Struggling to find any gratitude this holiday season? Maybe you’re going through a tough time, or just struggling to conjure up something to feel good about. But don’t worry, all is not lost! Many of us needed a little prompting. Read on for our Gratitude Checklist and get inspired.
Numerous studies have been published over the last decade singing the praises of gratitude for improving everything from mental well being to physical health and personal relationships. Why exactly is gratitude so potent? Here’s what the research says:
President Trump signed sweeping legislation last week to tackle the nationwide opioid epidemic. As the country is ravaged by the staggering numbers of drug overdose deaths, the new bill is aimed at helping people overcome addiction and preventing addictions before they start.
In cities across America, the synthetic opioid fentanyl has created a public health crisis of unprecedented magnitude. The drug, mostly unknown just a few years ago has led to record-setting overdose deaths and appears to be the new and deadly face of the opioid epidemic.
You can help your loved one get the help they so desperately need by staging an intervention. In an intervention, loved ones confront the addict/alcoholic about their substance abuse problem and offer help.
Many of us in recovery struggle with food addiction. Maybe we’ve always had an issue with food, or maybe we “switched addictions” after we got sober. The result is the same, though: Unhealthy eating, a cycle of shame and guilt, and a feeling of powerlessness.
Brain researchers have made great strides in recent generations contributing to a much deeper understanding of what underlies the addictive processes. An understanding of the way addiction hijacks the brain can help to explain why so many who want to stop are powerless in the face of a strong desire to quit.
