Why Do I Need a Recovery House?

A Safe Place

Getting sober requires a different environment than what you are used to. If you go back to where you were before instead of coming to a recovery house, there’s a much higher chance you will relapse. Sure, everyone may say that relapse is a part of recovery. But it doesn’t have to be.

Sees-the-Day is a recovery house for people who are serious about getting clean and sober. Sees-the-Day has specific rules as well as a structured environment that will assure you and your loved ones of your safety.

You must attend 90 NA/AA meetings in 90 days.  If you are not 100% serious about getting and staying clean, this recovery house may not be the place for you. We have these rules so that you can learn to live a responsible life and transition back into society. We also want to make it safe for everyone else living in the recovery house with you.

Finding Your True Self over the Holidays.

Posted by Jason Ohrum

Dec 26, 2014 1:42:40 PM

The Holiday season is once again upon us. For the newly recovering person, the season can be a difficult time, filled with stress, unreasonable expectations, distorted emotions, loneliness and festive situations. Any one of these ingredients could lead to relapse but taken together can be a recipe for disaster.  Rather than getting caught up in the insanity of the holidays, and putting yourself on a slippery slope, why don’t you give you and your family the gift of laying the foundation and committing to “finding your true self” this Holiday Season. It could be the greatest and most rewarding gift you give: to yourself and to your loved ones-the gift that keeps on giving for years to come.


Now you might be scratching your head and asking, “ my true self …who the hell is that”? I hated my old self: the self consumed by drugs and alcohol; the narcissistic self steeped in self-loathing and egomania; the self that made endless broken promises and loss of many promising job.  So what leads me to believe “my true self” is anything different than my old self, you might be asking- and how do I go about finding this enigmatic self?

physically draining experiences you ever have in your life. Although it is always a positive life decision that is sure to benefit you and your loved ones, it is extremely important to recognize that addiction is a life long struggle, and that rehab is likely only the first step towards recovery.

American Society in Denial

Posted by Jason Ohrum

Feb 6, 2014 11:10:00 AM

It is quite evident by the language used by many of the talking heads and media experts in describing the alleged overdose death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman that American society still fails to grasp the disease concept regarding addiction. Evidence can be found in the words used to rationalize Hoffman’s long standing bout with heroin as someone with “problems” or someone who struggled with internal “demons”. If an educated person today referred to someone with cancer or heart disease as person with “problems” or internal “demons” we would more than likely either question their sanity or sarcastically ask what century are they from.   

Not one media expert, except for Dr. Drew, mentioned the word disease when explaining Hoffman’s struggle with opiate addiction, leading me to conclude that most of society still sees addiction as a moral issue or lack of will power rather than a medical issue. It is difficult to believe this attitude exists in modern America 30 years after the American Medical Association deemed drug addiction a chronic, progressive and fatal disease.
