Putting down the substance is only the first step in recovery. When you stop drinking or using, all the feelings you were numbing with substances suddenly come flooding back. Not only that, but you’re likely facing a litany of consequences – broken relationships, lost jobs, financial troubles, legal issues, health issues, and more – that are anxiety provoking in and of themselves.
Most of us are simply not equipped to deal with these challenges on our own, so it’s no surprise that when we refuse to reach out for help and try to go it alone, we stumble.
Our programming is catered to men and women who are new in recovery, as well as those with longer-term sobriety who are struggling to gain traction. 2nd Opportunity isn’t a substitute for a treatment center or 12-step recovery program; rather, we pick up where they leave off by building your self-efficacy and coping skills while empowering you to improve your life.
Whether you believe it yet or not, you already have the inherent abilities and talent you need to create the kind of life you want and deserve. We’re just here to be your guide, helping you build (or rebuild) your confidence, providing resources and referrals to get you back on your feet, and arming you with the skills and tools you need to start down a positive new path and weather the twists and turns.
