Tips for Early Recovery

 

Joe has extensive personal and coaching experience with addiction and mental health
conditions, including bipolar, depression and anxiety.

While I understand the desire to move on, I also know that moving too fast can lead to
mistakes, bad decisions and physical or mental “crashes.” Speed shortens our reaction time
and can magnify a bad choice. We have to learn to slow down. It may sound far too simple to
make a difference, but often it’s the most important change in thinking you can make. Learning
to fight the instinct to go fast and instead slow down is difficult, but worthwhile.

WEBINARS

Addiction & Recovery in the LGBTQIA+ Community: June

In our June webinar, we’re having a discussion with Terri and David, two Face It TOGETHER employees who are in recovery and are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. You’ll hear their personal stories and answers to questions like, “What role did your identity as an LGBTQIA+ individual play in your recovery?” “How were you affected by stigma, and how did you move forward?” “What would you say to someone who’s struggling with their identity and using alcohol or other drugs to self-medicate?” June 9, 5:30 p.m. MST

Managing chronic pain and opioid recovery: May

When Joe was 23 years old, a chance encounter with a renegade donkey put him in the ER with a serious back injury, along with his first Demerol injection. What followed was 20-year addiction to pain medication and other drugs. He went from a professional doctor shopper to being pain-med free in 2008. In 2021, at age 60, his back injury became acute – he needed major surgery and was facing a seven-month opioid-based pain management program with drugs even stronger than those he took during his addiction. He was suddenly faced with the question, “After all these years, could he use and not abuse opioids?” 

Overcoming the shame of addiction: March

Overcoming the guilt and shame of things you did while struggling with addiction isn’t easy. Maybe you lied, stole or weren’t there for the people in your life who needed you. Maybe you did none of these, or all of them. We’ll hear from David DelSignore, Face It TOGETHER’s Project Coordinator, who has a powerful story of recovery and overcoming shame. March 3rd, 5:30PM

sELF-CARE IN THE wORKPLACE: February

The average person spends more than one-third of their day, five days a week, at work. Self-care is critical to preventing burnout, boosting morale and increasing productivity in the workplace. In this webinar, you’ll get to meet three new Face It TOGETHER coaches. You’ll hear about their personal recovery journeys and how they each practice self-care at work.

Recovery from meth addiction: Kattie’s story: January
