Do I have any spiritual people or people of faith following me? If this is something meaningful to you, it can really support mental health and addiction recovery. In addiction recovery they often talk of a “higher power”. This doesn’t always mean god. I remember a service user I worked with YEARS ago, said to me; “Hannah, my higher power is that chair over there because it does not have an addiction, I do. That chair can hold me and I will use it”. That person did not have a faith but drew strength from a piece of furniture. For other people it can be a pet, a partner, family, a child, a tree, a place, art, sport or a hobby plus many many more things. A higher power can be the recovery community itself.
