Getting It Straight

Most people who start an addiction recovery program don’t really understand to what extent their perceptions, values, thinking patterns and emotional coping strategies have been compromised and distorted not only by addiction but also by their upbringing and life experiences. Consequently, their journey back to health and happiness often falls short of full recovery because they don’t understand what they have to work on. Many of them are still stuck in unhealthy patterns of various kids and are often barely hanging on to their sobriety. They may still be clean and sober but are not as happy and functional as they had hoped for and/or still carry unresolved issues and trauma.

Getting It Straight

Most people who start an addiction recovery program don’t really understand to what extent their perceptions, values, thinking patterns and emotional coping strategies have been compromised and distorted by addiction. Consequently, their journey back to health and happiness often fall short of full recovery because they don’t understand just how profoundly they were affected. Many of them are often barely hanging on to their sobriety, have gone back into using or are still clean and sober but are not as happy as they had hoped for and/or still carry unresolved issues and trauma.

This program is designed to take participants beyond mere sobriety and deeper into the dismantling of the psychological structures that have been affected by their addiction. They will learn about the subtle but powerful unconscious beliefs they have been unknowingly carrying that have kept them trapped into still thinking, feeling and behaving like an addict despite being clean and sober. Traditional recovery programs will help people break out of the prison cell they were trapped in and into a better life but what they often don’t realize is that they continue to be controlled these unconscious processes effectively bringing their prison cell with them wherever they go. This program gives you the key to get out of the entire prison complex as opposed to just a single cell.

This program is not for the faint of heart, the unmotivated or the person who will need the safety and constant support of an in-patient treatment program to have any chance of racking up some clean time. It is however a perfect program for anyone who has either been clean and sober for a while, has tried other addiction treatment programs, is experiencing a feeling stagnation or of being stuck in their recovery and/or low-grade but persistent feeling of unhappiness, rigidity or frustration or anger. It is also a program for people who need to overcome the issues that caused them to become addicted in the first place. Whether it be trauma, tragedy, a difficult upbringing or low self-esteem, shame or guilt, this program will help you overcome these issues so that can finally experience the full depth of freedom and happiness that true recovery from addiction can bring.
