"The Many Parts of Recovery"

Andrew J Gordon

It’s important that editorials are responsible, not simply a dive into one’s own reflection, Narcissus - like, thinking one’s image magically superior, important in all circumstances. Personal reflection is hardly universal law. In private, many think there is one royal road for solving a personal problem. If she solved something; fine. But to make it a law-like pronouncement for us all, that’s another matter. It should give us pause. To simply associate the traditional rehabilitation with a painful and unproductive mode of treatment is senseless and simplistic. Often this breaking down of denial, getting people to “hit bottom” is just a
first phase in the process. After these harsh methods there may be expressions of love, support, dignity and empathy. Accepting powerlessness may be just a first step, opening the way to more kindly responses from others.
