So we all know that alcoholism and addiction is a behavioral disease. To help maintain an active recovery then necessary behavioral changes must happen.
Some of these changes often include employment. One thing I was really bad at within my addiction was being reliable. Reliable to get to work, reliable to be at a family event, reliability as a whole.
What is nice about employment in your active recovery is it can help keep yourself honest and accountable. I’ll also say that I, as an active recovery addict, seem to be more motivated and determined than others that I work with. This is not to say they do bad work or lack motivation, it just means that I am aware that I have a little extra “oomph” when it comes to my day-to-day. That “oomph” is my recovery. I wake up every day trying to be better than I was the day before. What else could be more beneficial to an employer?
With that we would like to update you on the IMPACT HIRING EVENT taking place on AUGUST 24th,2016 from 9AM-12PM. This is located at 1213 N Arlington INDPLS, IN 46219 on the 1st floor.
Companies such as Kroger, Xerox, FedEx, and many many more will be conducting hiring interviews. Me and Big Jim G were talking today about our experiences in recovery in the work place. I got my “second chance” by means of a downtown restaurant and ran with it. We all need a second chance at times, this may be that opportunity for you.
Here is the brochure. As always if you need us, we are here. All you have to do is call or come. God Bless
Good Morning! What a perfect day for the reflection on the A.A. site to be “letting go of our old selves”. What better way to do that than donating to a terrific cause and letting go(donating) items you may no longer need to a great cause such as Club East and play a role in helping people put their lives back together one step at a time!?!? The rummage sale is in full swing today! Come by the Club if you are looking to shop items(we’ve got clothes, desks, couches, fireplaces, books, etc.). If you are looking for a place to have some good, clean fun and lend a helping hand then swing by as well, there will be no shortage on help needed as we look to rebuild lives on the eastside of Indy!
Look forward to seeing you and God Bless!
Hello and God Bless! Serenity!
This is a reminder that we are excited to kick-off the annual Rummage Sale at Club East today through Sunday.
A lot of work has gone into this and SO MANY wonderful people have donated such amazing items to help the Club.
I have seen everything from fireplaces to mattresses to clothes and couches and everything in between showing up. It is truly amazing to see the out-pour of support coming in for the Club.
Please be sure to tell your friends and family to come by.
Anyone looking for opportunities to volunteer to help during the rummage sale please call the Club and ask for Jim Gross.
The important question about addiction is: Is it really a “disease?” Pleasure Unwoven presents the arguments for and against this compelling question. The one-hour documentary, filmed in high-definition and recipient of NAATP’s 2010 Michael Q. Ford Journalism Award, uses the spectacular landscape of Utah’s State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction and turns complex neuroscientific concepts into easy-to-understand visual images. Reviewing all the latest research about addiction along the way, Pleasure Unwoven will help people in recovery understand their own struggle and in turn feel better understood, and encourage their families and friends in believing that recovery is possible.
Pleasure Unwoven: A Personal Journey about Addiction
Thursday, April 23rd Club East Cafe
7:00PM Free Admission
Pleasure Unwoven is the best critical representation of the addiction process I’ve seen to date. For anyone seriously hoping to end destructive addictive behavior involving alcohol or drugs, this is a gotta see, as it is for anyone with someone in their life who struggles with any addiction. This beautifully filmed — but more importantly — excellently written documentary will help viewers understand the complicated neurological and medical components of addiction. — greg w

Haven’t even seen the game yet and I’m already sold on this great Kia commercial featuring former James Bond hunk Pierce Bronsan. Don’t know how he kept a straight face through this other than it’s all… ACTING!
Oh, and he gets to keep the car.
See, this is why you want to be at Club East this Sunday for the Football Party that just happens to coincide with the S***r B**l. Lots of food and great commercials in-between all the football.

Ain’t nuthin’ to see here, folks. Nope. Just a bunch of alcoholics and addicts keepin’ it legal. Move along now.
