Throughout your recovery journey, you may have to reopen old wounds to process and understand them. Talking about your traumas and their effects on you and learning tools to manage your substance use symptoms will create a framework for building a healthy, sober life.
The steps of healing may be different for everyone. As a rule of thumb, healing has been organized into five stages, much like grief. However, some people may skip steps, add steps, or have an entirely different process altogether. The typical stages of healing include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
People in your life may process trauma at a different rate from you and one another. Some people in your life may be more willing to make amends depending on where they are in their own healing process. While some people are willing to talk about their trauma, others are not, so it is important to respect whatever decision a person makes in regards to sharing. There are a number of techniques and activities that promote healing, so if you are struggling to heal the wounds in your relationships, talk to a mental health professional about tools you can use that can help you heal.
When you go to physical therapy to strengthen your muscles caused by an injury, you still need to practice those exercises to keep your muscles strong once the physical therapy treatment ends. Substance use is the same; your work is not over when treatment ends. Treatment is only a jumpstart to your recovery journey. You need to continue to seek to grow your support network, learn new tools for emotional management, and strive to change your habits and routines. Post-rehab, you should continue to see a mental health professional and participate in outpatient treatment.
Even when you feel good about yourself and where you are in your life, continuing to practice emotional management with a mental health professional will strengthen your emotional management skills for when you may need them. Support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Self-management and Recovery Training (SMART) can help you build your support network and allow you to continue participating in the recovery community.
Aftercare can also include sober living housing where you live in a community with other people who are also going through the recovery process. Living in a community surrounded by people who may share similar experiences will give you immediate access to a support network while you learn the necessary skills to live independently outside of the sober living community.
Objectives: To evaluate emotional and physical recovery after bypass surgery and investigate associations between depressive symptoms and infections and impaired wound healing in patients with high and low levels of depressive symptoms.
Methods: A nonrandomized, comparative, longitudinal design was used to study 72 bypass surgery patients without serious noncardiac comorbidities who were available for follow-up after discharge. Patients completed questionnaires to assess depressive symptoms, emotional recovery, and physical recovery within 48 hours after extubation, at discharge from the hospital, and 6 weeks later and performed 6-minute walk tests at the last 2 times. Infections and impaired wound healing (as indicated by positive cultures, antibiotic treatment, or extra treatments, such as debridements or incisions and drainage) were identified by chart audit.
The Alma Center works to heal, transform and evolve the unresolved pain of trauma that fuels the continuation of cycles of violence, abuse and dysfunction in families and community. The Alma Center works primarily with men at-risk or involved in the criminal justice system, with a particular focus on men who have a history of domestic violence. Their vision is that healing-focused care becomes a leading approach for re-imagining the criminal justice system, particularly in regards to intervention and prevention of family violence, and moves the system toward more restorative and effective models.
The Alma Center works locally and nationally to provide pioneering trauma-informed healing, education, supportive services and a positive peer community to promote lifestyle transformation for men and to break the cycle of domestic violence in families.
Do others see you as someone who has it all together? Inside, are you feeling like you're falling apart? Do feelings of emptiness consume you? For many people suffering with emotional wounds, anxiety, isolation and hopelessness can become a daily part of life. Sometimes managing painful times from the past intrude on their ability to enjoy the present. Sometimes compulsive eating patterns, substance abuse, spending or even relationships seem like the only way to numb the pain. You don't have to face it alone. We can work together to find new solutions for wellness, healing and recovery. Our approach focuses on developing a safe, collaborative relationship where new insights and change is possible. Together we can discover healthy ways to cope with difficult feelings and break the cycles that are preventing you from living the life you want. You CAN find a newfound sense of fulfillment, peace and well-being. Through counseling, psychotherapy and expressive arts therapy we specialize in offering hope to families in Mercer, Bucks, Hunterdon and Somerset counties struggling with the effects of trauma (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety, addiction and LGBT concerns.
Drawing on the theory of therapeutic landscapes, this paper examines the importance of place for shaping health and healing among breast cancer survivors. Semi-structured in-depth interviews were conducted with 14 women in the Greater Toronto Area at various stages of breast cancer recovery to examine where and how they access and create landscapes of healing. The interviews revealed the importance of everyday and extraordinary therapeutic landscapes that are created in bodies and homes, as well as the broader community and nature. Those landscapes with which women interact on an everyday basis appear to be most important for physical and psychological healing. In addition, the research suggests a strong interplay between emotions and place such that emotional geographies, which appear to be embedded within places of healing, play an important role in shaping and maintaining therapeutic landscapes. Further research is needed to understand the place of emotions in creating therapeutic landscapes, particularly for those populations most in need of healing.

How do you handle crisis in your life? Where do you seek refuge in troubling times? When great challenges arise and emotional overwhelm sets in, are there spiritual tools and healing techniques you can use to diminish the pain and suffering? In this collection of audio lectures, Dr. David Hawkins teaches us how to recognize our inner power, realize the divinity within ourselves, and live our lives as a prayer.
This, the eighth installment in a progressive series based on the revelations of consciousness research, resulted from a group of lectures given by the author at the request of the original publisher of A Course in Miracles, along with members of several self-help groups, including Alcoholics Anonymous, ACIM, Attitudinal Healing Centers, other recovery groups, and a number of clinicians.
In this audiobook, you will learn why the body may not respond to traditional medical approaches.

Mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) for children in conflict is essential to overcome the impact of toxic stress and gives children the chance to develop to their full potential. Integrating MHPSS programming into the existing structures that support and protect children, such as educational systems, is essential to ensure children can access opportunities for healing, recovery and learning at larger scale. Education, delivered in safe, nurturing environments, is critically protective for children in conflict, and has the potential to support their healing and recovery.
There are practical actions all countries can take to provide the help that children affected by conflict need to make a full recovery. This must include ensuring there is the mental health support on the ground to help children recover both in the immediate aftermath, and through the crucial months afterwards.
