EVNSQ was our first choice for some very specific reasons. First, many of us in recovery, more so in early recovery, think of ourselves as either being worse than or better than everyone else, which is one of the reasons why humility is such a big deal in 12-Step programs. It seems to be a zero-sum game we live by. At EVNSQ, we take a person where he’s at, regardless of what brought him to us or where he wants to go from here. Everyone is on an EVEN playing field, no better, and certainly, no worse. This is important to our philosophy because beginning treatment in the here-and-now allows a man to SQUARE up to his life, SQUARE up to those who love him, and most importantly, get SQUARE with himself.
