Introduction to Recovery

Introduction to Recovery
Wednesdays @ 2pm
The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston

This will be a very basic introduction to the recovery process and serve as a bridge between currently available Council services and the 12-step community. It is appropriate for any client new to recovery, considering recovery, or with any related questions. The speaker is a volunteer, personable, positive, and active in the 12-step process, who will give a 40-minute presentation on a weekly basis, followed by the opportunity to ask questions or talk with him one-on-one.

This is a no-cost, informative, non-threatening way to connect with community support, open to anyone.

Keeping it fresh

I really enjoyed talking with call specialists last week. We had lively conversations about the unique work environment at 211.

If you attended one of those sessions, please feel free to post comments and questions here. What was helpful or useful for you? What wasn’t? Have you practiced some of the tools we talked about? Why or why not? What would you want to know more about?

Women Whispering with Horses

There’s a wonderful workshop offered at Red Dun Ranch called Women Whispering with Horses.

Women Whispering allows you a chance to connect with a horse in a way you may never have experienced. Rather than riding the horse, you are on the horse’s level – face to face, nose to nose, shoulder to shoulder. Connecting with the horse in this way, you will have the opportunity to discover a deeper level of confidence, communication, and trust.

The next Women Whispering workshop will be offered Sunday, May 23, 2010. The workshop is offered about once a month.  Space is limited to 10 participants. Cost is $75 pre-paid; $90 at the door.

Location: Red Dun Ranch, 14034 Hooper Rd., Houston, TX 77047. Red Dun Ranch
