Recovery Happens is committed to serving those effected by drug and substance abuse, along with their family system, in order to bring sustainable change to those suffering from addiction.
A person under the influence of mood altering substances has an impaired ability to make healthy decisions and their brain chemistry is being altered.
After a relationship with drugs or alcohol has developed, the ability to identify, express, and cope with emotions is damaged and emotions become numbed and distorted.
Addiction is a primary, chronic, progressive disease that has its roots in genetics, brain chemistry and attachment.
Substance abuse crosses the lines of gender, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, and spiritual and religious beliefs.
Family members and others close to a person who is abusing chemicals are affected by the use and the consequences of that use.
Essential elements of recovery are lifestyle change and support.
