Take 12 Recovery Radio presents:
(Solutions for Life, Today)

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Twelve Step support meetings, recovery groups and group therapy sessions commonly have a strict policy of “What you hear here, who you see here, let it stay here when you leave here”, however, sometimes what is said in a group or meeting setting doesn’t always stay in that setting. On today’s show, we discuss confidentiality in support group settings, the problems, and policies of these groups and the importance of wisdom while sharing.

QUIT YELLING, I CAN’T SEE MYSELF (Distractions in Recovery)

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Have you ever been yelled at until you couldn’t see straight? Those of us in recovery understand the yelling that comes from the voices of our active addiction, our self-centered egos and the worldly clamors that attempt to drown out our recovery practices. On this week’s show, we explore those things that can easily become the distractions that can pull us away from our focus on what’s truly important, our recovery program. ​

Take 12 Recovery Radio presents:

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Tom was homeless, a meth addict and on a downward spiral going nowhere fast. Tom was full of shame and trapped in the delusion that there was no way out. He had nowhere to go and had not a clue of what to do until an X-con spoke the truth of recovery through Christ into his life. Shortly after that Nicky Cruz, the former leader of the New York street gang the Mau Maus also spoke into Tom’s life. What was to happen from there would change Tom’s life forever. Recovery was not just a destination for Tom, but it has been a wonderful journey. Tune in and listen to Tom’s story of experience, strength and hope. Now Tom serves others as the Public Relations Coordinator at the Tucson Men’s Induction Center, Teen Challenge of Arizona.

ABOUT THIS SHOW: What have you learned from your Significant Other while in recovery?

For those of us who have been on our own while in our active addictions, things would begin to look very different once we experienced sobriety and recovery. At some point in our recovery journey, we may have developed a relationship with a Significant Other, a wife, a husband, or a partner. Even if we were in a relationship during our active dysfunction things are going to look very different now that we are in recovery. We asked the question, “What have you learned from your Significant Other while in recovery? Join Dave Fleming and the Monty’man as they discuss this week’s topic on this episode of Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life, Today).

Meth Can’t Stand Up to God

Take 12 Radio presents

Imagine being under the influence and controlled by methamphetamine for 14 years. Would you steal from your family to get your drugs? Would you threaten others in order to feed your addiction? Would you miss important events in your life and the life of those who love you? What would happen if you were confronted? How would you respond. Would you be willing to get help or would you turn a deaf eye to the problem and come close to death?
Meet Phil. These are questions that our guest on this episode of the Victory report could answer with no hesitation. Don’t miss this testimony of experience, strength and hope as we bring to you another powerful Victory Report from Teen Challenge of Arizona.
