MOVE BEYOND ADDICTION

thumbnail_j+cW7aoGRfG%pC3ZpmNH+g_thumb_cfd.jpg

In life, we feel that we lose track of how to live, especially if we are addicts. I define addiction, as Tommy Rosen explains in his book Recovery 2.0, as the The Big Six - Drugs, Alcohol, Food, People, Money, Technology, and The Four Aggravations - Negative Thinking, Self-Doubt, Procrastination, Resentment.

Addiction can be a painful, challenging time in a person’s life. It was for me traveling to the hospital overdosing in the back of the ambulance, I uttered the words “I do not know how to live”, to something that I could not see, taste or feel. I know what is possible with dedication and commitment. I have moved beyond addiction and have upgraded my life.

Let me help you move past your addiction story and upgrade your life with daily practices, meditation, yoga, and a pathway to a healthier relationship with food. We will discover your personal mission and be of service to others.

Recovery Coaching is for people recovering from all manifestations of addiction

If there’s anything I believe about addiction, it’s that “the issues are in the tissues.” In other words, as Dr. Gabor Mate says, I believe addiction is a response to trauma. As I see it, addiction is a solution. The problem is that it’s an ineffective solution.

Although there are many definitions for “addict,” mine is someone who feels things so deeply that he or she will do anything possible to change a feeling - even if changing that feeling could mean death. I’m not even sure that addicts feel things more intensely than other people; it’s just that we prioritize those feelings so much. We love dopamine and feel entitled to it. If we don’t get it, we can often overanalyze, spending way too much time trying to figure out what’s wrong when nothing actually is.

Addicts lose track of how to live, and those of us treating addicts often forget the importance of attending to the basics that then become the scaffolding for a rich and flourishing recovery. What drew me into the field of addiction treatment was watching extraordinary people regain a thriving existence.

Recovery Coaching is for people recovering from all manifestations of addiction, from behavioral addictions to substance abuse – creating a safe place where trauma can be released.
