Larry King Now

“We spoke about addiction, mainly alcoholism, and the need for more and better options for addicts and their families. Even though Miss Baxter is a strong proponent of 12 Step and I am all about The Sinclair Method; we all agreed that we can a) work together and b) every addict is different and therefore needs personalized treatment. My years on TSM have been extraordinary and I have met some amazing people, not only did this treatment save my life, it defined my life. I am now 100% committed to saving lives through education and direct help, I council people and provide support, I guide them and I befriend them. I have never felt more excited about getting up in the morning than I do at this stage in my life, helping people has been the most gratifying thing I have and ever will do. In each addict I see the me I used to be and my singular joy and wish is to lessen that person’s pain and to help them not lose the time I lost searching for an answer to my addiction. Making the documentary One Little Pill is the next step in saving lives and providing options and I hope you join me in the fight.  http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/one-little-pill/x/5251511.”
