The Power of Fellowships and Higher Power in Addiction Recovery
With an illness that is focused within the mind, you don't want to have just your one mind to work on the issue.
In the latest episode of Courage Recovery, addiction educator Roger L'Hereault discusses the importance of seeking support and guidance in addiction recovery. While it's possible for some people to recover on their own, the odds of success are much greater with the help of others. Fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous provide a sense of community, accountability, and reality-checking that can be crucial for sustained recovery.
But what about the higher power concept that is often associated with these fellowships? L'Hereault explains that a higher power doesn't have to be tied to any religion or even be a traditional deity. Rather, it's about seeking guidance outside of oneself and tapping into deeper wisdom and spirituality. By separating oneself from limiting thoughts and the ego, a higher power can help fill the spiritual void left by addiction and provide a regular humility reality check.
L'Hereault encourages listeners to explore different types of fellowships and higher powers to find what works best for them. If you're struggling with addiction or know someone who is, listen to this inspiring and informative episode now on alcoholfree.com.
