We Do Recover

The term “Straight” is commonly used as slang to describe a state of sobriety or a lifestyle free from narcotic substances. This term encapsulates not just the absence of substance use, but also a commitment to a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Recovery from addiction and mental health disorders is a journey that is as unique and personal as the individuals undertaking it. The path to recovery is rarely a straight line; it is marked by its twists and turns, challenges, and setbacks. Yet, every journey offers hope, a sentiment echoed by millions who have navigated this path before.

One of the important aspects of recovery is understanding that setbacks are a part of the process. These setbacks, often referred to as “relapses,” are not indicators of failure but are, instead, part of the complex journey towards healing. A relapse in the context of substance use disorders or behavioral disorders like eating disorders signifies a return to previous harmful behaviors or substance use. In mental health treatment, it might involve challenges like struggling with medication adherence or emotional regulation.

It’s important to recognize that recovery is not a one-time event but an ongoing process. The road to overcoming addiction is filled with both achievements and obstacles. When setbacks occur, they do not negate the progress made. It’s vital for both the individual in recovery and their loved ones to focus on the positive strides made, offering support, love, and encouragement through the ups and downs.

The term “Straight” gained some notoriety in the 1980s with the controversial Straight Incorporated program, yet it has outlived this specific association. In the broader addiction recovery community, being “Straight” has become a way for individuals to affirm their drug-free status. It signifies a break from the past, a triumph over addiction, and a pledge to maintain a sober lifestyle.
