Spoiler alert - the answers aren’t as black and white as we wished they would be.

How To Develop Proven Recovery Strategies
You will acquire practical recovery strategies to manage triggers, cravings, and stressors that can lead to relapse. You will learn how to depend on your faith for strength and resilience while also utilizing medication and therapeutic techniques to navigate challenging moments. This comprehensive approach empowers individuals to better handle the ups and downs of recovery.

Creating A Safe And Supportive Network
Attending the Stop Hiding Start Healing seminar will help you connect with others who are on a similar journey. You will learn the importance of building a strong support network that includes both faith-based communities and medical professionals.
