Opioid Initiative

Hope is Dope, a four-part class

Join us as we discover a revolutionary approach to the understanding, treatment, and successful recovery of opioid addiction.  We are not winning the war on drugs using fear and negative energy.  Hope is Dope offers a fresh and optimistic approach to healing.  Using science and easily understood analogies from the text “Hope is Dope” by Steve Treu, this class provides insights into an alternative treatment plan that offers a clear pathway to recovery. 

The class is open to those in opioid recovery, family or friends of those that suffer from opioid addiction, support group personnel, treatment providers, educators or concerned community members.

Class Series Description

Class 1:    It’s All in Your Head

The brain is a pharmacy, endorphin hijacking, endorphin hibernation, getting the brain out of debt, crutches in recovery, the jumpstart for the endorphin fix, and the butterfly effect: small can morph into large.

Class 2:    A Unified Diversity

Different pathways but same destinations; relativity, energy, observer effect, practice makes perfect, the volcano, the brain’s GPS, and waterfall.

Class 3:    Just Say Yes

Healing and embracing good habits, the balancing act, the map, and safe spaces.

Class 4:    Putting it All Together

Exploring body, mind, and spirit behaviors and actions.
