Many addicts manage to function everyday without others knowing about it. But how do they do it? Today, we continue our series on addiction with a look at functioning addicts.

NPR's Tony Cox talks with Ed Storti, a certified alcohol and drug counselor and intervention specialist.

He's the author of several books, including Heart to Heart and Addiction Recovery Tools.
