People in the recovery process are sensitive to what is said to them. As a matter of fact, they will pay attention to the tone of your voice and how you say it. They wont take shouting or criticism lightly. The chances for such people in the recovery process of going back to addiction are usually high. Any slight discouragement can send them back to addiction. Therefore, always talk in a way that shows you have confidence in what they are doing and even when they go wrong, correct them in a friendly manner.

Do not ask a person who is undergoing treatment or who has graduated from a recovery plan how long they have been sober. It is a sensitive question to ask as it may appear invasive or even mocking to the person in spite of the intentions. For patients recovering from alcohol addiction, the chances of a relapse are high as they tend to struggle with issues of shame and self-esteem. They are educating themselves about the life skills needed for a healthy sober life. Instead of asking questions on soberness, enquire on their progress and offer lots of encouragement.

Do not ask a question that touches on when he or she will stop attending their regular meetings. Though the question might seem innocent, a patient might read judgment and a sign of you giving up on him or her. Try to offer encouragement on why the patient should continue attending the meetings. Any sign of negativity might make the patient view the meetings as a form of punishment and not treatment. Instead, make the patient see how fortunate he or she is to have enrolled in such a great program.

Though this might seem extreme, never tell a patient on the recovery program that you know how he or she feels. Unless you have successfully gone through a treatment program and emerged victorious, never tell a patient that you know how he or she feels because you do not. Instead, make assuring statements like you are always there for the patient and you will stand by his or her side throughout the process. Such a statement is more practical and sincere. It will be easier for the patient to connect with your sincerity, as opposed to a case where you are issuing statements just to make the addict feel better.

Do not ask whether a patient is fully recovered from the addiction of any drug. Challenging a person on recovery usually discourages them from making the expected progress, as they will start second guessing themselves. Instead, offer to accompany them to their therapy sessions so you could learn more about what they are going through.

Making an effort to attend a meeting with your family member in recovery is usually a huge boost in accelerating their full recovery. Though such a gesture may seem small, the patient will often see it as your sign of faith in their ability to break free.

Telling the person on a recovery process that you think he or she has a problem is not wise. The patient is highly skilled at hiding his or her problems and challenges. Hence, when you appear judgmental, you are limiting the patient’s ability to open up to you. Instead, express your confidence in his or her ability to overcome the challenges she or he is facing. However, don’t delve on how difficult it is to attain full recovery. You might make it tough for the patient to overcome his or her challenges.

Never ask “can’t you just stop taking this or that?” If a person in the recovery process has confided to you that they are on their way to recovery, take their word for it. Asking such questions might discourage them as they might think they are taking too long and they might not break away from addiction.

Cabaret Loses The West Bank Cafe and Laurie Beechman Theatre

Published

on

The West Bank Cafe and the Laurie Beechman theatre are closing their doors in August.

The West Bank Cafe opened in 1978. The restaurant’s early clients even included the notorious Irish gang, the Westies. The neighborhood was rough. In 1980, The New York Times awarded West Bank two stars, which increased its visibility and attracted a wider range of diners. 
In this era, West Bank Cafe’s owner, Steve Olsen opened the Laurie Beechman Theatre downstairs from the Cafe, which staged plays and hosted events nightly. A young Lewis Black was named playwright-in-residence; Howard Stern aired his third-annual live birthday broadcast from the theater; and the restaurant’s regulars included Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller and Bruce Willis, among others.

Soon the redevelopment of 42nd Street spread further west, bringing new businesses and residents to the area. Throughout the 1980s and ’90s, the restaurant was a leader in the growing Theater District and Hell’s Kitchen dining scenes. As new theaters opened in the area, the restaurant’s connection to stage and screen remained strong as well. The Laurie Beechman Theatre continued to regularly stage the work of emerging writers, actors, and singers (many of whom later became stars) as well as established acts: The Who even gave four live performances at the restaurant while their musical Tommy was running on Broadway.

After 45 years, the restaurant’s surrounding neighborhood and America’s culinary tastes have changed dramatically. West Bank Cafe has evolved along with the neighborhood and maintained a commitment to serving high-quality food in a unpretentious setting where both theater-goers and theatre stars feel at home.

In 2020 the West Bank was likely to close imminently as it faced mounting debts and a steep drop-off in customers due to COVID. By Tuesday, though, there was an online fundraiser had raised more than $330,000, shooting past its initial goal of $250,000. Donations came pouring in thanks to Tom D’Angora, a Broadway producer and longtime customer. But things took off on Christmas Day, thanks to a star-studded, nine-hour telethon, featuring speeches and performances by Sean Penn, Nathan Lane, Pete Townshend, Debra Messing, Andre De Shields and dozens more performers who have called themselves West Bank regulars during its 42-year history.

The money raised allowed Olsen to pay off the cafe’s debts and save some cash for the future. Sadly it seems 2024 might be the end.

Legal Representation for Your Auto Accident Lawsuit: How They Can Help

Published

on

By

Being in a car accident can be scary and stressful, but you don’t have to handle the legal stuff by yourself. Think about having a professional on your side who could help you get through the court system and fight for the money you deserve.

Your auto accident lawsuit can be helped by a lawyer. Know that a professional is working hard for you if you hire the right lawyer. This will give you peace of mind and the strength to face the problems that lie ahead. Fasten your seat belts, and let’s look at how lawyers can ease this tough path.

Experience and Expertise

The experience and knowledge that lawyers bring to your car accident victim case is one of the main benefits of having one. They know how the justice system works and can easily get around its many complicated parts. Their specific understanding of personal injury law is very important if you want to improve your chances of winning.

Legal Support and Guidance

A case over a car accident can be hard on the mind and emotions. Getting a lawyer is important because they can help and guide you. They talk to the insurance companies, help with paperwork, and advise on what to do next.

Negotiation Skills

In most cases, auto accident lawsuits end up being settled outside of court through settlement negotiations between lawyers and insurance companies. Having a skilled lawyer negotiating on your behalf can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. They know how to present evidence, highlight key points, and negotiate for a fair settlement that covers all of your damages.

Courtroom Representation

If your case does go to trial, having legal representation is crucial. Your lawyer will act as your advocate in court, presenting your case and fighting for your rights. They know how to navigate the courtroom, from proper procedures to building a strong defense against any opposing arguments.

Contingency Fee Arrangements

Several auto accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they receive payment only if your case is successful. This eliminates any upfront costs for you and ensures that your lawyer is fully invested in the success of your case. It also offers peace of mind knowing that your lawyer will work tirelessly to secure a favorable outcome.

Peace of Mind

One of the key benefits of having legal representation for your auto accident lawsuit is the peace of mind it provides. Dealing with an auto accident can be emotionally taxing, but having a lawyer on your side can reduce stress and help you focus on recovery.

Choosing the right lawyer means finding one who is familiar with the local laws and regulations that will impact your case. By selecting personal injury lawyers in Opa Locka, you can benefit from their understanding of the local jurisdiction and their established relationships with local courts and professionals.

Take the First Step Towards Justice in Your Auto Accident Lawsuit

Having a lawyer help you with your auto accident lawsuit can make things a lot easier and improve your chances of getting a good result. A skilled lawyer can be very helpful on your trip, whether it’s because they know how to handle complicated legal issues, are good at negotiating, or give you peace of mind by working for you.

After a car accident, don’t handle the fallout by yourself. Get professional help and start the process of getting justice and the money you deserve.
