The Cobain Legacy: Music and Sobriety
We commend Frances Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain on her 2nd sober birthday. The impact of family hurts not only parents but also children, and the difficulties to overcome alcohol and drug use can become challenging given the social system reintegration and reliving trauma through the developmental stages that psychologically can become stagnant or thwarted in sobriety.
Sober living seems to have had an impact to extend her sobriety and the longer the supervision or support in earlier recovery the easier it is to attend the recovery needs. We salute the support she has received, the public comments and responsibility and inspiration to those wishing a life of joy after stopping addiction and alcoholism.
At By The Sea Recovery we want to remind society and the community at large of the importance of sober housing after addiction treatment and its positive impact on society as well as overall reduced costs. Congratulations Frances!
What used to be a hush hush etiquette of alcohol and drug recovery is now the proud boasting of overcoming a human challenge that is inspiring many and changing the rhetoric of addiction to one of substance use disorders with so many opportunities for help, change and true transformations. We salute you Sia for sharing the hope and joy of recovery and as people in recovery, thank you for making the movement of recovery to one of public, understanding and positive help, we can change the epidemic to one of finding prevention and solutions for such a global problem.
Eminem Shares Previous Struggle With Drugs That Pushed Him To 230 Pounds : LIFE : Tech Times
The brave rapper and entertainer Eminem opens up abut his demons, difficulties and journey to health. We commend this talented artist that could inspire the over 22 million people in recovery from substance use disorders in the United States. We forget it affects everyone no matter our backgrounds, but that the vulnerability and honesty of this amazing artist can bring life to those not seeing beyond the haze of today. Thank you Eminem.
A brave soul to come out and share her hope and message about recovery against the overwhelming resistance of stigma, anonymity and continued belief of early efforts to curtail use through abstinence. Not only are these celebrities saving lives, but changing the way we see addiction: from a dark connotation to an understanding of a serious disease affecting the brain and body. As our assessment to treat this disease changes, so does our vocabulary and our perception to a much more clearer manner to attend the population's questions, worries and concerns. Thank you Stevie Nicks, you are the beginning of a wave that is sharing light to a misunderstood epidemic. There is a solution.
