Adopting Modern Day Healing Modalities into 12 Step Recovery

Welcome to In The Circle. Thank you for being here today. In this episode, we check in with Jeanne, a member of our Recovery 2.0 community. She shares about how the 12-steps will always be the foundation of her recovery, but that after a while she felt called to explore alternative paths of healing. 

What starts as a question about adopting modern day healing modalities into 12-step recovery turns into a powerful look at what is broken about our approach to recovery in America and what we can do about it. 

We take a hard look at some of the problems with the decision to treat addiction with drugs. There are so many options, and it is certainly my prayer that people will explore all the avenues that lead to health and wellness. I advocate for yoga, breath work, athletics, healthy diet, time in community, lots of time in nature, and of course, I think people should get naturally high every single day.

We want to thank Jeanne today for asking this question and bringing so much to the table that we can explore. It’s absolutely critical that we take stock of why we do what we do, especially when it comes to our decisions about healthcare and the wellbeing of all people.

We’re all works in progress.
