Here Tomorrow is a mental health collaborative in Neptune Beach, FL.  We offer peer support services for people living with mental health conditions and people struggling with addiction.  Our purpose in hosting a 12 Step Recovery Support Group is to help get people in recovery from their addiction, but also to understand that mental health and coping plays a significant role in our behaviors.

Could you be celebrating a sobriety date today, this week, this month?  If so, let us know!!  We want to celebrate recovery with you.  

Could you be struggling with addiction, anger, and know you need support?  If so, let us know!!  We want to walk by your side and help you with our 12 Step Recovery Support Group and also build a relationship between you and our peer support professionals.

Here Tomorrow is a mental health collaborative in Neptune Beach, FL.  We don’t have clients, we have “friends!”  Every friend of ours is a friend that matters.  Whether you are experiencing mental health conditions or problems with addiction dependency, we want to be a friend and help you in recovery.

At Here Tomorrow, we can obtain and maintain our Recovery from addictive behaviors and also learn more about mental health conditions and how mental health can affect the physical and mental need to use.

Before we get started, we would like to remind everyone that this group is a safe place that is free of judgement. What we share in this room STAYS in this room.

During group, please do not share graphic details about your addiction that may be a stressor to others’, we want to ensure everyone’s comfort.

Our goal with this 12 Step Model group is to create an environment where we can openly discuss our lives as addicts and learn from each other’s journey into recovery. We will open the meeting up to everyone but as we share, we will be mindful and respectful of time.

Each week we will discuss the Steps and have an open conversation about how to work them.

Here Tomorrow feels strongly that the 12 Step approach to the disease of addiction is completely realistic, for the therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel.

We feel that our way is practical, for one addict can best understand and help another addict. We believe that the sooner we face our problems within our society, in everyday living, just that much faster do we become acceptable, responsible, and productive members of that society.

The only way to keep from returning to active addiction is not to take that first drug or that first sip. If you are like us you know that one is too many and a thousand never enough.  More importantly, in recovery, we believe that consistent meetings while being present and doing the work is what it takes for long lasting recovery and success.

Before we begin our meeting, let us take a moment of silence for those who are still sick and suffering and those who we have lost to their battle with addiction.

Is there anyone who is celebrating a sobriety date this week? If so, let us know!!! We want to celebrate with you!!!

12 Step Recovery Program Jacksonville Beach

The 12-Step program model, first developed and used by Alcoholics Anonymous, is a 12-step plan in order to overcome addictions and compulsions. The basic premise of this model is that people can help one another achieve and maintain abstinence from substances of abuse, but that healing cannot come about unless people with addictions surrender to a higher power and living life on life’s terms.

What are the 12 Steps to recovery?

The 12 Steps, as outlined in the original Big Book are:

  1. Admitting we are powerless over our addictions and that our lives have become unmanageable
  2. Finding a Power greater than ourselves and believing that having faith in it can help restore our sanity. 
  3. Surrendering our control over to a Higher Power (living life on life’s terms)
  4. Making a fearless and honest moral inventory of ourselves
  5. Admitting the exact nature of our wrongs to ourselves, our Higher Power and another person
  6. Being entirely ready to have our Higher Power correct our character defects
  7. Humbly asking our Higher Power to remove our shortcomings
  8. Making a list of all persons we have harmed during our addiction and becoming willing to make amends to them
  9. Making direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would be harmful to them, ourselves or others
  10. Promptly admitting our wrongs and continuing to take person inventory daily
  11. Seeking through meditation and prayer to improve our conscious contact with our Higher Power
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of following these steps, we try to carry this message to other addicts and practice these principles in every aspect of our lives
