We will hear more about 12 step programs, how they work, and why they are considered the most universally successful fellowship programs that help addicts remain clean and sober. In wrapping up this program we will introduce other compulsive, self-destructive behaviors that are symptomatic of addictive disorders (obsession with gambling, food, sex) that seem to follow the same course as addiction to alcohol and drugs. In this program you meet Sandy W. and Roberto E., both in recovery for more than twenty-five years. Here the challenges and rewards of getting into and staying in recovery are explored.
