Dual Program Members – 326

Are you a member of more than one recovery program? How do you balance them? How do they support each other?

Listeners and members of more than one recovery program share their experience. We hear from members of

  • Al-Anon
  • Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
  • Overeaters Anonymous (OA)
  • Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA)
  • Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA)
  • Codependents Anonymous (CODA)
  • Debtors Anonymous

They share how their programs meet different needs and aspects of their recovery. How they support each other.

My thanks to all of you for your honesty, openness, and courage.
