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
Taking a look at the general timeline of our physical vessel, we know for certain that we were born and we know for certain that one day we will die. Nobody is quite sure of what goes on in between. Everybody’s reality is different while everybody’s perception follows suit. We all have comparable journeys that are completely dissimilar at the end of the day. Nothing is guaranteed and everything is
The future contains so many hidden mysteries. Hopefully looking into your crystal ball like Ms. Cleo will provide a future full happiness, joy, and recovery. Most of us enter sobriety after putting ourselves through a beating that comes only from ingesting a slew of substances. This takes us down a path of powerlessness and unmanageability where eventually life or death must be chosen. Ultimately, those of us that are lucky,
The chances of you reading this article and having known somebody close or even having known a friend of somebody close that has overdosed from some form of opiates- is more than likely. The drug epidemic in this country is an ever growing problem that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, but this “war on drugs” is just one of the problems addicts and alcoholics are now dealing
Dear friends of PRC: We are all Houston right now. When disasters like Hurricane Harvey hit, we must come together as a community and offer not only our thoughts and prayers, but our financial support and available resources to help those in need. The Pasadena Recovery Center family is opening our doors for donations of clothes and hard materials that we’ll be shipping to Houston over the next few weeks.
Should we be so lucky for circumstance to provide us in a scenario where we are sitting in a comfy leather chair reading a crisp brand new book or watching an exhilarating movie, we would find that no matter how gripping the material- our minds are always wandering elsewhere. It’s just part of human nature; either that or it’s just a sign of how we’re just trying to keep up
Goldilocks. Little Red Riding Hood. A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. The Tortoise and the Hare. Hopefully, we were all fortunate enough at some point to listen thru such childhood hearings and tales of the like. The moral of the story often hidden within really glues itself to the fabric of our adult lives and so on as our timeline continues to develop. Some stories there is a protagonist and antagonist
Being the best you that you can be is tough when the odds are stacked against you. Plain and simple: life isn’t fair- but you knew that already. Then again, what is fair? Fair isn’t about everybody having the same thing, but more so having what you need to get by- that’s fair. Everybody’s advantages and disadvantages in life will vary person to person, but the things we can do
We all enter the rooms of recovery in one way or another usually in part to us not being able to catch up with life anymore, or vice-versa. The chemical showers of powders and liquors eventually drive us all to a dark place. The powerlessness and unmanageability will take a firm grip on your souls- leaving you with limited options for peace of mind. Once this is to become the
All of us have been here at some point: You’re running errands or walking about and a string of words poetically recorded in synchronization to instrumental echoes flutter thru the breeze and into your head. In one ear and out the other, music leaves this immutable trace of its presence in all forms of its wake. The beautiful thing about it is that despite your listening tastes, there is a
[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.

Shelly the Shark, she always has the answers to everything. I want to thank you for being so tough on me

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
