Video: Challenging the Conventions of Addiction and Recovery

Friday, December 10th, 2010

In Review Show seven, George Williams talks to Peter Bentley, founder of Intuitive Recovery, a re-education or self-recovery method that doesn’t require treatment or long term support, and relies solely on the inner reserve of the individual.

The interview challenges conventional views on how addiction is characterised; is it an illness or a behaviour? Are those with addiction problems really powerless? Is it a life sentence or is it possible to be fully recovered and move on?

It raises some equally challenging questions on recovery and personal versus state responsibility to make a thought provoking debate that is sure to draw comment
