“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” ~Maya Angelou
Great Bear Recovery Collective is a network of people in recovery in Juneau, Alaska who want to make a change in our community. In our city drug and alcohol use running out of control. Together we seek to provide an intelligent response to this crisis. We have lived experience, and we recognize what the path to recovery takes. It takes compassion and understanding. Therefore by using these tools, we can help someone succeed in their fight against substance use disorder.
Why it Works
People in recovery need to learn how to have fun again. Boredom can be a recovery killer. That’s why it is important to engage in healthy pleasures and experiences. Because practicing activities that help our minds find balance might make the difference between the road to recovery or the road to continued relapse.
