From Our Archives: In memory of Timothy Scott Cook. Join Monty, Eve and Bruce as they welcome Brent Cook to the show. Brent is a past board member of Take 12 Radio and is a family member of an alcoholic. As we talk about the three types of drinkers found in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, (the moderate drinker, the heavy drinker and the real alcoholic) Brent shares his heart coming from the place of a loving family member of a true alcoholic.
Sadly Tim passed away a few months after the show was broadcast. Tim went home to be with the Lord as a sober man.

Join Monty, Toni and Bruce as they unpack the question, "Should Addicts Go The Jail For Being Addicts?" Does incarceration within the criminal justice system really solve the addiction problem or is there much more to this than jail can even begin to touch? And what about when an addict is released from prison and can't get work and nobody wants him or her around? Recovery Recording Artist, Jeff Bates closes out our show with his song, "One Second Chance".
Though it is true that people who are spiritually healthy, physically fit and mentally aware are not what make up the bulk of many recovery support meetings, one would think that there are some ethics we should follow when attending these meetings. But what about the nasty meetings? The meetings that are host to those who interrupt, criticize, bash and otherwise suck the life out of the fellowship? Join Toni, Bruce and Monty for part two of “Nasty Meetings” (How Bad Behavior Undermines Recovery Support Meetings). Closing song: Two Boats and a Helicopter by Jerry Vandiver.
She doesn't look like a junkie and he looks too young to be an addict, but looks are incredibly deceiving when it comes to drug abuse and addictive illness.

With no apologies and no beating around the bush, Monty, Toni and Bruce share the what, why and who of their God. Jesus Christ is the Lord of Take 12 Recovery Radio and it is by His direction and His power that we broadcast. Find out the reason why these three broadcasters are so bold about their testimony, their recovery and their faith in Christ. If you are not a Christian, that's OK, we get it, but we dare ya to tune in. You may not agree but you can't argue with their personal experience, strength and hope. Closing song, "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" performed by Chris Rice.
This is a three topic show on Using Dreams, Forced Meetings and Coffee.
There is medical science behind using dreams that may actually demonstrate a person’s willingness to be serious about their recovery.
Then, we move over to forced meetings. You know, when a person is court ordered or given an ultimatum by a loved one that they must go to recovery meetings.
There is much controversy around this type of meeting attendance. And what about coffee? Should recovery groups be financially responsible for supplying coffee at the meetings?
Closing the show out with Jeff Bate's song, “He Wasn’t Like Us”.
