RECOVERY COMMUNITY

Our community serves to allow staff and clients to work together harmoniously to unlearn the past, learn of future possibilities and grow the ability to manifest them. Good Heart Recovery’s staff is dedicated to benefiting others solely on the motivation that if we can exert an enlightening influence on one another, we will also exert a positive influence on the community around us. Within our community, our values include straight-forward honesty, compassionate communication, respect and adjustment when errors are made, acceptance of each individual path to recovery, unified decisions, and space to learn who you really are.

IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTION IN RECOVERY

To deepen our understanding of what recovery means for each of us we must speak from our hearts and our own experience. Our community thrives as an inspiring and helpful place where we can all make progress.

Similar to the dynamics of a family, when an individual is in a recovery program, it is important for all clients and staff to come together in such a way that patience, understanding, and harmony are always present. This allows for someone in recovery to feel comfortable with opening up about the experience of trying to apply recovery teachings in their daily life. Again, we are all trying to make progress. Some of us are new to recovery and some of us are more experienced. However, Good Heart acknowledges that all experiences and all time spent in recovery is valuable and should be shared. Those who have suffered from addiction often feel isolated and withdrawn from the world. We acknowledge this and make it a priority to reduce their suffering by developing a bond between them and their community.

“So it does indeed appear that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, it’s connection. That said, developing healthy interpersonal connections as a part of recovery and healing is not easy. It takes time, effort, and a willing support network. The good news is that we now know for certain that this type of recovery and social connection is possible — even for the most problematic of addicts.”

Recreational & Educational Outings

Positive interpersonal communication, learning that one is not alone in their struggles, and developing a sense of community in recovery is an essential part of obtaining long-term abstinence or harm reduction. Good Heart’s outings include experiential hikes, group beach meditation, volunteer work with local non-profits, and therapeutic bonding activities.

Community-Based Groups

Learning to accept support and provide it to peers in need, our clients experience the types of groups that encourage and influence the creation of a long-lasting community. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind groups.

“A lot of the time an addict gets into their patterns and negative habits because they are really craving [human] bonding and the drug or alcohol becomes a tool to achieve that bonding they’re not getting elsewhere.”
