Into the Heart of Addiction

This recovery blog was born from a desire to give back to the sober community through creating an open forum resource with recovery and addiction information, where people with loved ones struggling with addiction can help one another. By utilizing specific categories, Into the Heart of Addiction strives to create a user-friendly recovery blog where it’s easier to reach what you want to read instead of spending valuable time navigating through difficult terrain to get where you need to go.

Want to be a guest writer for us?

Into the Heart of Addiction is only as strong as its writers and the stories they share. If you have experience with overcoming addiction or working with a family member who has, we would love to hear your story! Just contact us for more details.

Family

Family contains interviews/stories and addiction info that reveals the struggles, feelings and ways of dealing with loving a relative in recovery or still in active addiction. The goal of this section is to offer insight on recognizing the family disease of addiction and learning how to separate the addict from it with love and understanding.

Thought Provoking

Thought Provoking showcases New Life House and shares its thoughts on matters they have discovered while being in the recovery business for almost 30 years through 100% original content designed to get you thinking. Whether giving our opinion on local news involving a drug addict’s skirmish with the law, tackling the latest differences in drug treatment, trends in drug use, the benefits of drug testing or intervention, Into the Heart of Addiction writers supply you with original content on issues addiction blogs find interesting.

Addict Insight

Addict Insight contains interviews and stories directly from the mouths of youth in recovery. Here is where you will find what is going on in the mind and heart of young people who were addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, went through treatment and recovery, and are now living life one-day-at-a-time. They discuss their feelings, opinions, Alcoholics Anonymous, relationships in recovery and all the ingredients essential to living a happy and productive life.

Happy 6 years sober Clayton Rainey!

As I look back six years ago I remember how physically, spiritually, and mentally broken I was at 18 years old walking into New Life House. With no vision or a clue as to where my life was heading I learned to trust a group of people and something bigger than myself to guide me to a better and more peaceful life. I am forever grateful for what New Life has done for myself, my family, and everyones life I get to be a part of today. Thanks New Life for another shot at life.

A huge congratulations to Hayden H on 3 years sober!

Life is full and fulfilling. Each day I get to be present for and experience so many amazing things. My life is full of beautiful people and things, but the changed way of thought that God and AA has given me is more than I felt was possible. I feel so blessed to have been sober for 3 years. Thank you to New Life House, the men in my life, my family, AA, and last but not least, God.
