A Path to Recovery  (6113)

09/16/2013 9:00 AM - 09/20/2013 2:00 PM

CRC - Wellspring Structure House - At Wellspring at Structure House, they are a residential weight management facility, and they look at obesity as a chronic health problem…so the idea of “recovery” is a bit different than it might be with other addictions/disorders. 
To accommodate this, they are doing a campaign all week for patients to keep an eye out for any “moments of success” that they observe in other patients.  This might be walking from their apartment to the dining hall without stopping, being assertive in a
class, speaking up in support group, etc.  The Coordinator has made cards for them to record these “moments”, and the staff will collect them throughout the week, starting Monday.  Then, on Friday, they will do a ceremony wherein one of the coordinators will
read all cards out loud, and patients will be recognized for these moments of success.  They believe that recovery is about accruing these moments of success, so it’s a nice fit.
