WATCHING ADDICTS DIE & STILL LITTLE TALK OF SPIRITUAL COMPONENT

My heart and soul go out to the grieving mother whose letter/plea was published in this newspaper but it is my observation that this heart-rending plea misses one important and, I believe, potentially significant point: many people, including myself, believe that addiction has a spiritual component. A co-founder of AA, for example, stated that recovery is based on maintaining your “spiritual condition.” In this long and pain-filled plea, there is not a whisper of that aspect of addiction and recovery. Spirituality is not the panacea either. But its omission from the conversation is potentially fatal.
