Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Bo Budinsky, of Rhode Island, a survivor of child abuse. Mr Budinsky is a volunteer, activist and public speaker with a focus on how child sexual abuse (CSA) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) effects recovery from drugs and alcohol. "My life is the stuff movies are made of," says Bo in a YouTube appearance. He was repeatedly violated by multiple men and women, including by a therapist he went to for help. Addiction, shattered relation ships and failed careers followed. Mr Budinsky has worked hard for many years to get through the dark journey that was his life, and to emerge as a successful example of the miracle that can happen once a person enters into recovery. Bo was also one of the 200 men who appeared on two, hour-long Oprah Winfrey shows in late 2010 by way demonstrating that child sexual abuse isn't only an issue for little girls but that it effects many little boys, too. Now Bo travels around the country, speaking to groups and making appearances whenever he's asked.
