In this controversial conversation with Michael S, he shares how he hopes and believes that there may just be a CURE for addiction and mental health. Michael has been in a variety of 12 Step fellowships over the last 8 years. His primary fellowship is AA. Currently, he is most active in SLAA and CODA. Michael's favorite topic to talk on is Emotional Sobriety. He has been practicing as a licensed psychotherapist and life coach for the past 20 years. He and his family live in the Southwestern Suburbs of Chicago.
Reco12 is an organization with the mission of learning and sharing the similarities of addiction of all kinds and gaining and sharing tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. We come together from all places, faiths ,and backgrounds to gain tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. Speakers from our past meetings have represented many fellowships and identify with addictions with such variety of alcoholism, drugs, food, sex, gambling, theft, co-dependency, and the anon groups. We invite recovering addicts with at least 1 year sobriety and who are actively working their recovery in their respective fellowships to share their experience, strength and hope on a live Zoom webinar, each Friday at 12:00 pm central time, for 20-25 minutes. Then, we, the live audience, get the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker for another 20-25 minutes.
Reco12 is a self-supporting service and we appreciate your help in keeping it that way. We gratefully accept contributions to help cover the costs of the Zoom platform, podcast platform, web hosting, and administrative costs.
