Welcome - One Day at a Time

What is a pink cloud? In early sustained recovery from alcohol or drugs, the pink cloud is kind of a natural high.  It's the feeling that everything is going to be alright and I feel great. It typically occurs in people in early sobriety or clean time and there's no way to tell how long it will last.

What is a pink cloud?

But one thing we do know - the pink cloud doesn't last forever. The Pink Cloud starts happening when someone stops doing what is holding them back, makes some changes and starts feeling good about themselves again.  It is a well known phenomenon. It's a very good thing.

The Pink Cloud can be very motivating. For a while it helps you keep a positive attitude that can sustain you as you grow in your recovery. It feels like a fog is lifting as you get past years of scary problems and negative life experiences. It feels very good. It's a gift in early recovery.

The Pink Cloud is also the signal to start seriously working on creating your own stable, sober way of life so you can keep moving ahead.  It's a clue to put your energy and thoughts in finding ongoing support and figure out how you want to participate in your recovery.

You know you want to be a better you. Pink Cloud Therapy can offer you a safe, confidential, stigma-free space to be your authentic self and explore your concerns without judgment.  That's why we are here for you.
