October 1st will be Eric’s one-year sober, and he has been living at the Haven sober living since November 15th 2015. He moved into The Haven after being in residential treatment for 2 months. At the time he completed treatment he wasn’t sure where he was going to go next, it just needed to be a safe and sober environment. He called up The Haven, and they let him move in paying just half the cost of rent so he could have that safe and sober place to go. The Haven sober living has been a vital cornerstone for his recovery, and has brought so much into his life the past eleven and a half months.
More than 24.6 million people in the United States are addicted to drug and/ or alcohol. That is about one in every 10 Americans over the age of 12. The fact is that even pre-teens struggle with drug and alcohol abuse and the numbers are only increasing each year. This can be a tough topic for families to tackle, but you don’t have to wait until it’s too late to start the conversation.

Most people in our society today do not prefer labels, probably because our culture is constantly changing and not very big on commitments of any kind. And when it comes to negative labels, our society avoids them like the plague.
Smoking cigarettes, like eating unhealthy foods, and buying things outside our budgets are often impulsive choices, ones we make again and again, all while knowing in the broad sense that they are bad for us. So to understand why strategies to combat them so often fail, we have to first consider how impulsivity interferes with learning and influences our decision-making.
