THIS MONTH'S FOCUS ON:
SPIRITUALITY AND ADDICTION
Spirituality is widely recognized as an important part of recovery from addiction, although this can sometimes become an obstacle for treatment clients who may not subscribe to this way of thinking.
Here's a short video that offers a unique perspective on the topic as well as a little history on how the concept of the "spiritual experience" became a central theme in the 12-Step recovery program.
Jim Savage has a rich history in helping young people explore spirituality and making this an effective part of their personal growth.
