Twelve Step programs promote a comprehensive lifestyle of recovery. To halt addiction, it is essential that family, friends, and employers recognize addiction and intervene actively. Recovery means living free of the use of alcohol and other drugs, having healthy self-worth, and maintaining sound relationships with family, community, and one’s Higher Power. Recovery means being honest. – excerpt from The Selfish Brain: Learning from Addiction (1997) – Robert L. DuPont, M.D.
