Heart t’ Heart
Heart t’ Heart is an LDS recovery website maintained by Phil and Colleen Harrison. They are recovery pioneers and have had tremendous impact on the recovery movement within the LDS culture. I have a great personal gratitude for their programs. From their website:
In Heart t’ Heart, we try to bring problems together with their solution.
Do you (or a loved one) have a problem? A problem of any nature? Is there some aspect of your life in which you are out of control, unable to “govern” yourself, where you cannot see a solution? Is it your weight? A relationship with another person–a parent, spouse or child? Are you unable to handle your money or live on a budget? Do you clean and control your environment too much–trying desperately to make things or people’s lives perfect? Doing so all in the name of what is right, of serving others?
You promise you’ll never do it again! You promise you’ll never overeat again, never throw up again, never write bad checks again, never yell at the kids for no reason again, never look at pornography again, never take another pill again, never make another wager, never, never, never! You promise God, yourself and anyone who will listen that you’ll never repeat your destructive behavior. And you are sincere — heartbreakingly sincere. But repeat them you do. And you do. And you do. Day after endless day, your life repeats itself. You are caught in a cycle of repentance and relapse. You are in bondage.
You may have a compulsion or an addiction, and you may need the help that Heart t’ Heart can provide.
Writing has long been known to be a wonderful clinical tool for healing, this site provides a terrific format for those seeking addiction recovery. From their website:

Writing is very important for addicts and their loved ones, as it can assist us in sorting through our feelings and healing emotionally. LDS Addiction Recovery seeks to provide a safe environment for addicts and loved ones to be able to share and, through sharing, assist others as well.
