About this Blog

I want to use this site as a place for those struggling with substance abuse, or work in the field of substance abuse, to come and visit and learn and challenge. This will also be a place for anyone to come and visit ideas about life in general, and how we can better ourselves through self-reflection, self-empowerment and relationship.

We will explore many facets of human existence.  Addiction cuts across all race, socioeconomic status, and culture.  It also bumps up against all the major existential themes, many of which we will look into.  Subjects such as death, freedom, responsibility, authenticity, and finding meaning and purpose.

We will also explore the psychodynamics of the individual and how systems can often perpetuate maladaptive ways of coping.

    Hello there. I am thoroughly enjoying your website! I honestly believe you have touched an area of addiction that most stay away from. I came across your website in my quest to find a more truthful approach to addiction. With this find, I know I am on the right track. What are your thoughts on “forgiveness” and its relation to addiction?

    I am being interviewed, a few days from now, for an addictions counsellor position. I will be using your concepts of “compassion,” “connection”, “pain” and “self-esteem,” correlated with my own opinions on this matter.

    Keep up the good work!
