Dealing with Substance Abuse

Alcoholics Anonymous is an intimate group of more than 2 million members.

The only requirement for joining this club is the desire to stop drinking.

There are no dues or fees and it is not connected to any other organization, political or religious.

The club's primary purpose is to help its members stay sober and to help other alcoholics do the same.

What makes Alcoholics Anonymous work is in the name.

The vow of anonymity, that is perhaps where its members find the most comfort.

Rob Thornhill understands how bad an addiction can be, but also knows how anyone can recover.

He is an addictions counselor with Bradford Health Services.

Thornhill has worked in the substance abuse and addictions field for more than 10 years, and it's mainly because of his own personal journey.

Watch the video extras to hear his story.

There is also a special event coming to the stage about Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, coming to Montgomery.

The public is invited to these presentation.

It will be held Thursday, July 19th at Governor's House Hotel from 6-8pm.
