It’s the assumption that treatment agencies owe Portsmouth. And this completely disregards and minimizes the positive things treatment centers bring to this community; what the recovery community brings to Portsmouth.
The Counseling Center has a history of keeping supportive environments for recovery at the forefront of its strategic plan. TCC has been providing safe, supervised housing for our clients while in treatment since the mid-’90s.
The creative process is not just found on a canvas, it is an endless list: found in cooking, singing alone in your car, in lifting weights, how we solve problems, arranging flowers, playing an instrument, dancing, and in tending to a garden.
In life and recovery, many times, things don't always go as we hoped. Being able to see trouble before it happens and being able to adjust your plans to place yourself in the best situation is a must for sustaining recovery.
But with all that being said, that’s all it takes: a person and the substance. Nothing has to “cause” the disorder – it can present by itself.
