Living with addiction and family dysfunction are unmanageable. Without recovery, we often have no peace and no solutions to restore family harmony. Recovery brings peace to hopeless situations. While many find this peace an hour at a time in meetings or counseling, ROR's new recovery activity book lets them find peace at home and on the go. Here are just a few of our favorite pages:
Who Needs This Activity Book?
Approximately 23 million Americans are in some form of recovery, and this is tremendous news. Millions of Americans are not drinking and drugging when they used to. Millions of Americans are finding peace, healthy ways to communicate, and solve problems.
Unfortunately, only one out of 10 people who need recovery have found it, and they need tools to make their recovery stronger. The other 9 out of 10 need to see what they CAN DO in recovery instead of what they can't.
Families Need Recovery Too
"Recovery isn't a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play." Addiction is a family disease that affects generations long after the substance abuse has stopped. When one member of the family suffers, everyone hurts. Recovery is also for the husbands, wives, children, parents, siblings, partners, grandparents, and friends. This activity book helps translate the new recovery lifestyle into terms the entire family can understand. We call this recovery literacy.
Bringing cultural change to our communities so people can understand, find peace, and yes, experience the fun of recovery is imperative. How do we further this message? We provide new messages and tools using techniques that work.
What Actually Works In Recovery?
Most treatment programs include 12 step principles in group settings and journaling for self awareness. Many programs also include coloring pleasant scenes or mandalas for peace and serenity.
ROR blended all three tools together in an activity book like no other. Find Your True Colors in 12 Steps has 51 gorgeous pages to color, the 12 steps in simple terms to promote deeper understanding, and 17 writing prompts with pages for journaling.
Why Add Art Therapy?
“According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem." So basically, it's similar to good old therapy. Yet art therapy is not only about learning and improving yourself — it's a means of personal expression, too."
Hence, this activity book combines art and recovery tools to solidify recovery.
