Hundreds of people all over the world misuse and abuse prescription drugs, whether it be intentionally or unintentionally.

This could mean that taking someone else’s prescribed medication, taking more than what your doctor has prescribed. For example – regularly taking twice as many tranquilisers as prescribed.
Positive self-talk is an essential part of our daily lives but is particularly important during the process of addiction recovery.
Without even realizing it, we are constantly engaging in an internal dialogue with ourselves. This conversation takes place almost all day, every single day.
There are many additional activities that we can incorporate into our lives during the process of addiction recovery which can be instrumental in our path towards sobriety.
Addiction recovery is not just about no longer using a substance; it’s about finding new ways to enjoy our lives, or remembering what gave us joy before we became addicted.
