Prevention. Wellness. Recovery.
Oftentimes, when we’re met with stress, we resort to unhealthy coping mechanisms – like drugs and alcohol. Wellness Week with Herren is all about practicing healthy ways of handling life’s challenges with the goal of the prevention and recovery of substance use disorder.
Wellness assists us in establishing boundaries, creating healthy habits and loving who we are. Practicing wellness allows us to take our own journey to create healthy, happy, fulfilling lives. This framework helps prevent the misuse of substances and helps those in recovery feel more grounded in their sobriety.
Overall physical, mental and social wellbeing help us live the amazing lives we deserve, free from the negative effects of substances. Wellness gives us tools to meet life’s challenges and joys substance-free and strengthen our “sense of self.”
Practice wellness, connect with your best self, and BE YOU, LIVE WELL!
We encourage you to show your spirit by wearing purple and join the Herren Organizations by participating in one or more wellness activities or events during the week.
