Oftentimes people think that AA or NA is the only way out of their legal troubles and are truly unaware that they can have a say in the matter.
Amsterdam, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
The Saint Jude Retreats Program is excited to announce that on Thursday, November 14, 2013, the Saint Jude Retreats Radio Series will have guest host, Stanton Peele, Ph.D, J.D. on the show. The radio series, hosted by Executive Director, Michelle Dunbar, will discuss court mandated 12 step drug and alcohol treatment for those convicted in a substance related crime. Peele, an attorney and psychologist, will discuss his view on the subject. Saint Jude Retreats, which is an alternative to 12 step programs, can offer help to those in legal troubles related to substance use.
Stanton Peele, Ph. D., J.D., is a licensed attorney, psychotherapist and psychologist. He has written 9 books on the topics of addiction, alcoholism and 12 step treatments and educates that people can overcome alcohol without treatment or rehab. The show will be available to listeners through the Saint Jude Retreats BlogTalkRadio.com Channel as well as Facebook, Twitter, and the Saint Jude Retreats Blog beginning Tuesday, November 19, 2013.
Michelle Dunbar is excited to explore court mandated drug and alcohol treatment issues as the need for alternative programs grow. Dunbar quotes, “There is definite need for alternatives to treatment for those who have legal troubles regarding alcohol or even drugs. Oftentimes people think that AA or NA is the only way out of their legal troubles and are truly unaware that they can have a say in the matter. We are currently outreaching to attorneys and lawyers to educate them on alternatives for their clients that can actually turn out a solution to their substance use problem instead of further prolonging it.”
Currently the Saint Jude Retreats program is accepting questions to be answered on the Saint Jude Retreats Radio show. Anyone wishing to email a question to possibly be answered on the radio show can email mkluska(at)saintjuderetreats(dot)com.
