Holiday Warning!


Holidays are more stressful for families
struggling with an addicted loved one

Why? Because most of us realize that family gatherings are both special and important. These are times when most of us will go out of our way to say “I love you”.

The warning I’m speaking about refers to a select few organizations who try to take advantage of hurting people.

You may have noticed several recent TV and radio ads touting various “addiction cures.”

There is a solution and a way to manage addiction–but there is NO CURE.


Holiday WarningBeware of anyone who tells you otherwise.

It saddens me to know that there are hurting families who are even more emotionally and financially drained–by false claims.

Please know that alcoholism and drug addiction are manageable problems. There is hope. And many, many people begin the journey called recovery every day.

    I almost bought the book about the son that tried the 12 step and it didn’t work. Bought his father’s book and got it.. I just wanted to see how much b.s. was in the book… There are legitimate people out there.. You are one I trust. And Terry Gorski is another… Other than that I stay in the book that has worked since 1935…Thanks Joe..

    Do NOT click on anything that says “3-Day Addiction Cure”

    It is a scam and is almost impossible to get it off your computer. I had posted the link here as an example of what NOT to get involved in and have just now managed to get it off my computer!!!! Believe me. . . stay away from the word “CURE”!!!
