Local Artist Shares his Recovery Story thru Music

I was recently contacted by an inspiring man who shares his journey of recovery through his music. I just listened to one of his songs and it was beautiful and inspiring. Please enjoy Scott Plante’s song; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hsNRlfRuoY&feature=youtu.be

If you love it, share it with your friends in and out of recovery.

We are in the midst of the worst drug addiction epidemic in United States history.

The epidemic is having a catastrophic impact on families and communities and is placing tremendous strain on our health care system, businesses, and local and state governments.

The mission of The FED UP! Coalition is to create one voice calling for an end to the epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths attributed to opioids (including heroin) and other prescription drugs.

The FED UP! Coalition is working to find ways to:

  • Prevent our children, friends, and loved ones from becoming addicted to opioids
  • Ensure that people suffering from opioid addiction have access to affordable, evidence-based treatment
  • Support and enable recovery
  • Eliminate opioid overdose deaths.

Empathy Practice Group at Safe Harbor

Empathy Practice Group is held on Thursdays at 9:30am – 11am at Safe Harbor in Portsmouth:

Learn to Connect To Yourself And Others

“The ability to connect with self and relate to others is the force that moves recovery forward” – and it can be learned!

Using the Connection Practice in Recovery:

• resolves and prevents conflict by increasing rapport and understanding
• taps into your best intelligence for creative problem solving
• creates a heightened sense of belonging, decreasing relapse
• develops greater self-confidence and resilience
• accelerates healing and self-forgiveness, cutting through resistance to change

How the Connection Practice Works:

Combining empathy and insight increases your ability to skillfully respond to whatever comes up in your life.
– Empathy is attained through a conscious connection to your feelings and needs and those of others at any given moment.
– Insight is accessed through heart-brain coherence, which is when the heart, mind and emotions are in sync with one another. Through coherence the reactions of the amygdala (the center of emotional memories in the brain) are reduced and you think more clearly.
