Meridians Recovery

Meridians Recovery Jim Gross Meridians Recovery is proud to announce its grand opening on July 1st 2011 as a Recovery Community Organization, or (RCO). This program is ideal for those seeking a peer based residential recovery setting, clients discharging from treatment seeking entry to the recovery community, drug court assignment, court deferment, relapse prevention or reentry to the recovery community after relapse.

The goal of treatment has always been to facilitate the clients’ entry into a recovery life style. The best treatment outcomes have always been a result of lengthy stays in long term treatment, three months to a year. Not many people or their insurance companies can afford to pay these sky rocketing fees for services necessary to stave off relapse and gain solid footing in a recovery community of

Seems it is time to say goodbye to another brother. I loved you man. I cried for a couple months last time I lost one close to me. You are flying free.

You never wanted to know how to survive divorce.
You never wanted to know the joys and heartaches of autism.
You never wanted to know the signs of addiction.
But you do.
You never wanted to know rock bottom.
You never wanted to know how to leave an abusive relationship.
You never wanted to know it was possible to bounce back after a financial crisis.
But you do.
You never wanted to know the pain of caring for a parent who doesn’t remember you.
You never wanted to be the strong one.
You never wanted to know the car could be a safe place to cry.
But you do.
You never wanted to know a family could break.
You never wanted to know how to put the pieces back together in a new way.
You never wanted to know a new normal.
But you do.
You never wanted to know the ideal response when someone stares at your child.
You never wanted to know the courage it takes to ask for help.
You never wanted to know how to find joy after having lost it for so long.
But you do.
You never wanted to know it’s sometimes necessary to sever ties in order to have inner peace.
You never wanted to know how hard it is to say to yourself, “Change begins today. My loved ones deserve better.”
You never wanted to know the weight that’s lifted when you say to yourself, “It wasn’t my fault.”
But you do. You do.
Perhaps as time has passed, you’ve discovered that to deny your story hurts more than the story itself, so you’ve chosen to own it.
To speak out, even when your voice shakes.
To tell the truth, even when it’s not pretty.
To encourage someone else, even when you can barely encourage yourself.
To get up and face the world, even when you can barely look in the mirror.
The tears that streak your face at the most inopportune times of the day, at the most inappropriate moments, are the lines of your story. Each time you own them, someone else is not alone in his or her story. Your jumbled mess, whether whispered as a prayer to one or shouted in desperation to thousands, could be the message someone needs right now. And perhaps by sharing, your pain will have an unexpected purpose.
Although you never wanted to own this hard story, it could grow unexpectedly beautiful on you.

Good morning everyone. It has been with reluctance that we finally announce that our 2020 Run for Recovery fundraiser has been postponed till 2021. The Algonkian Regional Park space has already been reserved for next year and we are in the process of contacting our sponsors and supporters. Thank you everyone and please pray for those with addictions as they often struggle in silence during times of great stress.

Good morning everybody. I have been away with family needs for the last few months. Lets get to the news. We have not been able to find someone that would rent a house to us for the women in recovery. Boy I thought everyone was aware of the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Anyway, it looks like I will buy a house this Spring which will go into a trust with an interest free buyout by Meridians Recovery. This will become the women's forever home. The proceeds from the fundraisers will go towards laying back the trust. The fundraiser for this year is Saturday, September 26th, 2020. Soon as the current family stuff settles out we will change the registration page on our website and create an open fundraiser here on FB. We are looking to sign up our first sponsor for 2020 this coming Thursday.

Neuroscience Reveals How Gratitude Literally Rewires Your Brain to be Happier

Neuroscientists have found that if you really feel it when you say it, you'll be happier and healthier. The regular practice of expressing gratitude is not a New Age fad; it's a facet of the human condition that reaps true benefits to those who mean it.

When I first got to recovery I was willing to settle for just no more problems related to my addictions. If that was all I got, I would have missed out on the abundance I have received.

The neuronal changes in cell structures within the frontal lobe, nucleus acumbens, and dopamine reward center are all part of the brain disease that happens with addiction. This affects judgement, behavior and decision making - executive function. Limited stress management abilities and compulsion are the end result. Addiction becomes our rapacious creditor availed in a maidens dress.

Meridians Recovery would like to graciously thank the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors for granting exempt status from real property tax for our non-profit. Some organizations, while providing a valuable service within Loudoun County, operate on a shoe string budget, and often at a loss. Even a savings of less than $1,000 can make the difference between paying a critical bill, like insurance, and having to go without coverage. Sincerely, Executive Director, Jim Gross

Addiction now defined as brain disorder, not behavior issue

Addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavior problem involving alcohol, drugs, gambling or s*x, experts contend in a new definition of addiction, one that is not solely related to problematic substance abuse.
