What About the "Disease Concept" of Addiction ?Premium Content

Q: Doesn't the promotion of the "disease concept" help addicts avoid taking responsibility for their behavior?

A: The only people I've ever heard use the "disease concept" as an excuse are practicing alcoholics who have no real intention of changing. I hear something totally different from Rescue Mission counselors and other professionals who subscribe to what has been called the "clinical approach" to treatment and recovery.

Sexual Disorders InformationPremium Content

Gender Identity Disorder
Gender Identity Disorder is where a persons anatomical sex and their gender identity conflict. This is also called transsexualism. In this disorder, there is a desire to be rid of one's own gender appropriate anatomy and to live as a person of the opposite gender. These people often, but not always, cross-dress to be in line with their gender identity. Increasingly, numbers of those with this disorder are choosing surgical interventions.

The Stages of Recovery

(from: "Don't Call It Love" by Patrick Carnes)

    1. Developing: preconscious awareness of needing help; may be traced back to childhood when there was an awareness that something was wrong or out of control
    2. Crisis/Decision: Need to reach bottom followed by intervention; usually needs to be spouse and/or a group of people confronting them. A good intervention will include a recovering addict who can share his/her recovery story.

Ten Helpful Tips for a Successful RecoveryPremium Content

1) Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop this picture. Never think of yourself as failing; never doubt the reality of the mental image. That is most dangerous, for the mind always tries to complete what it pictures. So always picture "success" no matter how badly things seem to be going at the moment.

2) Whenever a negative thought concerning your personal powers come to mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.
