For many years, Dr. Kominars has been actively involved with playwriting. His play about homophobia, "Sweet Mystery," was presented in a dramatic reading on April 24, 2001, at Venue 9 in San Francisco. It was also selected as a finalist in the Eureka New Plays competition in 1999. He is hoping it will be produced soon. In February, 2001, Dr. Kominars began doing workshops for cancer survivors at UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco. Previously, he has lectured and given workshops all over the U.S. and abroad on alcohol and drug recovery issues and creativity. Beginning in June, 2001, and continuing throughout the year, "Write For Life" will be offered at Kaiser Permanente and at the Hormel Center of the San Francisco Public Library. The program invites participants to explore through journal writing the experience of what it means to live through each day recovering from cancer and other life-threatening crises (HIV, AIDS, etc.). Dr. Kominars has been writing journals for 45 years and is, since June, 2000, an "advertisement" for early detection of cancer. He is available as a lecturer and workshop facilitator.

Format: Paperback
As the director of a gay and lesbian treatment center we have made this book our "basic text". Every new admit is given this book to read and the workbook format is excellent for working the steps. It replaces the traditional 12 Step Big Books and our own written step materials. We now have a book that puts it all into one: how sexual identity issues affect compulsive and addictive behaviors with concrete ways to recover from this destructive behavior.
