A Personal Journey: Why Every Person’s Path to Recovery Is Different
Since 1939, the 12-step program has been a favored means of treating not only drug abuse and alcoholism but compulsion and addiction as well.

Redefining What Holistic Addiction Recovery Really Means
It’s not just a buzzword, but a way to create real and lasting change. Everyone has heard of the traditional 12-step program for alcohol and drug rehabilitation.
