I really enjoyed Bill White’s post today. It’s a collection of quick takes on several issues.
His willingness to address the moral dimensions of recovery are sure to provoke thought:
Recovery must be as morally redemptive as addiction is morally corrupting, as connective as addiction is alienating. . .
On being a fellow traveler:
What we can offer of greatest value is our presence and our acceptance of another person’s suffering. Then and only then can we offer our own story. . .

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work.
Views expressed here are my own.
Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time.
