Why FULL recovery should ALWAYS be our goal

meet them where they are atYesterday, we shared Bill White’s views on the dangers of under-treating addiction. Today, we have Viktor Frankl on the importance of high expectations and addressing the need for meaning and purpose in the lives of people we’re helping.

If we overestimate man…we promote him to what he really can be. … We have to be idealists…we wind up as realists…

If we take man as he is, we make him worse – but if we take man as he should be, we make him capable of becoming what he can be.

If you don’t recognize a young man’s will to meaning, man’s search for meaning, you make him worse, you make him dull, you make him frustrated…
