First Time Here?
If you haven’t heard, Maintaining Miracles is the place to be. A blog specifically for women in recovery, discussing every aspect of recovery, and working to create a sober life that people will admire. Here we keep it real and raw. Just the way life is.
My name is Natasha and I am the proud woman (mother, wife, and recovering addict) who created the blog, Maintaining Miracles. Maintaining Miracles began as a recovery blog for mothers and moms-to-be that are in the methadone maintenance program. Yet, there was so much more I wanted to say. There is more to me than a recovering heroin addict that got clean and has an amazing life thanks to MMT (methadone maintenance treatment).
If you are here, there’s a reason for it. You are either a recovering addict, in active addiction, or a loved one of an addict. This is the perfect place for you. It means you are looking for something, for some type of help. There’s nothing better than that my dear.
As a little treat because you are truly amazing for taking the time to be here, listen to the above song while reading the rest of this or simply take a moment and watch it. It hits home for me. As I’m sure it will resonate in the same way for you.
So, what is Maintaining Miracles? How will my blog help you? Why should you subscribe? Right now, I will answer all of those questions and give you a bit more.

Real Life – Self Care, Sober Living, Career, Life at Home
Addiction & Recovery – Methadone, Treatment Options, Heroin, Coping Skills, Relapse Triggers, etc
Parenting in Recovery – Parenting is not an easy task, to begin with. As a mom or dad, you constantly worry you’re not doing it right. You have no clue how many people I thought were supermoms. Come to find out, they pop pills all day to be able to accomplish it all and deal with the stress. We do it sober. Without pills, without a nightcap, without a joint, a hit of crack, a line of dope, or a glass of wine. Does anyone know why mamas are wine drinkers now? When did that happen? Gross.
Wreckage of the Past – Relationships, legal issues, finances, all the damage we have caused in our past. It doesn’t go away, folks. At least now we are in a better state of mind to deal with it. You will never be able to change the past but, you can learn from it, grow, amend it, and never repeat it.
Real Women – Feminism, real talk, the issues that we face as women. Sorry guys. I’m a mama so, it gotta be this way.

Why is the blog named Maintaining Miracles?
It’s quite simple to explain actually. I am a recovering addict, you are well aware of this already. Throughout, my attempts of recovery, I have tried every treatment option in existence. This time I chose to get clean. So for the second time, I entered the methadone maintenance program.
Methadone is one of the most if not the most important tools in my recovery. I MAINTAIN my sobriety, MAINTAIN my sober life.
The second part, Miracles. My children, my sobriety, my entire existence on this planet is nothing short of a MIRACLE.
I work every day of my life at Maintaining this wonderful life full of absolute MIRACLES. That being said, I feel this blog is very appropriately named. Thank you.
