Together @ House of Hope

We’re all in this together

Recovery from addiction begins with getting honest, about when, how, and what happens when we are under the influence of alcohol/drugs.

About how our addiction is taking up more and more of our time, money, friendships, freedom, and sanity.

Think about it… when we’ve had drugs and alcohol in our system, have we ever:

  • Lost control of our anger?
  • Done something that we would otherwise never have done?
  • Lied about it and become annoyed when confronted?
  • Broken a relationship with someone we truly loved?
  • Stolen from someone who trusts us?
  • Acted in a way that got us arrested when we didn’t mean to?
  • Committed a crime that cost us our freedom?

We’ve been there, done that and know how to do the work of recovery. You can get your free choices and your life back again. If you are open minded and willing to work it, the program of recovery works. Period.

On the other hand, addiction only gets worse, taking even more of your freedom and sanity…we need each other to get support, learn the program, get honest and get started (or started again).  So what are you waiting for?  Lunch?

Well that comes with it too…  we hope to see you soon.

The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.

  2.  Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

  3.  Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

  4.  Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

  5.  Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

  6.  Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

  7.  Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

  8.  Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

  10.  Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

  11.  Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

  12.  Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
