Hilarie Cash, PhD, the Founder of reSTART ,an five-year-old Internet Addiction Recovery Program in Fall City Washington joined Lon on October 7, 2014 to describe the need for internet and computer addictions and what her students need. She was especially proud of one of her graduates being interviewed for NBC's TODAY show, which increased phone calls of inquiry. Currently she works with young adult males, but this NBC program has encouraged her in plans to expand the program, or start new programs for adolescents and/or females, meeting what she sees as a growing need.

“The lack of sexual morality that pervades this society is all over the place, and the Orthodox community, no matter how traditional, is not immune from this, and it creates terrible problems,” Rabbi Barry Freundel said in the Washington Jewish Week. “ography and its accessibility is wrecking marriages. It’s two keystrokes away. You get on the computer, you hit the button twice and you’re there. I have not counseled a couple in any level of relationship in the last five years where ography hasn’t been an issue.”
Freundel was quoted in this article on September 17, 2014, only weeks before he was arrested on voyeurism charges.
Why is it that ography, particularly Internet ography, pervades modern life? Is it becoming an increasing threat to society?

Carol the Coach knows what damage Sexual Addiction can do to a relationship. To offset the damage she inteviews founder and Clinical Director of the Center for Relational Recovery in Leesburg Virginia, Michelle Mays LPC, CSAT who has over 13 years experience in providing individual, couples and group therapy to those struggling with sexual addiction, trauma and relationship issues.
Michelle is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist trained under Dr. Patrick Carnes. She is also trained in Post Induction Therapy by Pia Mellody for the treatment of relational trauma. Michelle is sought out as a writer, trainer and speaker on sexual addiction, partners of sex addicts, the developmental model of trauma treatment, and relationship issues. In addition, she mentors and supervises upcoming therapists.
Michelle will be talking about addiction as an attachment disorder (intimacy disorder) and the way in which addicts often attach to the substance or process they are using compulsively as a substitute for meaningful and consistent attachment in their relationships and the way that this is set up in childhood, and how recovery must address attachment and learning how to ‘do relationships’ if it is going to be successful long-term for the person.
Al-anon can help families trying to understand drug and alcohol addiction and get their loved ones to quit. Al-anon uses the 12 steps to teach family members about addiction and to train us to avoid enabling the addiction. We learn to love the addict but to HATE their addiction.
Members of Al-anon also act as sponsors who are readily available to answer any questions that come up while we're trying to help our loved ones to end their drug addiction. How do we get them to stop using and go into treatment is the most common problem that Al-anon helps us to understand and address.
This week on Recovery now we discus how Al-anon works and why we benefit from it if we attend.
For much of the past century, scientists studying drug abuse labored in the shadows of powerful myths and misconceptions about the nature of addiction. When scientists began to study addictive behavior in the 1930s, people addicted to drugs were thought to be morally flawed and lacking in willpower.
As a result of scientific research, we know that addiction is a disease that affects both the brain and behavior. We have identified many of the biological and environmental factors and are beginning to search for the genetic variations that contribute to the development and progression of the disease. Scientists use this knowledge to develop effective prevention and treatment approaches that reduce the toll drug abuse takes on individuals, families, and communities.
Dr. Nora Volkov is the director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse will teach us today about this important topic.
One of the most highly stigmatized illnesses an individual can have is addiction. With more people stepping out with success stories, we are finally seeing the wheels turn in a positive direction for change and acceptance...but the pushback is still there. Today on Mental Illness Matters, we are going to chat about the lies people believe about addicts. We are also going to talk about how tough it is for individuals with a dual diagnosis, meaning addiction plus a mental illness.
