Over 25 years of working with men and women suffering from addiction, I have developed a one-on-one Recovery Coaching program that works.
Addictions Counselor in Brentwood, TN
What is the goal of a good coach? Educate the team. Determine the strengths. Reveal the weaknesses. Create a plan of action. Encourage the team. Explain and train. Create accountability. Measure and track improvement. Discuss obstacles and intervene with solutions. Talk it out and walk it out-shoulder to shoulder. Check-in and check-on. Explore the unknown strengths. Apply experienced wisdom. Share the magic. Instill the desire to win. Unify the team. Apply the pep-share in the victory.
In many addiction cases, family and friends of the suffering addict find themselves helpless and at a loss when faced with the terrible dilemma that is destroying lives. One service I offer is a single session evaluation designed to help the ill person recognize that he or she has choices and that real and effective assistance with one-on-one private sessions are available. My work is to offer hope, help create courage, and instill the lost faith that life can change!
Mindfulness is about living in the here and now and setting goals that can be attained by working on today’s intentions to move closer to them.
Alcohol is the oldest addictive substance known to man and is by far the most widely abused one. Many of my coaching program clients came to me following DUI charges, failed treatments, split families, job losses and serious acute physiological medical diagnoses. Detoxification by medical professionals may be required prior to beginning the program. Alcohol is everywhere we turn, yet clients completing the program tell me, and even write online reviews, about their success staying sober!
Whether you are a husband, wife, father, mother, son, daughter, brother, or sister, addiction to mood-altering substances and all it’s ugly baggage is destroying the interdependent relationships of the family unit. Recovery Coaching addresses relationship issues and calls for healing goals and action plans to effect change.
Whether the issue is prescription drugs like opiate pain pills or sedatives like benzodiazepines, there is hope and healing with a well-orchestrated coaching program. The program works for meth addicts, cannabis addiction, amphetamine or barbiturate addictions. Addiction is simply the continued effort to synthetically alter internal feelings in the reward center of the brain.
