I like to take a free spirit approach when I work with active addicts seeking long term recovery. I use all the knowledge I have gained in all aspects of life, to get a better understanding of the individual in front of me. I listen without judgement and use my skilled gained through my training to help implement tools and healthy habits to replace the old bad one’s. I encourage people to write things down so they can determine what triggers certain emotions. This can help an addict track their own progress without feeling pressured to share moments of their life that can cause a negative trigger effect. In due time, down the road of recovery, they will share these moments. In the beginning stages of recovery the addict is very weary of everything that is going on. They feel feelings, they question trust, and look at the damage that has raided their life. I guide them to feel comfortable in their own skin, help them forgive themselves and others who may have hurt them. No pressure here just all love and understanding.
