A note on this site's authorship: is written by a recovering alcoholic, and the information here is based on my own experiences in recovery and a great deal of reading and research into addiction and recovery. This site is based on the medical model of addiction as a treatable disease.

I went through a treatment program when I got sober, and I continue to practice a twelve step program. In my opinion both of these approaches to recovery have merit - they have worked for many people. Die hard 12 step members may find these pages too "medical" for their tastes, and some medical professionals may find them too "twelve-steppy."

So be it - this recovery site is intended to present resources, not as the last word in these matters. Please note that I am not a counselor, and cannot and will not offer personal advice or consutation.
