July Newsletter


addiction treatment and drug and alcohol rehabAddiction Recovery Newsletter

Thank you for reading our newsletter, keeping you informed of the latest addiction recovery news.

Last Door Recovery Societies Addiction Recovery Newsletter is an invaluable resource for those seeking help with addiction. It offers helpful information on various topics related to recovery, such as relapse prevention, healthy lifestyle tips, and available support services in the community. This newsletter also features stories from people who have gone through the recovery process themselves providing valuable insight and inspiration to those currently struggling with substance use disorders. By highlighting both local events and national initiatives that are dedicated to helping individuals in their journey toward sobriety, Last Doors Addiction Recovery Newsletter provides a much needed sense of connection between those affected by addiction and their peers.

Alumni of the Month

I had no idea how to deal with my emotions and I masked my feelings with humour and lies. As soon as I was able and capable to think for myself I became confused, angry and constantly in a state of internal conflict. Even I became to question my behaviour and treatment of others as I came across arrogant and rude. Instead of committing to understanding who I was, I became the person I thought others wanted me to be. Being a chameleon in order to gain acceptance and gratification. I based daily and important life decisions on impulsive emotions and had little idea how to discern right from wrong. Read the rest of my story by clicking here
