Do you know an addict or an alcoholic? Is it your son, daughter or spouse? Is it you? Or perhaps you have lost power over something else such as depression, anger, food, sex or gambling? There are few words that can describe the pain that a loss of power causes - the toll it takes on our minds, hearts and spirits, the endless ripple effects and the victims that lie in its wake. Shouldn't those we love feel the relief and the freedom that the recovered have procured for themselves? And don't we all deserve access to these powerful and life-changing tools? Anybody can lose power and therefore anybody can take steps.
