Addiction and substance abuse disorders are quick to take over your life and everything that’s important to you. When you’re in active addiction, drugs and alcohol become your main priority, and the importance of things like physical and mental health, work, school, and family gets drowned out by your need to not be sober.

 

Once you get sober, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life, and forget that taking care of yourself is not an option, but a priority. Taking care of yourself sounds like an easy and simple task, but the reality is that most people struggle to find healthy ways to take care of themselves, whether they’re in recovery or not.

We will be located in the parking lot of St. John’s Episcopal Church.  Just google St John’s Episcopal Church Detroit and you will find our location.

 

The convention takes place at the TFC Convention center.  This is formally known as Cobo Hall, so that’s not confusing.  The evening Keynotes meetings will take place in Ford Field, where the Detroit Lions play.  Our tent location is between the TFC Center and Ford Field.

Now, back to the show…

 

Listener Jenny has one year today

Congratulations Jenny and we are looking forward to meeting you at the 2020 convention here in DETROIT!

 

Tonight, the topic is 

Self Care

 

The idea of self-care doesn’t have to be overwhelming or scary, though it definitely can be at first. In today’s culture, self-care is often thought to be taking a long bath or treating yourself to a new clothing item, but it’s so much more than that. Self-care is different for everyone, and can look like a variety of different things. For some, self-care will be doing the dishes after coming out of a depressive episode, for others, it will be buying a ticket to see a movie after a stressful week. Self-care looks different for everyone, and that’s okay.

 

Let’s start at the beginning

Self Care was going to be the topic?
