“Unwinding” with alcohol or recreational drugs has become an accepted practice in our society, considered an easy way to relieve stress, cope with trauma or deal with grief. However, it is not an effective way to find any meaningful relief from our struggles.

Alcohol is a sedative and a depressant that affects the central nervous system. At first, drinking can reduce fears and take your mind off of your troubles, can help you feel less shy, give you a boost in mood, and make you feel generally relaxed. In fact, alcohol’s effects can be similar to those of anti-anxiety medications. But once we start drinking, we can build a tolerance to the de-stressing effects of alcohol. This can make anxiety and stress even more difficult to cope with. More at bit.ly/3cfQbdq #InterimInc #Recovery #Hope

How to Cope With ‘Reentry Anxiety’
We’re returning to a semblance of “normal,” whatever that even means anymore. But many people are not feeling “normal” just yet. And if you’re feeling anxiety about going back out there in a post-COVID-19 world, you are not alone. Many others are experiencing the same “reentry anxiety.” As our world changes — again — think of these things to help you cope: Focus on what’s in your control; make a bucket list of the things you’re excited to do again; accept whatever you’re feeling; get back into activities slowly; stay informed, but disconnect when you need to; accept that life has changed quite a bit; reach out for help if you need to. If you need help, call Interim Inc., at (831) 649-4522, go to interiminc.org or go to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website at samhsa/gov.

Our MCHOME program provides outreach, housing and intensive, integrated services to homeless adults with psychiatric disabilities. The program model follows a ‘whatever it takes’ approach to moving people off the streets. Staff first works on establishing trust while persuading clients to accept shelter or housing. Safety in shelter or housing creates a strong foundation for recovery to succeed. MCHOME’s goal is to move homeless individuals with psychiatric disabilities off the street and into housing, permanently. More at bit.ly/2Os28DE ... See MoreSee Less
