Monday is Unmanageability Group. This is part of the core of Step One. Very often it is not the powerlessness over our addiction that brings on relapse, but our unmanageable lifestyle.
Being late for work, losing your phone…..again, having a blazing row with your nearest and dearest and getting into debt. These are some of the reasons addicts have given for relapsing. “I just couldn’t handle it” was how many put it.
We teach clients how to live a responsible, manageable life without the use of chemicals. Bringing up issues at group, having long-held beliefs challenged. Getting to the root causes of our addictions. Learning how to deal with life’s problems in a manageable fashion. Addicts often stop maturing when they start using their drug of choice. Now is a good time to continue to grow, we also become inspired seeing others get well.
