Better Together

Fresh starts and forward motion

The Power of We

What do you want to do for your recovery this year? The start of 2017 brings fresh opportunities to reflect, re-focus and renew.

My sobriety date is December 27, which probably explains why I feel especially grateful and energized this time of year. It's been just over 19 years since I got my life back from addiction, and I try to honor that gift each New Year by setting a personal goal or two that keeps me growing, evolving and living to good purpose.

Your January issue of Better Together is filled with great resources and ideas to help you renew and reenergize your recovery. I've even decided share my new goal with all of you—so it's official (yikes).

As the saying goes, our lives don't get better by chance; our lives get better by change. Fortunately, we are our own agents of change.

Your friend and fellow traveler,


Happy New Year from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Nell Hurley, the executive director of National Alumni Relations for the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation shares her best wishes for a very happy New Year to all of the friends of the Foundation. She asks what you would like to do for your recovery in 2017. The beginning of each new year is a great time for reflection, fresh starts, and for trying something. Happy New Year!
