An Ignatian, Recovery Weekend Retreat for Women
Emotional Sobriety can be described as living a balanced life; to have the ability to deal with life, its joys and struggles, in a healthy manner. When individuals become addicted to, or are in relationship with those addicted to alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy behaviors or substances, emotional growth is halted. When recovery begins they can once again focus on their own emotional growth receiving a deep inner strength that they can rely upon. Emotional Sobriety is closely linked to serenity, which is an unshakable sense of inner peace that people find in recovery. During this weekend we will look at the Signs of Emotional Sobriety and their relationship to the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
