NEW YORK, March 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denise McIntee of "Steppin' Out: The 12 Step Meeting On-The-Air' and www.12stepmeeting.comhas over 11 years working with the recovery community. Every week she puts real people on the air as they hold 12-step meetings on topics that range from eating disorders, gambling, drug and alcohol addiction. Denise says that her program also broadcasts "anon-type meetings" which are attended by family and friends of those with addictions and in recovery.

Recent celebrity news events have alarmed Denise, who says, "Actor Charlie Sheen- he's like people we all have encountered: desperate, delusional and in denial.  He says 12 Step Meetings do not work.  His remarks are damaging.  We all know the power of celebrity spokespersons to sell products.  I beg your readers, listeners and viewers to not take Charlie's word about these meetings as the last word. "

"Thousands of listeners tune into "Steppin' Out on the American Armed Forces Radio Network, and over 30 affiliates across the country.  The thousands who download streams of archived audio on our website, www.12stepmeeting.com , know better than Charlie Sheen."

To schedule a time to speak with Denise McIntee you may  contact her directly at Denise McIntee, denise@powerfulradio.com, (845) 359-3299, or go through publicist Rita Rich at info@ritarichmedia.net (301) 404-9609.

While taking psychology courses in grad school and while working as Operations Manager at WABC Talkradio in New York, McIntee attended 12 Step Meetings as part of her course work.   She became fascinated and noted that the meetings were often more compelling, engaging, uplifting and real than many of the stories currently heard on-the-air. Great talkradio is great storytelling, and 12 step meetings have the best storytellers in the world.  That is how the idea for "Steppin' Out: The 12 Step Meeting On-The-Air" concept was born.  The show is in its 11th year of production. You can catch a 12- step meeting online 24/7 at the most unique website online: www.12stepmeeting.com
