Recovery Connections

John Schwary is CEO of Transitional Living Communities, a 850-bed recovery program he founded in Mesa, Arizona January 9, 1992 when he had a year sober. He's in his 27th year of recovery.

In these posts, he views life mostly through the lenses of recovery. While the blog is factual, he sometimes disguises events and people to protect anonymity.

Home Again

Today my wife and I are in an airplane headed home. It's been a wonderful 12 day respite.  Relaxing on the beach and doing pretty much as we want during these lazy days has been refreshing.

Yet the important things we do with our life lie at home, facing our responsibilities. Here is where we find the joy in our lives.

It's a blessing to get away. But the real meaning comes from working with our mission of helping others.

There's nothing quite as beautiful as seeing a reluctant addict finally get the message. To finally begin living a life of freedom from the slavery of addiction.
