Hope in Recovery

Hope in Recovery

This week on social media we are discussing addiction, eating disorders, mental health and therapy. So often in our communities, these topics are stigmatized and laced with shame. This shame allows the darkness to thrive in our lives. Only in shedding light and talking about them can we find both personal healing and healing in our communities. 

Be A Heart came out of the time of my own life where I got sober from alcohol. I met my husband through some friends who I knew through Alcoholics Anonymous. I have been sober for 6 years and he has been sober for 9. He is now also a licensed Marriage and Family therapistpracticing in San Antonio. He has extensive experience in substance abuse and eating disorder treatment. I asked him to share some resources with us for those that might still be struggling. Here is the compilation:

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Alcoholics Anonymous
Find a Substance Abuse Therapist
Narcotics Anonymous
National Institute on Drug Abuse
Self Recovery - an AA alternative

The Brain in Recovery
Association for Addiction Professionals

Find a therapist

Al-Anon - a program for people who love someone who is an addict
ACOA - a program for adult children of alcoholics

I also really, really love the book Breathing Under Water by Richard Rohr, which relates the 12 steps to the Gospel. 

Catholics in Recovery

We hope you'll join us on Instagram this week to hear from others!
