We are in recovery, We are Recovery Threads™

Recovery Threads™ is dedicated to providing the highest quality T-shirts and clothing to the recovering community. All of our shirts are printed with the highest quality inks, multiple screens, and precision dryers. Each Recovery Threads™ T-shirt is constructed from premium 6.1 ounce, preshrunk, heavyweight 100% cotton. All T-shirts are fully taped shoulder to shoulder, and double needle hemmed for long-lasting durability.
We offer clothing with attitude and all of our items offer messages to other recovering people without breaking anonymity.
We currently employ a staff of artists, representing many different 12-step programs. It is this special mix that has produced the first designs in our product line which are currently enjoying a wildly popular reception among the recovering community throughout the nation! We recognize that the recovering community is ever-changing, yet MUST be strongly rooted in tradition. It is this philosophy that charged the formation of Recovery Threads™. We truly believe that recovering people are “not a glum lot” and we absolutely insist on having fun. This belief is strongly evident in all of our designs. We think you’ll agree!

New Hope Recovery Center – Interventions December 8, 2009

Understanding Intervention Services

Interventions explained
There is some misconception about intervention services. Interventions are often portrayed in the media as highly conflictual meetings in which friends and family members air out their grievances towards one person. Certainly, interventions are confrontational, and they usually involve close family members. With a trained interventionist, however, an intervention session will be well run and contained.

An intervention is generally defined as an attempt to disrupt a person’s pattern of negative and addictive behaviors. Some individuals are unable to see how the disease of addiction has affected their lives and the lives of those around them. While some friends and family may have expressed anger, worry and frustration, their message does not get through. Addiction is so powerful and insidious because it causes the mind to rationalize compulsive and destructive behaviors to maintain the addiction. A trained interventionist can break through an individual’s false sense of reality. The objectivity that a professional interventionist brings to the intervention dissipates some of the intensity of the emotions that surface, preventing blaming, shaming and other defeating communication.

Only a trained clinician can assess whether an intervention would be appropriate for your friend or loved one.

The New Hope Recovery intervention difference
New Hope Recovery Center offers professional intervention services when needed. If you contact us, we can give you more detailed information on the intervention process and how it can help your loved one take the first step to recovery from addiction. Intervention services are tailored towards the needs of your family member or loved one. After speaking with you, we can get a better idea of the friends and family members to be present at an intervention, the format for the session and the most effective addiction treatment for the individual in need. Please contact us with your questions or concerns about interventions. We are here to help.
