Twice I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Drew Pinsky, M.D. Today I saw him on TV offering interviews about addiction and well known singer. It reminds me of how precious recovery is, and how urgent it is that the public truly understand about the disease of addiction. This is not a time to judge or blame, but to love and accept. But when people struggle, sometimes relapse occurs. Addiction is Real - and so is Recovery. Promoting recovery is about getting back on track, using the tools that one has, surrounding oneself with a sober support friends and family, and living life each day. If you want to learn how to help people with alcohol or other drug problems, come to class. Get involved. Recovery is Real.
