George W Bush Discusses Recovery

George Bush’s recovery from alcoholism should show us that getting help in a treatment program for addiction or alcoholism is not something to be ashamed of. Call our drug rehab for help with alcoholism.

Who says you can’t still do great things even after going to rehab??

George Bush became very emotional and opened up about his alcoholism to a group of people attending a speech he was making at the Jericho Program in Maryland on Tuesday, January 29th, 2008. The Jericho program is a faith based community service program that helps men re-enter society after leaving prison.

George Bush has been sober since his 40th birthday and had to reach out for the help of a faith based program. During his speech he also made reference to the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

“Addiction is hard to overcome. As you might remember, I drank too much at one time in my life,” said Bush, who has often stated that religion became a greater part of his life after he gave up alcohol.

“I understand faith-based programs. I understand that sometimes you can find the inspiration from a higher power to solve an addiction problem,” he said.

George Bush has become increasingly vocal about his struggles with alcoholism, also
talking frankly with struggling group of young addicts who he hosted in the White House in December. George Bush’s date of sobriety is July 6th, 1986.
