THE RECOVERY ACTION PLAN
IS A GIVING BACK PROGRAM
Our mission is to assist individuals of all ages and backgrounds who suffer the direct or indirect effects of all types of addictions and who are seeking assistance with recovery.
Recovery Action Plan Program will assist these people in finding their potential and guide them towards a better future by helping them make informed choices. A goal of the recovery action plan program is to help reunite the family unit and teach what resources are available to all who desire to becoming useful participants in society, living a safe, healthy and productive life. We facilitate therapeutic group sessions and assist people in learning what tools are needed to find their way to recovery and remain abstinent..
Our purpose is to give back what was freely given to us in our own recovery. We want to help people find and make their way in a difficult world.

We can only get out of
recovery, what you put into it.
Hi my name is Peter, I started using alcohol at the age of five, not knowing the disastrous effects it would have on my life. Alcohol created in me an addictive personality and was the beginning of my nightmare. For the next 35 years, I was in and out of recovery, never really understanding or truly caring enough about myself to do something about my addiction.
It wasn't until I was diagnosed with cancer, only 28% use of my heart, C.O.P.D., diabetes and degenerative disc disease; that my eyes were finally opened to what I have done to myself.
All of these illnesses brought me out of denial. Which sent me in a direction that taught me the tools necessary to learn how to recover from my addictions. It wasn't until I honestly admitted I was defeated and killing myself, that my life began to change for the better.
HAVING THE WILLINGNESS TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF
If you are willing to get better?
The following are some of the common questions that may be asked of you, once you've made the decision to try and help yourself.
1) Why are you here?
2)What do you expect?
3) What are your main concerns?
4) What are you doing to help yourself?
5) Have you ever been to treatment?
6) How long have you had this problem?
7) Do you have trust issues?
These are not "trick" questions, and there are no right or wrong answers. They are designed to help you figure out how you are feeling about your life right now. This program and many others mention's GOD. Do not let that scare you. This is not a religious organization, but a spiritual one. All that means basically, is a positive change in attitude and action in a person's life. Recovery is not a race and you are encouraged to proceed at your own pace. The biggest problem facing many consistent change. We may have become set in our ways and change will come eventually. We are often impatient, wanting thing to change quickly. Recovery is a process that takes time. We became addicted over time, and we also recover over time.
Many of us have problems with honesty. We are talking about honesty with ourselves. When we get honest enough with ourselves to admit we have a problem, we find that all of us have had experiences that can help others also. This process is called "identification" and helps us greatly in recovery. Identification is the reason to attend support groups. We find that we are not unique or alone anymore in our "crazy" thinking or behavior. We have had a hard time with trust because sadly, we do not trust ourselves. Making changes will help us resolve these difficult issues. Mistakes are for learning and we learn from them, hopefully.
Always remember: You haven't failed, you just haven't yet succeeded. Keep going! We will help by assisting you in achieving your goals.
