Fast fast fast. Everything is getting faster. Every day is getting faster. From the cell phones to cars, and from airports to restaurants, it’s all about speed these days. It seems planet earth has gotten itself in quite the hurry. It’s one thing to travel at the speed of light, but what about traveling at the speed of life? Constantly running around day after day while trying to keep up
Living in a world where we are distracted by the thrill of adventure but shun the very beauty of predictability, how is one to make the “right” decisions all of the time? Addicts have an incredible way of looking for their watered down version of the truth. They become content believing the preposterous images they conjure in their head, convincing themselves that they are rarely wrong. It’s truly amazing how
Chances are if you’re reading this, things for you or your loved one have finally blown up. Not a bomb, dynamite, or firecrackers, but the disease of alcoholic thinking. It may start off with a few innocent giggles, but before we know it all the horrors of life are catching up to us. Addiction is a fountain of gasoline while substances just end up being the never-ending book of matches.
Life: a giant conundrum of adjacent problems and solutions that we spend our entire span trying to sync them together. As long as we are not just some bump on a log hiding from the experience of life, there are infinite surprises to come across as we walk into the unknown. One thing for certain about the unforeseeable future is that the issues will never stop expanding. Life loves to
Addiction is a terrible, frightening mental illness that bullies its host in a manner like that of no other disease. It is one of the only diseases to exist that literally convinces the addict that it doesn’t exist. This may sound like a cop-out to some, but rest assured that anybody dealing with alcoholic thinking will be quite accustomed to irrationality. Eventually, for most of us addiction comes to a
The late great Dr. Seuss once wrote, “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” Wise words that are heeded far and few between. To love another human being is one thing, but to love yourself or life as it comes is a completely different territory. Loving reality is better than loving the figmented subconscious Mr. Sandman puts us into
Life is a pandora’s box full of natural surprises that none of us can truly predict. Some like to believe God has a purpose for them while doing for them what they cannot do for themselves. Others may hold onto the belief that destiny has already created its path and they are just pawns of fate in the game of life. Then there are some that convince themselves that life
It’s hard to remember that our lives are such a short time. We take waking up every day for granted and stroll through our lives without any existential fear- most of us at least. Some of us are devoted to religion often thinking about the afterlife, but even then we are living in a future tense. It’s tough trying to stay in the present and appreciate all that surrounds us
Turning on the news in today’s ever growing, ever showing world can be a traumatic event. With all the international turmoil and political anarchy occurring, it seems that everybody across the country is divided. Everybody is arguing about some cause or another and why their opinion is better than X, Y, and Z. Regardless of what channel you turn to or paper you pick up, there is some sort of
When we think of the future, we tend to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. At best we imagine a Disney like reality mixed with a Jetsons’ utopia. That’s not asking for too much considering the scientific and technological advances of mankind over the last couple centuries. Can you just picture it? With nearing 8 billion people on this planet the possibilities are astronomical. People like Benjamin
[Shelly Sprague] did an amazing job with [Seth Binzer] and he’s here and alive because of you, frankly. And that’s the truth. You took the punches and I appreciate it.

It’s truly been a miraculous journey for me and I remember how hopeless I felt during my early days of recovery at PRC. Bless you for all you do.
I am doing great, still sober. My wife now trusts me with my kids even alone…Life is much better today for me. I took a new role at my job that I absolutely love! I am grateful for PRC and the tools shown to me.
I learned more during last nights Family Program in the 1 hour and 45 minutes than I did in the 30 hours I spent at another Centers Family Program. If I knew then, what I know now we would have been at PRC first
