Rules of Recovery
Delbert Boone outlines the "rules of recovery," emphasizing the importance of getting dry so that one can begin to realize what addiction has taken from their life, and also so that one can begin to focus attention on their physical and safety needs. He reminds the audience that getting dry is an event and sobriety is a process. He discusses that process in this program. Boone says there is no magic in recovery; all a person needs to do is learn to comply, because sobriety is about complying and learning to follow the laws, rules and regulations of life. He also addresses the importance of focusing on making today just a little bit better than yesterday.
