By way of introduction I live in Pueblo CO and am working with community leaders to offer TSM as a treatment option in local recovery facilities as well as the criminal justice system. It's early days and these wheels turn slowly but District Attorney Jeff Chostner had already introduced Vivitrol into the mix and his eyes lit up a couple of months ago when I told him about TSM.
We've met twice since then (once with a County Commissioner who is one of the DA's proteges) and our next step is to meet with the powers that be at a major recovery facility here in town... here's hoping!
I attended hundreds of AA meetings after I first tried to get sober beginning September 2015. Unfortunately, even though I was able to reduce my drinking to intermittent binges (only after many lengthy relapses) AA was not the solution for me and I severely injured my neck during my last blackout in early April 2018.
If I'd only known about TSM I might well have been able to avoid two subsequent surgeries and having permanent physical issues resulting from my injury. But that ship sailed and now I devote a substantial part of my time to trying to spread the word about this wonderful cure.
From my first couple of AA meetings I recognized the immense power of face to face fellowship. ISTM that unless we develop similar community support structures it will slow widespread adoption of TSM.
Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed - thanks in advance.
