Cross-addiction: The Back Door to Relapse

A clip from the Hazelden video entitled "Cross-addiction: The Back Door to Relapse." Cross-addiction is the single greatest relapse factor. Those who seek treatment generally have an honest desire to remain abstinent from alcohol or another drug of choice. Yet most can also name a drug they've tried that they consider "safe" for themselves, one they believe they can control. The full-length video features first-hand testimony from recovering alcoholics and addicts, chemical dependency professionals, and a medical doctor which dispel the myth that there is any such thing as a "safe" substance for people in recovery. The full-length program ends with a message of hope as the recovering individuals share the joys and triumphs complete abstinence brought to their lives.
