Addiction and the Workplace
Recovering addicts have much to offer an employer but disclosing your situation may not always be favorable. Use common sense and don't be so quick to wear your recovering heart on your sleeve. Know the difference between honesty and foolishness.
Where We Are Supposed To Be
When we begin recovery we are told that sobriety will change our lives. It does. But there is also a real world. Somehow, though, we always end up exactly where we are supposed to be.
A Fearless Step Four
Step Four moves us into action. We finally begin to discover who we are and the many "whys" of our behavior. This is one of the few steps that is really all about YOU!
We ARE Addicts - Part II
Part II. A continued review and information about an article published in the USC Trojan Family Magazine. Experts continue to do what they can to understand addiction. The article is down-to-earth, rarely clinical, and if nothing else quite interesting in how we are viewed by science.

Cunning, Baffling, and Powerful
An addiction of any type can change our lives and the lives of others in many ways. Being in recovery can be bittersweet. We see the chaos and devastation of addiction but we can also see the importance in connecting with others in recovery.
Easy Doesn't Always Do It
The phrase "easy does it" is familiar to everyone. But easy doesn´t do it when we pick and choose which steps we work. Recovery means working all 12 Steps, not just the easy ones!
Step Three: After the Decision
Step Three is much more than a decision. Turning our will and lives over to a Higher Power takes practice. We'll never be perfect but every time we can let go, we grow spiritually and emotionally.
A Higher Power
You may believe in God but finding the Higher Power that works for your recovery may take time and even imagination.
Believing in a Higher Power is crucial to recovery. The key, however, to living a life of peace and serenity is not only believing but having a daily, conscious contact with God.
