Breakfast at Epiphany’s
Fasten your seatbelts because today, we’re going to fly...
They say that ignorance is bliss. To illustrate that, look at little children. They are carefree, happy and hopeful. They play and they laugh. Their biggest worry is what kind of juice box they’re going to get. Santa Claus is real and the Easter bunny comes around every year. It is a wonderful time. But we eventually have to grow up or we’re going to have some major problems. I never grew up and I had some major problems. I purchased the extended warranty plan on ignorance.
But these days, I keep having a new epiphany every day and it’s the same epiphany. I wake each day to an immediate realization that either I’m going to get with God and be safe or follow my passions and roll the dice. For more than a few days now, I have chosen the former and stayed away from the latter.
Some people say powerlessness is the worst thing in the world, not having control over the most important things. Newsflash for us all: if we weren’t powerless, we wouldn’t need God. I can’t think of a worse thing. I go to God because I am insufficient to handle even daily living on my own. I go to God because I need His Strength.
I follow a list of about a dozen simple rules that handles any potential problem I may encounter on any given day. The list is very specific. If I keep it simple, it works extremely well. If I modify it in any way, shape or form, I will end up with some half-measures and half-measures avail us nothing. God is sending messages to us all the time. To the extent that I hear Him is predicated on the extent of my willingness to have an epiphany today.
When we wake up immediately to concerns of money, relationships and worldly circumstances, have an epiphany for breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.

I'm beyond thankful that I chose Rocky Mountain Treatment Center for inpatient treatment. It wasn't my first rodeo, but definitely my last. I learned about myself and left with the tools I need to live a sober happy life. I can now be the woman my family needs me to be. The staff is beyond amazing! Especially the ones that you see every day. They have all been where you are at, and openly share their stories and insight. I made friends there that I keep in contact with on a regular basis. The first treatment center I went to seemed sterile and hospital like. Rocky Mountain is small enough that you get lots of help to work on you! I am coming up on 5 months sober now. I know it is up to me, but I wouldn't be in this great place without them!
Absolutely changed my life. This is not a facility that you go to to just quit drinking or drugging. The staff there cares deeply about every aspect of your life...therefore you leave there a changed person. I had to want to trust the process. But when I did, everything I needed prepared me for the the journey ahead as I walked out those doors to face an uncertain world. I didn't want to leave but I had all of the tools I needed. And....I had access to counselors afterwards through aftercare as well. I refer all those I come in contact that have a need to Rocky Mountain Treatment Center first. I am forever grateful to them.
Rocky Mountain saved my life. I was "terminally unique" when I came. I had a rationalization for all the craziness in my life caused by alcohol - the common theme being it was someone else's fault. The staff here get it - most of them are in recovery themselves. They were able to show me my "stinking thinking" and gave me the tools to live a meaningful sober life. I am eternally grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the whole Rocky Mountain team!
My name is Chris. After struggling with Alcoholism for over 30 years, the center opened my eyes to a new life. The counseling and care I received were excellent! The tools for a sober life that they taught me I will always use, “one day at a time.” I am writing this with a heart full of gratitude because the treatment center saved my life. I thank God every day for bringing me there. Always Grateful
Don't give up five minutes before the miracle happens. I was ready to give up. RMTC gave me back my life!
