    you this is not standard You can walk into any hospital detox facility and throw yourself on their mercy and see what happens I know how grim this sounds but let s face it if you are strung out on drugs most people do not take pity on you In fact they don t usually have any respect for you often for good reason These nurses and doctors are the front lines between junkies and the pharmaceutical drugs they seek These angels have had to deal with so much depravity that we cannot be shocked if they have become a bit jaded The same goes for the system in general It s just so hard for most people to look at a full blown addict or alcoholic and not pass judgment upon them They are just sick people that generally straighten out amazingly well when they find true recovery If you cannot find a facility that can take you your best bet is to hole up in a safe place preferably with a loved one who is willing to take care of you and go through your detox period without medical supervision The important thing for people who go through this process and for those who help them is to have a plan in place for the moment the person is back on their feet This can mean in patient treatment outpatient treatment therapy or pursuing the 12 Steps The first 3 options cost money or require insurance In some cases however there are rehab facilities that will take you for free For example the Salvation Army has such a program I ve known some people who have gotten sober this way You can go to FreeRehabCenters org for a nationwide listing of places offering free treatment They will vary greatly in the level of expertise and services they present but as the old saying goes any port in a storm I went to Hazelden which is one of the best drug and alcohol treatment facilities around They cost about 30 000 for a month stay these days but will give considerable discounts where needed They will not completely give away their treatment as they have found that it is important for the person seeking help to have some skin in the game There is something to be said about that Outpatient treatment and therapy are also helpful if you can get them but the situation is the same here You need money or insurance Getting sober is a complex issue Beyond treatment and therapy you can access the 12 Steps at no cost It is always free If you need detox and have to sweat it out in a string of 12 Step meetings all day you would not be the first People will help you there but do not expect someone to take you into their home They will get you a cup of coffee and a meal and they will try to get you situated somehow If you are serious about getting sober you will find opportunities coming your way very soon because people will take note of your determination and they will help you even more Soon you will be on your feet and moving gradually toward mental and physical health This is how it has happened for countless men and women It s nothing short of a miracle to see it take place And I can guarantee that there are people who you would meet today after long periods of recovery whose personal stories of transformation would remain beyond your ability to believe them The relapse cycle can make people feel very hopeless You describe several relapses in your journey to recovery What helped you to get through a relapse and to return to the path of recovery and health First if relapse is a part of your story and you are still struggling with addiction do not despair One of the most helpful things I heard is this Every time you try to quit but are not successful you are closer to actually quitting This teaching gave me some much needed space from hopelessness and inspired me to get up and try again When I was in relapse mode and trying to get back on track I needed to know that my past efforts had not been for naught I would say to myself OK Tommy You are closer You are going to get there Do not despair Keep trying One of the keys to getting off of a relapse is to tell the truth You might step into a 12 Step meeting as I did or be honest with a therapist or mentor Telling the truth is a key to recovery and keeps you in the ballpark of reality If you need help you ask for it If you are suicidal you tell someone and get the necessary support My relapse ended finally because I was fed up with myself and told some people in a meeting about it Perhaps that s the most powerful motivator of all I could no longer stand the thought that I was living a half life and when I put words to it somehow I became willing to get back on my recovery path People and connection seem to make the difference If you are alone trapped with negative feelings and thoughts you may get cornered into a situation that you cannot come back from I believe this may be what happened to Robin Williams and many others We have to have each other to heal Is it possible to ever feel safe from relapse Yes I feel safe from relapse I am safe because I have come to a place in my development where to use drugs and alcohol is no longer desired at any level of my being Many people would suggest that for me to say this is arrogant and misguided Those people are perhaps still living in the fear of relapse and have

    probably couldn t dissect that by just looking at my art it might make you think who is this weirdo or this guy is creatively talented Things like that would certainly define me I wouldn t say it helps me process my emotions but it s all about emotion That s how art gets made That s how creativity is born the movement of the psyche by emotion Usually negative emotions for me What types of materials and mediums do you use in your artwork All my art is done digitally through a digital painting process where I incorporate lo res photos of photos drawings advertisements movie stills anything that comes to mind to complete the piece What is your favourite art piece of your own art I m going to say dear poughkeepsie twelve is my favourite piece I needed to make a visual written thesis for my masters program last year and that was one of the pages from it It got the creative wheels turning for me and never looked back What is your favourite art piece by someone else Like I mentioned above art to me is defined in so many mediums and really the most influential art piece to me is a record titled Beautiful Midnight by one of my idols who is actually Canadian and bipolar Matthew Good Do you have a favorite artist This one would harbour on the question above Matthew Good who has released over ten albums and has also written two books and makes art is my favourite artist A couple others would be my idols Morrissey singer of The Smiths and Dorothy Parker poet and writer from the 1920 s What is the art process like for you The art process for me is different every time Sometimes a theme pops into my head Other times I see an image that gets me to create Some of my pieces match in theme causing a string of ideas to run with Sometimes I ll listen to a song or read something that gets me in tunnel vision causing me to see the creation while everything else falls by the wayside Usually an influx of negative emotions or events causes the need for me to express What inspires your artwork Things like music and my favourite passages from my favourite books will inspire me Mostly an emotion that I m feeling overwhelming sadness pain defeat anxiety will inspire me I see my art as on the sad dark side and it s a way that I exert those negative emotions into something creative Less destructive than having the negative emotion take me over It s more or less my personal losses that inspire me What are some of the subjects or themes that your artwork is about I have an emotional connection to the 1920 s and a lot of my work incorporates a lot of images and themes from that era in American culture the roaring twenties carelessness debauchery and

    push it away and pretend it wasn t there and ultimately that only makes your pain grow bigger Now when I m depressed I can sit there and observe it a little bit I can ask myself questions without being afraid of the answers That really helps And of course over six years I ve learned a lot of different mechanisms to help me deal with my depression I find meditation to be very helpful actually It s like hitting the off switch on your mind for half an hour and getting back to a more peaceful and calm place Also exercise is extremely helpful too Those are all little things I do to try and change the state that I m in when I m depressed What would you tell someone who has just been diagnosed with mental health issues What I would tell someone who has just been diagnosed with mental health issues is this isn t the end of the world Far from it You are not alone not even close to being alone There are literally millions of people in the world going through the exact same thing you are But I would also say that now you have to take control of your own life maybe more than you ever have before You have to get yourself help when you need it because no one else is going to be able to do that for you You have to get in touch with yourself and be able to identify when you are starting to slip down a bad path You have to be proactive about your health All those things can t be over looked enough Dealing with depression or any mental illness isn t a quick fix There are no over night solutions It s about understanding who you are what you deal with and how you can best handle it You can be very successful and very happy as a person living with a mental illness but it s on you to really believe that to be true and to make it happen There aren t any short cuts unfortunately When you do speaking engagements how do you stay relaxed with all the busy ness When I go to do speaking engagements I try to block myself off from everything until after I ve talked Before I go on stage I m usually hiding out in my hotel room or in a back stage area somewhere hoping no one sees me I just don t have the energy to talk to anyone or do anything until I have finished my talk It s kind of weird because I don t really get nervous at all anymore but I just know I need to save up all my energy for that hour on stage It s actually pretty exhausting physically and mentally After I give a talk usually all I can think about doing is getting back to bed and watching movies on Netflix
