Live More Recovery

Recovery and Beyond

Live More Recovery provides SOLUTION focused services for individuals and families who have a desire to find, share and live more fully within their individual recovery paths.

We purposely have designed our services to be welcoming to any person regardless of their "obsession". We have found that the principles of recovery including 12 steps, empathy, connection, open-mindedness, and self-compassion are common solutions to complex problems. It is our goal to focus on solution rather than the problem.

At Live More Recovery you will find individuals who have realized that merely removing the "problem" from their life did not equate to "living fully". While the goal to "fix a loved one" or overcome an obsession with drugs, alcohol, food, gambling etc., may be enough for some, individuals at Live More Recovery desire to advance beyond the problem. By doing so, they continue to grow and serve each other, their families, community and higher powers in ways that are healthy and meaningful.

As a wise person once said "If we aren't growing, we're going". Once "recovered", we believe the process can be a fun fulfilling journey that lasts a lifetime! If you need recovery, are bored/stagnant or seeking to take your recovery to the next level, Live More Recovery might be for you.

Live More Recovery offers counseling, coaching, support meetings and professional intervention services. Scroll down to learn more.

Group meetings are self sustaining. We pass the hat.

Your personal anonymity is up to you. We believe it is your right to share anything you want about YOU with the world. We believe sharing with others opens the door to hope for those still suffering and encourage sharing your recovery story as you feel called to do so. Confidentiality is another matter. As a group we want to protect your privacy. Our members agree that who we see here and what we hear here, stays here. This is a safe place.

Recovery Starts Where You Are And Goes Where You Take It!

Staying Safe & Healthy

Recently I received an email from my doctor listing their holiday hours. On the bottom was this little "Oh by the way" type filler which I'm sure most people wouldn't even scroll down to. (I did because I'm learning about social networking etc.). When I read this I thought the patients might have been better served placing this information first followed by holiday hours. I mean, this is good helpful stuff! Yes, much is common sense but always a good reminder. Flu and cold season, holidays, stress, finances. etc. This is a relapse trigger time of year! Apparently even the CDC knows our vulnerabilities! Taking care of the simple things can help prevent a lot of BIG things. Click on this for some helpful steps to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
