You Are Not Alone in Addiction Recovery
I remember when I first came across the HealthyPlace blog site. I was about three months into living a whole new life, alcohol-free, and feeling alone. I was working as a Case Manager, juggling two classes for my Master's program while trying to enjoy the beauty Hawaii has to offer. In other words, I kept myself very distracted and away from any temptation to drink.
I found HealthyPlace while searching for a platform to help me feel less alone with my reasons for sobriety. I have a large circle of close family and friends who have provided me with love and support, yet I still felt misunderstood. HealthyPlace has given me the comfort and understanding I needed all along. Once I began reading other people's stories and experiences, I knew I was never alone in addiction recovery or with my mental health issues.
Community Keeps You from Being Alone in Addiction Recovery

My ultimate purpose with this blog and sharing my honest experience with alcohol abuse and mental health issues is to provide a safe space for others similar to me to feel less alone. I encourage you to speak about your struggles with friends, family, a therapist, a stranger, or even myself because community and conversation are another way to heal your wounds and progress in your addiction recovery journey.
