Recovery from addiction is not a mystery.
If you are struggling with recovery, have a history of setbacks or are challenged with life while abstinent; my weekly group meetings could save your life. If 12-step programs and traditional treatment are not enough and return to chemical use or other self-defeating behaviors seem like a viable option at times, you are not alone. You need more information.
My groups are a blend of psycho-educational presentations and person centered problem solving.
I will educate you in the practical application of effective techniques to identify and reverse your own relapse process.
Some of the topics covered:
• Relapse Prevention • Integrating 12 Step Programs • Managing Anger • Stress in Recovery • Become Productive • Goal Setting • Restore Self Worth • Healthy Sexuality • Build Positive Life Skills • Other Emerging Addictions in Recovery
