Clinical Psychologist Dr. E. Douglass Brown will be our guest today.  His statement on Co-Dependency and Addictions is this:  "Substance abuse or addiction is co-dependency compounded. An addict depends almost exclusively on chemistry to engage the world, to ward off demons in the mind, to hold the sense of security hostage, and to attract companions. The addict depends on the source of the drug to supply it, depends on the drug to bring delight and relief, depends on others to rescue the addict when the abuse brings castatrophe, and depends on someone to believe the addict each time the addict cries, 'Never again!'"
