Chief Greenberg commenting upon the opioid crisis: “Enforcement has to go hand in hand with treatment, rehab, therapy, and all the other services that we’re trying to provide,” Greenberg said. “Until we interrupt that cycle, we’re going to see more homeless people, addiction problems, mental health issues, and we’re going to see more overdose deaths until we get a grasp on this.” - From @behindthebadgenews - #chief #chiefofpolice #drug #drugoverdose #publicsafety #lawenforcement #sobriety #treatment #rehab #addiction #tustin #tustinpoa #tustinpolice #tustinpd #aa #na #drugabuse #help #thinblueline

Think About That, Then Think About This @teloslifestylecoaching + Do you have the #courage to be free? + Better yet… + Do you have the courage to do what it takes to have the freedom that will make you happy? + Think about that. + Then think about this. + You are probably self-sabotaging your own freedom, and therefore your #happiness? + You’re afraid to be free. + 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ + You like not having #freedom, freedom is actually #scary because: What would you do with all the freedom? + “But I hate feeling trapped.” You sure about that? + Being #trapped might be serving you. + Think about that. + Now think about this: No freedom = no happiness. Just #anxiety, overwhelm and a giant energy suck! + Stop trapping yourself in #addiction, #pain, and #selfsabotagingbehaviors. + #setyourselffree. Let yourself #behappy. Everyone deserves to be #happyjoyousandfree. Have the #courage to get out of #yourprison. The door is actually already #unlocked. + If you’re struggling with sobriety, and stuck in a prison, or you know someone who is, there’s a freedom party in my DMs and you’re invited! + #thinkaboutthat #thinkaboutthis #thinkaboutit #loveyourself #selflove #becourage #doepicshit #getsober #getrecovered #uncivilized #walkthroughthefires #unbreakablebook

of course i haven’t started kicking yet. the weekend is almost here. the current plan is to kick when i have one day left in my work week. if nobody at work takes my shift, i will have to work while sick.... it isn’t easy to get suboxone or subutex, not from a doctor (unless you want to wait 6-8 weeks to get an appt) and not from the streets. so we aren’t trying to waste what little we actually have because without it, we really won’t make it. that is a no brainer. the worst part is using when you don’t really want to, but you have to bc without it the withdrawals aren’t manageable. i do have faith in this, us, me, and life. but it is pretty dark, hopeless, sad, and just plain difficult right now. 💕

Sometimes we need to fall. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Fall so low that it hurts in ways we’ve never experienced before…fall in such ways where we question all rational thoughts, knowledge and understanding.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣This is such an uncomfortable place for most of us. We don’t like the idea of “falling apart”. We are taught to fear what we feel in that place. That place doesn’t feel good. There’s no way around it. It’s painful and difficult. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣But, in that place is opportunity. There’s resiliency. There’s growth and purpose and wisdom. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Yes, it’s painful and difficult. Yes, we can be afraid. Yes, it can feel as if we can’t go on.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣And yes, it can be these moments that are the most beautiful in our lives. The most beautiful moments to grow and learn and move forward with new understanding of ourselves. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣There is so much opportunity in the moments directly following this pain. We have it within us to choose to do something beautiful with it. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣We just need to embrace that this is all happening for a reason, and then search for the wisdom that is waiting.

Our second town hall meeting is almost upon us.. The first meeting saw about a dozen citizens and we hope to keep growing that number each month. The purpose of these meetings is to allow our community a chance to informally gather and discuss the issues that are important to us. A chance for people to meet other people with the same desire to help our city thrive and grow. Because this is only our second meeting we will not have a single topic or speaker sign ups just yet. Please be aware of your fellow attendees and keep your shares to 5min so we can give everyone a chance to speak.

Our #tbt is in remembrance of Sot, one of our many recovery dogs we’ve had over the years.⠀ ⬇️⠀ When Sot died, Cumberland Height’s director at the time, Jack Albright had this to say:⠀ ⬇️⠀ “During her stay here, Sot endeared herself to several thousand people, serving as counselor, security guard, official greeter and friend. I thank God for the years Sot lived here and for the memories she provided. She will be missed. “Goodbye old friend.”⠀ #recoverlife #dogsofinstagram #therapydogs #nashville #sobriety #companion #addiction #recovery

Climb outside the walls that enclose your certainties. Explore those territories where you’ll encounter realities you’ve never known before.⁣ .⁣ Some of your best possibilities are those you don’t even know about yet. Get yourself out where you can discover what they are.⁣ .⁣ Go where your skills can be tested to their limits. Go where your assumptions can be toppled, where your strengths can be honed.⁣ .⁣ You’ve learned your way so well around this community, this job, this ideology, it’s no longer a challenge. Give yourself the exhilaration of exploring something completely new.⁣ .⁣ Introduce yourself to the people, circumstances, and ideas beyond those you know so well. They will benefit greatly from the new connection, and so will you.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #soberissexy #bethechange #detox#freedomfromaddiction #freedomfromfear#addiction #recovery #recoverywarrior#recoveryisworthit #recover #discover#newlife #lifecoach #fearless #courage#hope #nevergiveup #trusttheprocess#unconditionallove #help #clean #sober#soberlife #sobriety #freedom#spiritualawakening #helpingothers#wedorecover #believeinyourself #livefree⁣

Ytterliga 50 chefer i Göteborg som fått en inblick i vad ett beroende är och hur det kan påverka deras verksamhet! Bolagets HR funktion har också gjort ett gediget arbete med att uppdatera policys samt processer och rutiner för effektiv hantering! Härligt att det finns bolag som tar sitt ansvar i frågan, det mindre trevliga är att allt fler drabbas av beroendesjukdomen, men det finns hjälp att få! Många bra frågeställningar och en härlig dialog! Fick feedback att flera efter dagens föreläsning direkt har ändrat sin uppfattning om den som är sjuk och vad ett beroende är, och då har budskapet gått fram 🤗☺️👌#education #addiction #addictionawareness #management #drugpolicy #understanding #knowledge #lifesaving #healthylifestyle #humanresource #addictionmanagement #codependency

Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I'm tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken.

ZAVISNOST Često čujemo kako je loša zavisnost od cigareta, igrica, slatkog, hrane, droge, druge osobe itd... Šta god da vam padne na pamet. A šta je sa preteranim sportom bilo koje vrste? Ili meditacijom? Crtanjem/slikanjem? Čitanjem? Pretrpavanjem poslom? Kafenisanjem ? Zašto su takve zavisnosti manje loše po naše mentalno zdravlje kada se i iza jednih i drugih nešto krije? Zašto mislimo da sebi činimo dobro time što ćemo na primer otići u teretanu i izbaciti sav svoj bes tamo? Šta bi se desilo kada ne bismo više bili u mogućnosti da radimo to nešto što nam predstavlja beg od stvarnosti? Kako bismo se onda suočili sa onim što se krije iza tog besa? Koja uverenja uopšte stvaraju taj bes? Koje emocije su potisnute? Šta je to što želi da izađe na površinu a mi mu ne damo? Šta je ono sa čime ne želimo da se suočimo? Najlakše je okrenuti se onome što nas smiruje i misliti da smo time rešili problem. Da, možda jesmo trenutno, i možda će nas to dovesti nekih sjajnih rezultata ukoliko nam je zavisnost nešto od čega može da se zarađuje, ali to nije rešenje. To nije dugoročno rešenje za naše mentalno i fizičko zdravlje. Jednostavno nije. Problem će negde nekad morati da ispliva na površinu u bilo kom obliku i tada će fizičko zdravlje/ljubavni odnosi/ prijateljstva/posao biti ugroženi. Nije lako suočiti se, uopšte nije lako. Strašno je. Zahteva naše vreme, energiju i posvećenost. Ali je lakše nego patiti ostatak života i biti zapravo usamljen među onima koji nas okružuju. Stvari koje želimo čekaju na nas. Čekaju, ali mi sami treba da napravimo prostora za njih. Jer... toliko dugujemo sami sebi. #reallife #introspection #selfawereness #addiction #selfcare #healing #life #emotions

Are you addicted to your stress?? . Stress addicts tend to spend a lot of time focusing on just how busy and stressful their lives are. Stress addicts may also find they have no free time and ditch social interactions and fun hobbies in favour of seeking out stressful scenarios while relationships fall by the wayside. ------------------------------------------------------- Sound familiar? . Our society has an ever increasing number of stress addicts, and we are passing it on to our children. They experience the 'high' (excess levels of cortisol and dopamine) from stress at an early age and take it to the next level. ----------------------------------------------------- symptoms/side effects: fatigue, increased heart rate, high blood pressure, insomnia, a change in appetite, anxiety, irritability, depression, withdrawal, and a compromised immune system. Those with high levels of stress are also more prone to other addictions, such as drug or alcohol abuse. -------------------------------------------------- “A stress addict is looking to feel numb through distraction to avoid dealing with the source of unhappiness and loss of control,” says Debbie Mandel, author of Addicted To Stress ---------------------------------------------------- What can you do: Techniques like meditation, breathing exercises, journaling, working out, and guided imagery have all been shown to reduce stress levels.
