of engagement in aftercare programming.

    The early stage of recovery is the abstinence stage. During the one to two-year duration of this phase, your child will be focused on accepting his addiction and developing a new self-identity as a non-user. He will practice honesty with himself and others; develop skills for coping with stress, triggers and cravings; learn to practice a high level of self-care; and develop a healthy lifestyle that’s conducive to sobriety.

    The primary danger during the abstinence stage is post-acute withdrawal syndrome, or PAWS, which begins shortly after quitting drugs or alcohol and lasts as long as two years. Symptoms of PAWS are usually intermittent, going away for several days or weeks and then returning for a time.

    Symptoms of PAWS include mood swings, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, irritability, low energy levels and disturbed sleep patterns. While the aftercare plan is designed to address the symptoms of PAWS, family support is also essential for helping your child navigate the early months and years of sobriety.

    Continue Family Education, Therapy and Support

    For you and other family members, continuing to engage in family therapy and participate in a family support group is crucial for helping your child through the abstinence stage of recovery.

    Ongoing family therapy will continue to help you restore function to your household. Dysfunction in the family is a major relapse trigger, and learning effective communication skills and developing healthy ways of thinking and behaving within the family system are essential for improving family dynamics.

    You will need a high level of support once your child leaves rehab and returns to regular life. Continuing to participate in your support group will provide you with emotional and practical support as well as help you find the resources you need to best help your child through the often-rocky first months of recovery. You’ll also have the opportunity to offer sage advice and a sympathetic ear to families who are just beginning their recovery journey.

    Continue to educate yourself, focusing now on the mechanics of relapse and relapse prevention. Know the stages of relapse—emotional, mental, and physical—and how to recognize the signs of each stage.

    Know what to do should a lapse or relapse occur. Perhaps most importantly, remember that relapse is now considered to be the norm rather the exception in recovery, and it never means that treatment failed. Rather, it’s an opportunity to develop missing skills that will contribute to long-term sobriety moving forward.

    Aftercare is Essential…

    Engagement in aftercare is the number one overall predictor of abstinence. The National Council of Alcoholism and Drug Dependence stresses the importance of supporting your loved one’s participation in the aftercare plan. Encourage your child to attend and participate in meetings and therapy, and let him know you support him and believe in him.

    …And So is Hope

    Perhaps most importantly, always hold onto your hope, which is the foundation of recovery. No matter what challenges crop up or what setbacks leave you feeling rattled and worried, let your child know that your hope and your love are undying and unconditional.

    My Child Has an Addiction Part 13: Aftercare and Relapse Prevention

    There’s not much you can do to prepare yourself for the fear, anger and pain that accompanies learning your child has a drug or alcohol addiction. Substance abuse affects the whole family, and the best way to help your child get the help needed to recover is to thoroughly educate yourself about aftercare and relapse prevention.

    The more you know about addiction, the better you can help your child come to terms with their addiction, find helpful resources, choose the right treatment program and become involved in your child’s treatment and aftercare in the most effective ways possible.

    This 14-part series is designed to help provide you with the information you need to face this struggle and help your child and your family find the path to recovery.

    Aftercare & Relapse Prevention

    The primary concern after treatment is preventing a lapse, which can lead to a relapse of the addiction. A high-quality treatment center will develop an aftercare plan based on your child’s needs. The aftercare plan typically includes ongoing individual, group and family therapy and participation in a support group, both of which are major players in relapse prevention.

    The plan may also include components like time in a sober living facility to ease the transition from treatment back into the community and vocational rehab to help your child brush up on job skills and find employment. In the months after treatment, your child will continue to develop skills and strategies for reducing stress, dealing with cravings and coping with high-risk situations and other triggers.

    The more engaged your child is in the aftercare programming, the better the chances of successful long-term recovery.

    Understanding Relapse

    Addiction relapse doesn’t happen overnight. Rather, it occurs in three distinct stages, and learning the signs and symptoms of each stage can help you recognize and correct issues in your child’s recovery before they lead to a lapse or relapse.

    Emotional relapse is the first stage, during which your child isn’t consciously thinking about using, but her emotions and behaviors may be setting her up for an eventual lapse. Mental relapse is the second stage, during which your child is beginning to think about using again. Physical relapse is the final stage at which the lapse actually occurs.

    If your child lapses or relapses, it’s critical to understand that this doesn’t mean that treatment failed, and it will be crucial for you to help your child respond to it in a healthy way. A negative emotional response to a lapse increases the chances that the addiction will relapse, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

    When a lapse or relapse occurs, the aftercare plan will be revised, and your child will likely attend more therapy sessions and recovery group meetings, during which he’ll work through the issues that led to the lapse or relapse and develop the skills necessary to prevent the same thing from happening again.

    Recovery is a Lifelong Pursuit

    It takes time to develop an addiction, and it takes time for brain function to normalize and for your child to sort through the issues surrounding the drug or alcohol abuse and addiction and develop new lifestyle habits that promote sobriety.

    Your child may experience cravings and have to cope with triggers for the rest of her life, and to that end, the early months and years of recovery are an important learning process. Ongoing individual and family therapy and a lifelong commitment to participation in a 12-step support group will be essential for achieving long-term abstinence.

    The more support your child has from family and friends through challenges, setbacks, victories and milestones, the more successful his recovery will likely be.

    “When Your Child Has an Addiction” Continues

    In the final entry in this series, learn about the early stages of recovery, syndromes that challenge sobriety and how to provide ongoing support for your child’s sobriety. Continued in “My Child Has an Addiction, Part 14: How to Support Recovery After Treatment”.
