In this month’s issue (July 2009), be sure and check out the article about the Journeys book entitled “Wisdom from the Mouths of Babes“.  I especially appreciate everyone at the Institute for allowing me to be a Contributing Editor for this month’s newsletter and calling attention to the issue of end-of-life care from a framework of recovery. 

Best wishes to everyone on a journey of recovery.  Melody
