What’s your alternative?

Chris Prentiss from Passages Malibu has a problem with twelve-step programs, and when he joined us on the show recently that’s one of the things we talked about.

“You have to stand up there and say, ‘Hi. I’m So and So, and I’m an addict.’” Pause. “But what do addicts do? They use.” It’s a self-fulfilling label, depending.

Chris would know. Twelve-step programs were no match for his son, who used to be addicted to heroin, and that’s why the two men wrote The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure.

If you’re struggling with an addiction, please don’t let anyone tell you there’s only one way to approach recovery. Nothing works for everyone. That includes twelve-step programs.
