Boost Your Energy with a Spring Cleanse

When gentle spring breezes start to blow, it's time for spring cleaning — not only for your house but for your body, too!

Toxins tend to accumulate all year round, due to improper digestion and high levels of stress—not to mention the chemicals in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the foods we eat.

Taking Responsibility for Recovery

One of the common thoughts people have about the Law of Attraction in recovery is that it is a passive type of process.
