Work Projects and Recovery Programs

Rescue missions depend on labor provided by people in their programs to do a variety of tasks that are essential to their operations. Men and women in recovery programs can be found in kitchens, performing housekeeping and maintenance tasks, providing office support, and driving trucks to pick up donations. Certainly, we value the services they provide. Equally important, though, is the need to give additional meaning to their efforts by creatively using their work assignments to invest in their lives. What follows is a list of some ways this can be accomplished:

A. Develop a purpose statement for rescue mission work projects

Smoking and Recovery Programs

Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in our society. It is responsible for about 419,000 US deaths each year. Smoking accounts for 1/3 of cancer deaths. It is a major cause of heart disease and cancers of the lungs, mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, pancreas, uterus, cervix, kidney, and bladder. The average smoker shortens his life by fifteen years!

Nicotine and Addiction to Other Drugs & Alcohol

Keeping "Professional Distance"

Some schools actually instruct therapists not to "insert their own personalities" into the counseling process and discourage them from sharing anything at all about themselves with counselees. Yet. I believe that it is possible to maintain a balance between over-involvement and being so objective that those we work with never see our "human" side.

A. The benefits of "self-revelation" in the counseling process
There are many good reasons to share our own spiritual journeys with those we seek to help, especially if we ourselves have overcome an addiction to drugs and alcohol.
