We have a very structured group that follows a format of four basic steps: report an upset, describe thoughts, impulses, feelings and sensations. If you can’t change a situation, you can change your attitude toward it. Life can be distressing, but not dangerous. Recovery is helpful for handling addictions, fears, anxiety, anger, loneliness, worries and any challenge. Try it for six weeks. For more information, call MaryAnn 884-0215.
