Making the Most of Quiet Moments
Being in the present moment is a life skill for overcoming addiction. Alan, who has successfully been living in our recovery housing, has used his ability to focus on what he's doing in the moment to create complex, beautiful items out of Popsicle sticks. He makes an assortment of items—lamps, boxes, etc.
Dave Lussier, Residential Team Manager, told us, "Alan says he makes these to promote present moment awareness, which he learned in treatment."
Alan is an inspiration to all of us who may have more time on our hands during these days of isolation to make time to enjoy the present and create something beautiful.
