Social Issues: Letters

To: Behavioral Healthcare Tomorrow

I received "Behavioral Healthcare Tomorrow" and noted the article "Fully Embracing Recovery." I did not see any mention of the spiritual dimension, however. I ask that you check out Minnesota Teen Challenge -- which despite its name, treats adults as well. It can be found at on the web. They go beyond a nebulous "Higher Power" to promoting a personal relationship with the God who created us. And they have a phenomenal sucess rate. Your readers would be very interested in an article on their methods.
