About the Author
Mr. Peterson is a licensed chemical dependency counselor. He initiated a number of special techniques and programs in the Texas prison system to assist inmates in recovery issues, not only alcohol and drugs, but gambling, food and other addictions. He found that despite all of the recovery programs around, all of the self-help books, accessible therapists and programs, the ordinary person in recovery, and sponsors, have trouble finding complete, useable and trustworthy step guides to work through privately and successfully. His autobiography will be published soon, describing some of these techniques, while explaining the search for meaning in his life. He currently lives in Texas and still works with people in recovery.
