Meridians Recovery

Meridians Recovery Jim Gross
Meridians Recovery is proud to announce its grand opening on July 1st 2011 as a Recovery Community Organization, or (RCO). This program is ideal for those seeking a peer based residential recovery setting, clients discharging from treatment seeking entry to the recovery community, drug court assignment, court deferment, relapse prevention or reentry to the recovery community after relapse. The goal of treatment has always been to facilitate the clients’ entry into a recovery life style. The best treatment outcomes have always been a result of lengthy stays in long term treatment, three months to a year. Not many people or their insurance companies can afford to pay these sky rocketing fees for services necessary to stave off relapse and gain solid footing in a recovery community of support. For the price of one month at almost any other treatment center you could spend a whole year at Meridians Recovery.

Here at Meridians Recovery, we have an authentic peer-oriented social model program. The first thirty days is our most critical period of recovery. It is at this time we make our greatest inroads in building our recovery foundation. We implement rapid entry into involvement with available pathways to long term successful recovery. We actually begin to instill a genuine desire in the individual to chase their recovery by the example in which we do recover. By this time, the individual should be well on their way in recovery. Through authentic peer-oriented guidance, the individual has a good understanding of what it takes to recover on a daily basis. The longer the individual stays in an authentic peer-oriented system of care, the greater are their chances at full recovery from their substance use disorder.

Mission: Meridians Recovery is a non-profit corporation committed to providing outstanding residential treatment and outpatient recovery services, community awareness and education of related issues, in the Loudoun County, Virginia area. Meridians Recovery maintains an open mindedness of its application of Alternative Medical approaches, focusing on the mind, body and spirit. Meridians Recovery is also committed to making these services affordable so that no one will be turned away on the basis of an inability to pay.

Neuroscience Reveals How Gratitude Literally Rewires Your Brain to be Happier

Neuroscientists have found that if you really feel it when you say it, you'll be happier and healthier. The regular practice of expressing gratitude is not a New Age fad; it's a facet of the human condition that reaps true benefits to those who mean it.

Meridians Recovery received a grant from The Closet of the Greater Herndon Area. We would like to say that the words, thank you, pale in the light of such a gift. It also warms our hearts to be recognized with such gratitude from the community for which we have so much passion. We recently came up woefully short in our fundraiser and your gift will cover the first months rent and a utility or two in our new women's recovery house. Thank you ever so kindly.

The neuronal changes in cell structures within the frontal lobe, nucleus acumbens, and dopamine reward center are all part of the brain disease that happens with addiction. This affects judgement, behavior and decision making - executive function. Limited stress management abilities and compulsion are the end result. Addiction becomes our rapacious creditor availed in a maidens dress.

Meridians Recovery would like to graciously thank the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors for granting exempt status from real property tax for our non-profit. Some organizations, while providing a valuable service within Loudoun County, operate on a shoe string budget, and often at a loss. Even a savings of less than $1,000 can make the difference between paying a critical bill, like insurance, and having to go without coverage. Sincerely, Executive Director, Jim Gross

Addiction now defined as brain disorder, not behavior issue

Addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavior problem involving alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex, experts contend in a new definition of addiction, one that is not solely related to problematic substance abuse.

God, I offer myself to Thee – to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of Life. May I do Thy will always!
