Do you look forward to September because life returns to that comfortable normal pace? Before you get too cozy getting back into your routine, I ask you to recognize September as National Recovery Month.
Addiction is embedded in our society affecting every family and every community. Confronting and defeating addiction is the most important challenge facing our society today.
For National Recovery Month, AFAR’s focus is on sexual addiction. Questions and misinformation about sexual addiction have been in the news all summer — between Ozzy Osbourne, former Rep. Anthony Weiner and Ret. Army Major General David Haight there’s been much to talk about.
Just as an alcoholic’s relationship with alcohol is more important than any relationship or anything; a distorted, mood-altering relationship with sex becomes central to the sex addict. As with any addiction, these addict’s secret lives become more important and real than their public lives.
