Do "Smart" People Heal?

Too many "smart" people in our world are heading for certain destruction. Even death. Why? A lot of them choose to escape their reality through a facade of "okayness." They hide. Hitting bottom ("unmasking") is absolutely necessary for genuine recovery. Without it, the "smart" person is simply kidding himself or herself and relapse is inevitable. Only when you hit bottom - to the end of your self - can life truly begin. What is it going to be? Losing all things in your life? Tragedy? Intervention? Why not make a healing decision?  No matter how deeply stuck or wounded, you can make a turnaround ... for you and for those who care about you.
