How Do I Stop Drinking and Stop Taking Drugs in Alberta?


I’m from Alberta and Want Help to Stop Drinking and Taking Drugs For illustrative purposes, this post focuses on the particular setting of Alberta towns. However, the dynamic that is described is the same everywhere across North America. The types of jobs, cultural nuances, and settings may vary. But the shift from fun, recreational use of alcohol or drugs to becoming a problem in your life can be the same regardless of where you call home. Living in boom towns like many of those in Alberta such as Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Grand Prairie, St. Albert, Fort McMurray, and Lloydminster offers many challenges for people who want to get sober. Many single people go to live and work in communities for the high wages offered by the oil and gas companies. Therefore, these single, often young people quickly find themselves in…

Addiction Recovery Fellowship

A Whole New Life   Crossing Over Through Addiction Recovery Fellowship Misery loves company. The same is true of addiction. Surrounding yourself with other people who are using and abusing substances and engaging in unhealthy behavior, creates more opportunity for denial; “I’m not as bad as those guys”. In contrast, addiction recovery fellowship fosters connection and healing. Many addicts fail to make progress in recovery because they are unable or unwilling to severe ties even when the relationships they’re in are unhealthy. They’re afraid of being judged by their current circle of friends, drinking buddies, fellow party-goes, business associates, customers, club or bar pals, and other enablers. When standing at the edge of a major change, it’s only natural to be afraid, whether of the unknown or of being lonely. This is why in the early stages of recovery, many alcoholics…

How Do I Know If I Need Rehab?

Do I Need Rehab

Is It Time For Rehab Yet?   Going to rehab can seem like a radical thing to do. It is one thing to admit we have a ‘bit of a problem’, but isn’t residential treatment only required for the most serious cases? Even if family or friends are advocating this type of help, we can still feel resistant to the idea – as well as resentful that it is being suggested at all. Subjectively determining our needs in regards to addiction treatment can be tricky, and there is a real risk that we will underestimate the amount of support and help that is required. If we were diagnosed with cancer, we would probably want the best treatment available, but subtle denial means we can fail to see how the same applies to an addiction (which is equally serious). We humans…

Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem Recovery

Seize The Day?   The popular Latin phrase Carpe Diem is usually translated as ‘seize the day’. Not that I am a Latin scholar, but I did find out that the translation of ‘Carpe’ is more literally ‘pluck’, mostly as in picking fruit. Carpe Diem then, is more accurately translated as ‘Enjoy the day, pluck the day when it is ripe’. What a difference! To seize is defined as ‘to take hold of suddenly or forcibly; grasp’. Sound familiar? This is how most people in active addiction live their lives, perpetually grappling with the Universe, then complaining about the goods. So, instead of Carpe Diem literally meaning ‘seizing the day’, we suggest that you try the new and improved “recovery” translation, living life on life’s terms, waiting for all things to come in their proper season, when they are best enjoyed.…

International Private Rehab in Panama – Taoist Teaching Story

Taoist Teaching Story

Alcoholism: Good Luck or Bad Luck?     A story often told at Serenity Vista international private rehab: There was an old farmer who worked hard on his little farm.
