‘Two-thirds of American families are either dealing with an addiction themselves or are affected by someone in their lives who has an addiction. That’s why I’m a big proponent of taking the stigma out of not just addiction but any kind of mental illness; otherwise, all those people won’t be willing to get help. For relapse prevention, people need to find ways to express their emotions, which have identifiable sensations inside the body and have to find a way out. These emotions are energy in motion. The nature of energy is movement. ‘
