00000001Emotional & Spiritual Sobriety

Dr. Allen Berger & Herb Kaighan

Recovery follows three stages:

  • Getting clean & sober – physical sobriety
  • Staying clean & sober – emotional sobriety
  • Living clean & sober – spiritual sobriety


Staying clean & sober and living clean & sober are characterized by learning to have healthy relationships.


This presentation will help you have healthy relationships with yourself, others and “OTHER”, and to take ownership and full responsibility for your life.

Based upon Bill Wilson’s Grapevine Article “Emotional Sobriety” and The Big Book’s Twelve Step promise of a sustained “Spiritual Awakening”
