Central Aspects of Miracles Of Recovery:
To provide a safe nonjudgmental integrated comprehensive environment of recovery, breaking the current cycle of relapse and death from overdose; providing resources for all who suffer and their loved ones, utilizing all the recovery tools, technology, and assets available today, embracing all avenues of recovery with real consistent aftercare and an eye to the future. The approach multi-pronged: (1st Aspect) An updated design for living incorporating all facets of recovery with today’s realities and sensibilities, (2nd Aspect) reinvigorating “old school” methods with their long proven record of accomplishment (currently there are 200,000+ AA/NA meetings weekly worldwide in 181 countries) but unfortunately many members openly denigrate professional treatment and alternate paths, in turn alienating many, but particularly young people (avg. age in AA is 50 and 74% are 41 and over, only 12% under 30*) who don’t fit a narrow criterion for inclusion. Incorporating all current recovery modalities in a format bridging to past generations, those 40 and over, with real world gatherings and hard back books to this and coming generations (3rd Aspect) reliance on instantaneous communication, social media, and a preference for electronic commerce and professional engagement. Building and establishing real links (4th Aspect) between professional recovery and an outside integrated recovery community welcoming and supporting all paths and modalities of recovery, creating networks of real sustainable long-term aftercare and (5th Aspect) new and innovative income streams that don’t rely solely on Health Care Providers or governmental largess to survive and grow.

Miracles Of Recovery
Published by Vincent Lee Jones
Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives.
My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years.
As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives.
In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725.
I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
