This workshop is for anyone in recovery or who has a friend or family member who is.

It is not intended to replace a 12 Step program or any other means of getting clean and sober, but addresses the next steps to take on the path of recovery.

Overcoming addiction to alcohol or drugs is not easy. But it is so worth it.

To be able to look people in the eye and know that you are only going to speak your truth

  • to have put behind you the lying and cheating
  • to wake up naturally instead of “coming to”
  • to feel you are making significant contribution to the people in your life

These are some of the benefits of being clean and sober.

As a person in recovery rebuilds their life in sobriety, whether or not they are using the spiritual toolkit of a 12 Step program, there comes a point when they realise that the obsession with their drug of choice, whether it be alcohol or drugs, has been lifted. They no longer think obsessively about the substance – it is no longer part of their daily life.

Then come the questions: “So…what’s next? I’m sober – now what? What am I going to do for the rest of my life? Who am I? and what is my purpose?”

In this workshop we will address these questions and look at what constitutes the next step for those embracing recovery, so they can move beyond survival and begin to thrive in long term recovery.
