Woodlake’s New Additions

WL new additionsFor we know how dearly God loves us.
We can rejoice when we run into problems and trials for we know that they are good for us: they help us learn to be patient.   And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.
Remember that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  Whatever the challenge, you will be able to face it, one step at a time.

Today’s Reflection

Don’t give in to the black dog: depression is like a black dog- always around, always following you, always present. – Winston Churchillwoodlake 41713

Medication Compliance- Not an easy pill to swallow.

According to the World Health Organization only about 50% of people actually follow their doctor’s orders properly when it comes to taking prescription medication. People are even less likely to be compliant taking medications for chronic diseases; especially those diseases that are typically asymptotic.

Beautiful Day

It has been absolutely beautiful out at Woodlake lately. We’ve been blessed with amazing weather and everything is starting to bloom wonderfully. Besides some of our allergies acting up, we couldn’t ask for a more pleasant time of year on the grounds of Woodlake!

Words of Reflection

There’s only one thing worth being concerned about: many say that God will never help us.  Prove them wrong, O Lord, by letting the light of Your face shine down upon us.  Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with You forever in Your home. Oh, that You would burst forth from the skies and come down!    Start your day with your Woodlake family in the presence of the Lord.  Never hold grudges: the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Recovery Dynamics

The Woodlake treatment team and staff are proud to announce that as of August 2012, Woodlake has been approved to become a licensed provider of “Recovery Dynamics”.  The “Recovery Dynamics” program is based on the text of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12-steps.  It stresses three important goals: The problem, the solution, and a planned program of action which will bring about the solution.  Goal 1 of “Recovery Dynamics” explains the problem, which is the mental obsession coupled with the physical allergy = powerless.  Goal 2 explains the solution, which is the fellowship(supports us) and the 12-steps(change us) = power.  Goal 3…
