Recovery is possible!
I believe that chemical dependency is a treatable disease with treatment and support groups in the community.
I believe every person has the ability to rise above personal challenges with a solid support system and effective coping skills.
It is my philosophy that people should be treated as a whole, and not be seen simply as their addiction.
I believe that each person is an individual, should be treated as such and understand that chemical use is only a portion of the individual.
I concentrate on focusing the client’s treatment using his or her own personal inner wisdom to establish a balance in the client’s psychological, physical, social, and spiritual well-being to promote change.
I believe in meeting the individual where they are at in the process of change.
I believe in helping clients establish a personal foundation of where they are with there addictions.
I believe that every client is unique with their own set of needs, strengths, and goals. I believe in meeting clients where they are at and helping them gain the skills to reach their goals.
I believe that everyone brings something to the table and that helping the client discover their “something” and expand on it, allows the client to maximize their potential.
I believe recovery addresses the needs of the whole person treating mind, body and spirit.
I believe every client deserves the opportunity to define who they want to be, rather than be defined by what they have done.
People deserve the chance to become aware of stumbling blocks in their life, and be given the opportunity to resolve those issues.
Anyone can recover from substance abuse/addiction when given the tools and coping skills to manage life without drugs or alcohol.
Everybody in recovery deserves a chance to create their recovery journey.
I believe treatment for clients must encompass the whole person and their environment.
I help people get over their ambivalence about making changes in their lives.
