Okay, so here's the deal. I've got a little recovery, clean time, sobriety...however you choose to say it - I haven't used drugs or had alcohol in 18 years, 8 months and an odd number of days. I walked into a 12-step meeting after 'hitting my bottom' (which almost killed me) - I'm grateful. To my friends in the groups, my sponsor - you know who you are and I love you. 12 steps have worked for me - it's my answer. But you all also know that there are many people out there it HAS NOT worked for. They still can't stop, especially with alcohol readily available at every convenience store and dive bar 20 hours a day. It kills lots of them - lots. I'm not smarter or better or stronger than any of them...it just doesn't work for everyone....not even close. You all know how it tears people apart - marriages, families, careers, lives - not everyone survives. There is more collateral damage done by alcohol than all the drug cartels and dope dealers combined. So, there's this huge 100 BILLION dollar-a-year racket built up around the revolving door of court referrals, rehab facilities, insurance and a guaranteed recidivism rate of 90%. That's right, the success rate of 12-Step programs, even after multiple attempts is only 10%. I'm lucky. It took. I'm grateful. But for for every person like me, there are 9 people it hasn't worked for, and dozens (or hundreds) who have never seen a meeting. So, do we just repeat the ritual, "Keep Coming Back"? What if there was something that worked sixty or seventy percent of the time? Would you encourage a friend or loved to try it...if it might save their life? This medical solution saved Claudia's life after rehabs and 12 steps and all the stuff that helped me almost killed her. Pass this on...we all know somebody. This has the potential to save thousands of lives every year, and isn't that the point of medicine? Thanks Claudia, Jen and all the rest who continue to devote themselves to helping...in any way possible. This well-made documentary presents a compelling argument that will change your thinking about the abstinence- only sacred cow of recovery.
