With The Upward Spiral our goal is simple. We want to provide a place for the open and honest discussion of addiction, recovery and other mental health issues. These issues are on the rise at an almost frightening pace. It is time we begin “rending the veils” so to speak.
What makes us different from other online recovery resources? Though the goals are the same and anyone and everyone is welcome here, our focus is on those who come from non-traditional religious and philosophical backgrounds. Thelemites, pagans, hermeticists, etc.
Because we are not affiliated with any treatment center, professional program or any medical, psychiatric, psychological or counseling professionals, we are independent. Though there may be some among the users of this service that are such professionals.
We are real people who have had experience with addiction and or other mental health issues, and recovery. Some of us firsthand experience, while others having been witness to the destruction these issues can wreak on family and friends. We have come out of the other side stronger for it, and firmly believe that recovery is possible for everyone.
There is no “This is how it is done” formula that works for every person. We all walk different walks and will all take different paths. And yet, we believe that recovery is absolutely possible, and that it should be placed within reach of anyone and everyone who wishes to get better.
