Great topic. Not only are those addicted touched by the illness, but the families. Medody Beatty is a writer who has published several books on codependency, which is the flip side of addiction...those people who love the addicted person. She would be a great person to interview. Also, come to Akron and hit the conference they have here every year in the town where AA was born. You will see an amazing cornucopia of people from every strata of society. Interviews on the street and walking the places where it all began may give you and your listeners a look at how and why we have come so far in the treatment and understanding of addiction. Best of luck to you in your work. Peace and Blessings. Deb
