🌱An introduction🌱Personally I really enjoy finding out more about the people behind the accounts I follow. My name is Heidi and I live in South London with my husband, 5 year old son and rescue cat. I’m a former primary school teacher and now a trained infant massage and story massage instructor. I’m not an expert in child development, child psychology or parenting but I like learning about all of these things 🤓. I have a strong belief that it is our connection to our children (not control) that is our greatest parenting tool. Sharing massage with our son as an infant and now as a young child through #storymassage has had a profound impact on our family life and especially the emotional literacy of our son. By establishing @calm_little_people I want to raise awareness of the power of positive nurturing touch for babies and beyond. Love creates love 💕 .

Learned Helplessness – The Enemy of Autonomy⁣

Learned helplessness occurs when one repeatedly experiences pain and frustration, coupled with a general lack of control over his or her environment, and becomes too used to this state of being. Becoming habituated to a sense of helplessness, he or she will not attempt to change the painful situation they are in, even when it becomes entirely possible to do so.⁣

The notion that we are helpless is usually introduced to us as young children. Many of us grew up in chaotic, alcoholic homes. Our parents, who are often addicted, themselves, could be ultra critical and incredibly hard on us.⁣

Too often, even as grown adults, we live under the law of our parents, under the set of beliefs and rules imposed on us when we were small children, before we were able to form our own – but what if they just don’t fit anymore? So the problem becomes how we make the leap from learned helplessness to autonomy?⁣

When it comes to teaching autonomy, our approach at Alo House is to not shelter our clients from life. After all, we all got to make mistakes in our recovery. So why would we get to, or want to, shelter our clients from making mistakes in theirs?⁣

In essence, this is how we learn and grow and improve as people. Failure is okay! Mistakes are okay! As long as we are willing enough, and man or woman enough, to face the consequences. But we wouldn’t know it from the culture we grew up in, where each of us were rewarded for perfection and punished for failure in an outdated, unrealistic education system. We aren’t policemen, and we aren’t controlling parents. We want our clients to be free!⁣

Your horse staying calm, focused and regulated while you are tense, checked out or anxious is an unreasonable expectation
.
Of course, there are some horses who do this some of the time
.
But that should be a privilege for you, not a requirement that is placed on your horse.
.
Very few horses are secure enough to stay regulated constantly while we are disregulated
.
Just like very few humans are able to stay completely regulated around a horse who is in fight or flight.
.
There is nothing wrong with spending time with your horse when you are stressed/anxious etc
.
But be mindful of your state, their state and what you are asking of them
.
Taking into account both you and your horse's emotional/mental/physical state...ask yourself: is this a fair and kind request?
.
It is not our horses job to regulate for us.

Before you expect anything close to perfection from your horse...
.
Work on their understanding of the first step of what you want (release/reward)
.
And before that, work on getting effort in the right direction (release/reward)
.
And before that, you want willingness to put in effort period (release/reward)
.
And before that, release/reward for them being present and connected.
.
Connection first.
.
But before any of that, check in with yourself...your emotional, physical, mental and energetic state has more influence on your horse than you know.

Road to Recovery: Real Life Stories From Rehab - Samantha⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Getting Checked-In to Rehab⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The woman behind the desk was kind, but curt. She told me that a woman named Anna would be out in a moment to show me to my room and go through my belongings.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I immediately remember feeling my stomach drop, not because I had anything in my possession that I shouldn’t, but because I didn’t like the idea of a stranger going through my stuff. I knew I did not have a choice, so I just nodded and waited.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was brought to a small room with two beds and one closet. Anna asked me to place my duffle bag and purse on the bed and step back. She then dumped everything out from my duffle bag. She lifted and shook each item of clothing, opened up my toiletry bag and placed my mouthwash, shampoo and conditioner aside.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She said because my shampoo and conditioner were in bottles without labels I would not be allowed to keep them. She also said that due to the fact that my mouthwash did not appear alcohol-free, that would be confiscated as well.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I remember feeling a fair amount of discomfort with a stranger going through my belongings. I knew it was part of the program, and I was so sick of fighting with people in my life that I retreated into myself.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once she was finished, she handed me a paper schedule and told me that I needed to be in the large room on the first floor for “group. I nodded, and she left.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I felt so many feelings, it’s hard to describe. These new people that I would soon meet in “group” would forever be part of my recovery journey. I was overwhelmed, but am so grateful I went through it, instead of escaping it.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The initial discomfort stayed with me the entire stay at the rehab facility. I did, however, learn to appreciate it — the discomfort, in a way, kept me and still does keep me on my toes.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

With television shows like “13 Reasons Why” and the tragic reports of teen suicide due to cyberbullying, the issue of bullying has been brought into the spotlight, and for good reason: Bullying is a major problem in our nation’s schools.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to recent statistics, 1 in 4 students experiences bullying before they graduate from high school, making this issue more prevalent than many parents and school administrators realize.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While bullying is behavior that typically occurs with children and teenagers, it has devastating long-term effects for all those involved.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As bullying destroys self-esteem and interferes with connection, victims are at risk of turning to drugs and alcohol to numb these difficult feelings.⁣ And those who bully often spend time with equally aggressive people, making them more apt to experiment with substances at an earlier age.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At Alo House, it is our mission to uplift our clients, rebuild self-worth, and foster connection.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Connection, not control! You’ll hear me talk about this a lot.
As soon as we seek to control another person we create an opportunity for resistance. If we continue seeking control, we cause a battle.
When one person consistently “wins control,” the relationship is no longer equal. One person’s voice or opinion or power is greater than the other’s.
Such a dynamic is not healthy. It creates space for vulnerability or bullying. It teaches one person that their value less.
It empowers one by disempowering another.
In our relationships with each other and with our children, we must strive to avoid this.
We must seek to control only our own thoughts and actions and then take the time connect and communicate with others.
Through connection, we move forward. We teach respect and show others that we value them.
We show our children healthy ways to communicate, we give them a voice that is heard. We allow disagreement without conflict. We hear each other.

Bob Forrest, Program Co-Founder of Alo House Recovery Centers, discusses the young adult addiction treatment program at Alo House.⁣

As a founder of Alo House, one of the things that keeps Bob up at night is trying to figure out how to explain things so they make sense to millennials, because they are so different from baby boomers or Gen Xers in the way they see the world.⁣

The Minnesota Model, which is the typical drug treatment approach for the last 60 years in America, doesn't really fit with millennials. The 12-step treatment approach just doesn't fit with them, which is why our non 12 step rehab approach works much better for young adults.⁣

When you are undergoing treatment for drug addiction, you are going to become agitated, irritable, restless and discontent. You are going to learn how to walk through feelings you haven’t felt before and how to work against your impulses.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Addicts, know this. If you’re contemplating going to rehab for drug treatment, you’re signing up for feeling uncomfortable, facing your fears, feeling overwhelming feelings— and it will be tremendously rewarding learning that they pass away.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Understand that on the other side of those uncomfortable feelings is insight, peace of mind and satisfaction. Don’t sacrifice your sobriety – possibly your life – just to get away from uncomfortable or uncertain feelings.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This week (and next) is half term. It has been one of those weeks where work takes last place.
It can be super hard to put our lives on hold for another person, but it is also a huge privilege. An honour. When a person feels vulnerable and chooses to place their trust in you nothing else matters. In that moment, we become that person’s anchor. Their safety net. We hold the power to raise another person up out of the depths. And this honour should never be taken lightly.

So, yes, I have to work late. Yes I am exhausted. Yes, I have felt stressed and frustrated. But I remind myself how fortunate I am to know this child and how wonderful it is that he still places all his trust in me.

Mastering Your Sleep: Steps to Building a Healthy Relationship With Bedtime⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve all been there – you’re lying awake at night, staring at your ceiling, counting sheep and periodically checking your clock, only to find that you’re 7 am wake-up call is creeping closer and closer.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 40-million people in the United States suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year, and an additional 20 million people experience occasional sleep problems.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Research shows that regular bad sleep puts you at risk of medical conditions like obesity, heart disease and diabetes – conditions that can drastically shorten life expectancy.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aside from these physical effects, lack of sleep can have a detrimental impact on mental health, especially in those already suffering from symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Though it may seem hopeless when you’ve spent weeks tossing and turning in bed, there are steps you can take to help re-sync your clock and build a new, healthy relationship with sleep.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Notes from Rehab Bob:⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Addiction is a living, breathing, thinking, feeling based disease. It is not like any other disease. It is not like cancer or diabetes that so many try to get addicts and the public at large to accept. I’m convinced we never will accept the disease model wholly because within this disease is a human being who seems to be deciding to destroy themselves with drugs and or alcohol. A human being with free will.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Heroin Addiction Treatment⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Alo House program uses “Connection, Not Control®” as a way to empower and inspire our clients through their addiction recovery.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 86% of heroin users interviewed in 2009 said their addiction started with prescription pill abuse.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, heroin addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and around the world. Much of the problem began with doctors overprescribing pain medications to their patients.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Detox is usually the first step for treating heroin addiction. At Alo House, we offer a safe and comfortable detox facility that is medically supervised in-house. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To learn more about our Heroin Addiction Treatment Program in Los Angeles and Malibu, California, call us toll-free at (888) 331-0472.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Client-Centered or Person-Centered Therapy is an approach that was developed by psychologist Carol Rogers who believed that we, as individuals, have the ability to find the solutions and make appropriate changes that will be in our own best interest.⁣

This type of therapy is non-authoritative, meaning the client takes control of the therapy session instead of being led by a therapist. The therapist’s role is to offer support and encouragement in a non-judgmental nature and to keep the session moving in a positive direction.⁣

When asked what they think is the most heavily abused drug in the United States, many people choose opioids, inhalants, or stimulants.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In reality, the answer is a substance that many may not categorize as a drug at all: alcohol. If this comes as a surprise to you, there’s a lot about alcohol you may not know, like that alcohol is a depressant that often disguises itself as a stimulant. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s important to understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution for addiction, and it is vital that all cases are treated independently and tailored to the needs of each client. Because no two addictions look alike, no two treatments should look alike.⁣

While the direct cause of addiction is unknown, it is not uncommon for those battling substance use disorders to have a history of mental illness or other existing mental health conditions.⁣

⁣
While the direct cause of addiction is unknown, it is not uncommon for those battling substance use disorders to have a history of mental illness or other existing mental health conditions.⁣

Notes from Rehab Bob:⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Recovery n health n wellness are just catch phrases now. I don’t use em. They have been corrupted by bad actor rehab call centers on the internet. I just say - Are you living in love, or are you living in fear? Your choice! Your Fucking choice. Gravitate towards the light. Or drift towards the darkness. Your choice. Your fucking choice. Live in gratitude n humility. Or live in arrogance, entitlement n ignorance. Your choice. Your fucking choice. No one else to blame but you"⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let's face it - recovery is not easy! When journeying along this rocky path it's important for one to be honest with themselves. Honesty is a key element of any successful life away from addiction. #connectionnotcontrol #findyourself

Recovery and surfing are similar in the sense that you often fall down and feel swallowed by the waters that surround you. At Alo House, we're here to help you stand up on that wave, ride it out and pick you up when you fall down. 📸 @henry.hume
