    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    I thought this could fit into a bunch of sections on the site... so I put it in WC where I thought the most of us would see it! I hope this goes through. It is an Article from PsychiatryMatters. Which is a great site to join...

    Let's see if it will let me link it?

    It worked for me when I clicked on it, you have to scroll down a little to get to it.
    I really found it interesting due to the high level of addiction in my family and anxiety disorders... I do not have the addiction issues but I do have the Anxiety. I am a firm believer in CBT though.

    This just reinforces my belief that 12-step programs will ultimately fail unless the underlying mental illness is treated FIRST.
