Decisions - “My own decisions were wrong, selfish, or for my own pleasure.” - Fr. Paul – March 4, 2009.

From the time we were babies God put in our lives the people that would love us, care for us, know how to care for us and be there for us. Being alcoholic, as we got older, we chose who we wanted to be near, who we wanted to listen to, who meant anything in our lives. This is a serious part of our lives. The people you and I need and the people that need you in their life are either out there or here and we need to believe that and allow it to happen. Look at how many times we were so wrapped up in self that we never heard anything, nothing penetrated, and nothing changed. The opportunities continue where something or someone hits us with that change of heart that takes place in us.

In recovery there is a change of attitude and heart. There is freedom, peace, and gratitude. Every day there can be some growth, some change of heart, and a special feeling of gratitude, joy, and hope.

My commitment today is honesty with myself.

Opportunities “We have an opportunity to start repairing some of the damages.” Don Russell – Feb. 12, 2010.

The alcoholic had so many missed opportunities and if they are not dealt with in recovery they can run into self-pity. God gave us a family and now in recovery we have the opportunity to really appreciate them with love, joy and comfort. We can get grounded when our children and family evolve. They are not mad at each other or us. We are not blaming them and they are not blaming us. These are the opportunities that can make us happy. We thank God for the help we got at Brentwood. We had good friends in recovery. When we followed the steps of ask, listen, do as you’re told, got direction, and followed direction, it all worked out. We are putting action into our program and recovery is an action program.

My commitment today is to start repairing any damages in my life.

Priorities - “We need to get the program right and make people a priority.” Fr. Paul – June 4, 2008.

In our disease we were always the center of everything. We lived our lives with extremes. Either we liked something or we hated it! We drank to the extreme. Instead of going home we would rather get drunk. Our anger and fears were extreme also. Our likes and dislikes were always extreme. When we come into recovery extremes are the norm. You have to ask, listen, and do as you are told! Recovery is an extreme makeover. Instead of you being your priority, your program is now your priority. We start to live a normal life with happiness, hope, and people having Brentwood and all the proper priorities in our lives. We are no longer the priority. Alcoholism is a disease with extremes with us at the center of it and now the people who God puts into my life have to be the priority.

My commitment today is to make the people in my life a priority!

Brentwood Recovery Home. Recovery starts here.


Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!
