The Four Agreements are Crucial in Helping with Addiction Recovery
At Benchmark Recovery Center, we use a book called The Four Agreements, written by Don Miguel Ruiz. We feel this book embodies some of the most important principles necessary for quality recovery and healthy relationships.
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid speaking derogatorily against yourself and gossiping about others. Use the power of words only in the direction of truth and love.
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t suffer needlessly.
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstances, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
Regardless of whether you have attended alcohol treatment or drug treatment before, the Benchmark program of extended care will take you to a higher level of recovery.
If you or someone you love are in need of drug or alcohol rehabilitation then please get in touch with us now.
