two spiritual communities - 12-Step Recovery and New Thought.
I have read this provocative article by Stanton Peele a few times, each time finding parts with which I agree, and many with which I could not disagree more. Maybe I don’t understand what he means by “natural recovery from addiction.” Are his 12 Concepts of Recovery a play against the 12 Steps of Recovery that work for me and for many? Certainly each of his 12 Concepts is encompassed in my personal recovery program – which also includes 12 Step work, and a consistent and deepening relationship with my higher power…. what could be more natural than that?
