Lent is a time of reflection and renewal, a time when we can take a step back from our daily routines and focus on our spiritual and emotional well-being. For those of us in recovery, lent can be a time of heightened awareness and a chance to deepen our commitment to our recovery journey.
Addiction is complex and affects individuals and communities worldwide. Whether it’s drugs, alcohol, and/or other addictive behaviours, addiction can have a devastating impact on a person’s health, relationships, and overall quality of life. However, recovery is possible, and many individuals have successfully overcome addiction and achieved a life of sobriety and purpose.
At Towards Recovery CIC and Green Apple Consulting, we believe in the power of recovery and the importance of a holistic approach to addiction and recovery. We work with individuals and organizations in the addiction, recovery, criminal justice, and social care fields to provide support and guidance on how to initiate and sustain recovery, find and integrate into a community, and build a fulfilling life in sobriety.
Recovery is a process that requires time, effort, and dedication. It’s a journey of self-discovery, healing, and growth. Recovery is not just about stopping the use of substances or addictive behaviours; it’s about developing a new way of life that supports long-term wellness and happiness. Recovery requires a commitment to making healthy choices, building healthy relationships, and cultivating self-awareness and self-care practices.
As we embark on this lenten journey, let us remember the power of recovery and the hope that it brings. Let us commit to taking care of ourselves and each other, to being open and honest about our struggles, and to embracing the gift of a life in recovery.
