Disclosure: I received compensation from Recovery Unplugged for this sponsored post, any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience.

The definition of “Recovery” is:

  • restoration or return to health from sickness. 
  • restoration or return to any former and better state or condition.
  • the regaining of something lost

recovery unplugged songwriting contest.

Recovery is something we have been hoping for my 18-year-old niece.  We know it takes time, but we want her to want it.  There is a part of me that feels that she wants it, but then her mind works against herself.  As we say, “she is her own worst enemy”.  Time will tell how it will go, and we keep waiting and will keep waiting because we love her that much.

I love the whole concept of Recovery Unplugged.  The numbers are rising for people with addiction.  It comes in many forms and it shows up in the people you least expect.  In our area, the number of rehabilitation places are far lower than the amount of people that are reaching out for help.  There are waiting lists of 1-2 months if not more.  How many people that are looking for help NOW can wait up to 2 months to start their journey to get help.

If mental health is causing the addiction, there are not many places that will take that person (in our area).  The reason being is they have to ‘just have an addiction’ that is not brought on my mental health needs.  This is why this program is special to me because our family is living it.

Music is important to many people.  For some, it helps them cope with what they are going through.  This can be music that helps them feel better, or music that makes them reflect on a time that was a happy time in their lives.  Some find it cathartic and it allows them to express themselves in a different outlet then what they are used to doing.

Becky

Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. Entering into their 'empty nest' stage in life, Becky, and her husband Roger are learning to live with their youngest away at school more than not. Becky enjoys way too many TV programs but her favorites are normally criminal based or something to make her laugh. Keep an eye out because 2018 is going to be her year!
