Naltrexone would prevent them from developing the alternative mood alteration of reaching out to help someone else anonymously within the Twelve Step Fellowships. It is this alternative mood-altering process of working the Twelve Step programme that is ultimately the source of daily remission from any form of addictive behaviour.

The neurotransmission disease persists but it receives daily appropriate treatment that is life enhancing. As a result of working the Twelve Step programme, sufferers from neurotransmission disease are able to enjoy the full range of colour in their emotional lives.
