How Work Addiction Could Be Hurting Your Career Without Your Knowledge
There are many faces of work addiction, and sometimes it’s hard to detect. All work addicts work too much, but not all act alike. Some are too careless, others too ploddingly scrupulous. Some can’t get started; others plunge in on a dozen projects and finish little. The end result of these differing work styles may look the same from the outside—an unbalanced life dominated by long hours at the office—but each face expresses a different set of emotional vulnerabilities.

Maturity and Recovery
By Alan Henley
“Know the truth and the truth will set you free- but first it will really piss you off”. I’m not sure where that saying comes from, but it has been my experience. One of the many hard truths that my sponsor shared with me over the years is the fact that real recovery is largely about true inner maturity. I didn’t want to hear this because, first, I didn’t want to hear the truth that I was immature, and second, I did not want to grow up.

At SRC we talk about elephants...a lot
Let's talk about the elephant in the room.
At Springs Recovery Connection we aren't afraid to talk about substance use disorder. We talk about what it feels like to hit bottom and the transformation that happens when we recover.

By giving today you help us continue the conversation about the elephant in the room.

SRC Impact: Healing our Community through work with families

Recovery Hero: Angie Neeley
My name is Angie Neeley and I am a woman in long term recovery. For me, that means several things: I haven’t had any alcohol or drugs that weren’t prescribed to me since October 5, 1988 and I have an opportunity to give back that which has been freely given to me.
My proudest accomplishment is completing my bachelor’s degree in 2012 that was begun in 1979(when I began my drinking.) It’s amazing how enjoyable learning can be when I’m not drunk or hungover.
