A SPIRITUAL PATHWAY TO RECOVERY FROM ADDICTION
is the memoir of a group of physicians working their way through rehab for drugs and alcohol. As they proceed on a course of personal self-discovery, they shared their frustration, their anger, and their fear. They were at the absolute low point of their life, and all they worked for is rapidly going down the drain. They didn’t want to be here, but if they are to have a life, it must start now.
A SPIRITUAL PATHWAY
Foremost was the idea that living by spiritual principles would solve all their problems, including dependence on drugs and alcohol. Wrapping their heads around this new way of thinking was not easy. To embrace this concept required a thorough psychological house cleaning. Old ideas and behaviors that fueled their using had to go. New ideas about their relationship with a Higher Power and their fellows were needed. It was the beginning of a process that must last a lifetime.
