The AA and NA programs are ‘We’ programs. Perhaps some of us have tried to stop drinking or using drugs on our own – with promises, vows, solemn oaths, determination, willpower, and the list goes on… It is this writer’s experience that the ‘Lone Ranger’ approach to staying clean and sober (recovery) seldom, if ever works. (Heh, remember – even the Lone Ranger had Tonto…) However, if there are certain areas of your life, childhood, youth, marriage, etc. that you would rather discuss in private the opportunity for individual counseling sessions is most certainly available to and for you. Meet with your counselor and an appropriate time will be made available and scheduled.
