Whilst fully endorsing a Harm Reduction approach to the treatment of chronic dependencies and acknowledging the threshold to total abstinence may be too high for some individuals, Paul is a big fan of the self help 12 step communities be they AA, NA, GA, Al-ANon, ACOA and the support and personal development program they offer.
