Safe Recovery- is a new show designed to address Predatory behavior in 12 step meetings, and it's culture. Join us to discuss new approaches in our world, our culture with alcohol and drug overuse. "Empowerment" not "Powerless" is our slogan. We will discuss and explore alternatives to AA. We want to support men and women who have written new books on healing from alcohol dependency/drug overuse. Alternative healing, both spiritual and secular to create our better selves is what we are all about. Living Happy Lives, sober or with moderation. You choose...Americans need to step up and be more EMPOWERED! No more powerless modality.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Have you been raped by an AA member? Are you okay now? Did you report it? Why not? Were you in a rehab that was total 12 step nonsense. Did insurance pay thousands for AA meetings? Was your Blue Cross told about this fraud? Were you seeking real help and got "religion" instead? Have you wanted to do something to stop this and feel like " what can I do". Join Monica Richardson for a powerful 1 hour show, exposing the crimes that are occurring in AA today, in my city, in your city and no one is doing anything. We are. :) THe 13th Step the film exposes all of this.
