Addiction and Alcoholism with Chris Schroeder
Few people are better at explaining the mechanics of the 12 step spiritual recovery process. Treatment so often consists of clinical processes that have developed over the years and there is not adequate presentation of the spiritual process that has been shown to offer lasting recovery. One issue is that many counselors are not truly experienced with the process themselves so have an ineffective way of presenting it. Chris talks in a way everyone can understand, and hopefully be motivated to get their own experience with it and then have that experience available when it would be appropriate to deliver it to those who need it.
