when you describe your experiences, it does not sound like what you are hearing is the solution as offered by the program of AA.
in addition to checking out refuge recovery, you could also see if you can find some solution-focused meetings.
and i would encourage you to check out the AVRT threads in the secular recovery forums farther down to see if that is useful to you.
i appreciate the input and advice. I will definitely check out the avrt threads as well. I donít ever want to speak bad of AA. it has done wonders for me along with many others that Iíve met. Everyoneís experience is different and I do want to make the right choices. Thank you!
