Tangled in Addiction

Addictions are a reality in the lives of many today. How do we get out of them?
Mary Cook, an experienced counselor-psychiatrist, discusses all this with Fr. Mike. She explains that addictions are like chasing after false gods. They take over our lives. Part of us does the chasing and the other part is ashamed and wants to stop. Addictions speak loudly, but then there’s this little voice – called grace — that says to us “You may not want to do this.” Mary Cook, the author of Grace, Lost and Found, speaks about the internal work that needs to be done, and that we don’t have to do it alone. In the course of the show, Fr. Mike and Mary talk about the place of dreams and how to work with the “inner child” within us to bring about true and lasting healing.
