Show highlights:

1:35 We will be talking more about the recovery process from addiction in this show.

2:55 Dr. Marty reads an email from a woman who has a question about her husband, and his addiction. Her husband refuses counseling, or a 12 step program. What can she do? What really motivates people to change? What can be addressed when one person in a relationship goes to counseling?

7:43 More on the stages of recovery. Awareness and early acknowledgement. Consideration of recovery. We review our first counseling appointment with Ray, who is wondering if he should cut back on his drinking.

11:20 We talk to Ray, to help him get some insight on why he thinks he may need to change.

14:50 We look carefully at the 2nd stage of recovery – considering change.

17:10 The third stage of recovery happens when someone becomes actively involved in their recovery. Moving past denial and exploring recovery. What are the most important parts of this phase?

19:30 We talk about the last stage – active recovery and maintenance.

21:15 What should therapy focus on during the last stage of recovery? What options for treatment are available?

26:05 We talk about should somebody go to a hospital or retreat, or outpatient therapy?
