1. so the difference tween NA Sponsor & "Drug Peer Counselor"

seems to be pay. The DCP from the radio article is getting paid from grants, & will be getting paid from Medicaid money come summer. The article was from Lima Ohio up the road ~75 miles. It was pretty good, but said nothing about NA or 12 step groups.

2. People recover in many ways...

If the "Drug Peer Counselor" works for some..ok..I have heard over and over.......

Whatever works....eventually most need the 12 step groups, but some could do it with a single counselor.. didn't work for me. But..what works, works...
