a loss for words...

while i have been doing much reading,
my posting has been lacking.

we have the opportunity to open a rehab facility
in our town.
much of my time has been spent formulating
a business plan.
this has been a dream of mine for years.

this will be a test of my practice of knowing
when to hold up, and when to fold up.

my previous attempt was thwarted by the
property owner who reneged on our deal.

time (& money) will tell if this is meant to be.

Well for me, the 12 steps HAVE been a form of behavior modification. And it takes being thoroughly honest with oneself which is very hard to do I think and may account for those who don't "get it". Not sure what other behavior modification methods your referring to. I know that I truly do not have control of my life. I have turned that over. Does that mean I sit back and do nothing? Of course not, I am required to take action. But I feel a guidance that I did not have before. You probably know the quote better than I: "Rarely have we seen a person fail who have throroughly followed our path" and "Half measure availed us nothing. We stood at the turning point..."

Anyway, thanks for the comment. I appreciate your blog and insight. Good luck with the rehab. I'm interested in the concept of sober housing. Working in one that is.

excerpt from comment;

It warns that the organization has the "potential to become a breeding ground for predatory behaviour".
Although AA holds its creed of anonymity sacrosanct, there is admission of a general acknowledgment of abuse within AA, and that the organization will be unable to duck exposure of such abuse. The organization says it will not protect members from the law.

A spokeswoman for AA yesterday confirmed the leaked document was genuine, but refused to comment further.
