CHICAGO, Aug. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate National Recovery Month in September, Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center is hosting a free Webinar titled "Recovery: Breaking Through the Isolation of Addiction", 7 - 8 p.m. CDT on September 1, 2011.

"Addiction is a treatable illness and individuals can fully recover from it one day at a time for the rest of their lives," said Dr. Kim Dennis, host of the Webinar and medical director at Timberline Knolls. "People in recovery need help on a daily basis. As humans, we need to be connected to others in order to live a full life that's free from the physical, social, emotional and spiritual death that results from addiction."

The Webinar, hosted in conjunction with, will give attendees advice on increasing chances for lifelong recovery.  Many individuals with co-occurring disorders will use their addictions to cope with or medicate their depression, eating disorder, bipolar disorder, or trauma.  If the co-occurring disorders are not identified and treated, the chances of long-term recovery diminishes dramatically.

"The identification and treatment of co-occurring disorders is critical for recovery," adds Dr. Dennis.  "Going to 12-step meetings, getting a sponsor and working the steps are also equally important components to recovery."

Addiction is a progressive, chronic and potentially fatal disease.  Recovery entails coming out of the isolation which characterizes addiction.  Isolation can weaken our spiritual, emotional and social selves.  The Webinar is in line with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's (SAMHSA) message that recovery is possible and tangible steps can be taken to lead a new and abundant life.
