For those familiar with any 12-Step Program, the most remarkable aspect of these is the fact that only the first of the twelve steps makes any mention of the addictive substance or act. Sobriety/abstinence is described as a “daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition”. Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. Together they offer us a truly empowering personal program of recovery. 12-Step Programs also recommend an “occasional retreat from the outside world where we can quiet down for an undisturbed day or so of self-overhaul and meditation”. Yoga of Recovery offers retreats in beautiful, peaceful locations where you can relax, recover, and rejuvenate.
12-Step programs propose a spiritual remedy and do not offer much advice for the physical dimension of healing from addiction. One very important aspect of this is Hatha yoga – the asanas and breathing exercises. During the retreat you will practice yogic physical exercises – asanas (suitable for all levels) along with breathing exercises and conscious relaxation

STAR Center’s September Webinar: Who's On Your Bus?
Tuesday, September 24th
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Our recovery journey is a constant ride and never a destination. As drivers of our own Recovery Bus, we may face unexpected traffic and detours. How we handle changing directions has much to do with the passengers we have on board.
A discussion led by the multicultural panel of George Badillo, Yvonne Smith and Jen Padron will discuss ways you can invite diverse passengers who will support and empower you in your route to recovery.
The message of valuing every voice and inclusiveness will resonate in this thought-provoking dialogue. This webinar will inspire all diverse communities to keep the conversation culturally relevant about who is "on their bus" and the current route they are taking.
In this webinar you will come away with the necessary tools to:
• Create and define your vision of recovery.
• Identify and invite the right passengers on your bus.
• Navigate adversity, potholes and unexpected negative passengers.
• Fuel your journey with positive energy and enthusiasm.

Each year, NCADD Affiliates and others convene at the Conference of Affiliates for three days of training, networking and socializing.
NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner and Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr. In support of The McShin Foundation and the Richmond City Jail Recovery Program
