Client-Centered Program of Recovery

We Focus Specifically on Solutions for Addiction and Alcoholism

Offering an Effective and Affordable Alternative to Traditional Treatment

for Adult Men and Women

We offer Recovery Coaching, life-changing guidance, and trauma-informed care for our clients based on over 25 years of recovery experience.  Substance Use Disorder is a complex disease, caused by a number of contributing factors. It does not come about solely from drinking too much for too long or taking too many drugs for too long. There are underlying causes which can be pre-existing, and other contributing causes which develop as a result of substance abuse. With Recovery Coaching, abstinence can be achieved and routines can be changed over time with work and commitment. Sessions with a professional coach can help identify patterns, reveal causes and help the individual who has been abusing substances understand the “why” part of their illness from an educated and informed perspective. Most substance abusers are seeking relief from some type of emotional or physical pain. Working with a trained and credentialed professional can help the addict or alcoholic person as wells as their loved-ones, develop coping skills and solutions based upon the issues identified through the coaching relationship. Many people relapse even after inpatient treatment if they, for whatever reason, fail to address the underlying causes of their substance abuse. These causes can be triggered even after a period of abstinence.

We believe in the efficacy of Recovery Coaching. Our former clients lead healthy lives and find joy and purpose in sobriety after completing our program. Our coaching techniques and program of daily accountability can derive amazing results for the "whole person" and those around them.  When combined with abstinence, willingness to change, and support provided by the coach, the program offers a solid platform for long-term recovery.

If you are unsure about commitment to a long-term recovery coaching program, we will be happy to provide an individual evaluation session to determine your unique and personal needs. We will offer a detailed coaching plan based on professional experience to determine an action plan to reach the goal of long-term sobriety. 

Why One-on-One Private Coaching?

We know that each person has fears about their substance use as well as how recovery efforts will impact their individual needs in life. In the early stages of a persons decision to seek recovery there are very often many life situations in partial to many times, total disaray.  Facing the problem of alcoholism and addiction is a frightening and confusing undertaking and many people feel the stigma of shame and embarrassment attached to seeking professional help. Our client sessions provide private and confidential evidence-based solutions through therapeutic coaching interventions. We integrate personal, family, career, school needs and challenges with our goal-based outpatient recovery coaching program and provide solutions that work in the real world.  Our client sessions are scheduled on weekday afternoons, evenings and weekends to meet the needs of real people in their life, work, and school schedules. There is personal and family healing available when consistent, one-on-one therapeutic coaching interventions are formulated and structured for the individual client.


We encourage people to seek help NOW .... before all is lost. If this program is not the right solution for you or your loved one, let us help you find one that is. This program is one solution among many available means of recovery and we can help with referrals, direction and suggestions for healing.  Use the contact us form to reach out today.  


We do not subject our clients to impersonal "group therapy" sessions, which we believe can dilute real and effective progress and can leave a client's specific personal recovery needs un-addressed.  Many  of our previous clients have shared their thoughts about their successes through our program. We've posted several client comments here on the website as encouragement for others to seek help and understand that our recovery coaching program works and is a powerful and personalized alternative to traditional "treatment" or "rehab".  

More on Recovery Coaching >  


Men and women struggling with substance abuse or addiction to alcohol, prescription drugs or "street drugs", very often need help to recover.  When self-attempts have failed or inpatient treatment was inffective or is not a good option, a qualified hands-on recovery coaching professional can be the answer. Our experience spans over 23 years in the field of addiction recovery.  This out-patient coaching program has helped many-many people in their release from addiction and allowed them to re-discover life as it was meant to be.

Our clients are men and women, professionals, stay at home parents, college students, or any adult seeking help to stop the devastation of alcohol and drugs on their lives and the lives of those who love and care for them.

We developed our program based on proven recovery experiences over many years of applying evidence-based addiction recovery theory and client-centered coaching processes.  We provide guidance and support for clients helping them to reach their goals through abstinence-based recovery practices.  We work privately, one-on-one, to coach clients back from the dark places of addiction.  Many good people find themselves vulnerable to the crushing grip of addiction with it's tight hold on thier lives.  Addiction takes people them to the the precipice of personal and family destruction, many times leading to an early and ugly death. 

We help clients find release, relief and renewal.  We begin with an understanding of our client, his or her specific life challenges and family needs, then provide solutions and work face-to-face with them at regularly scheduled sessions to achieve successful results.  Our services are as broad as necessary to reach the clients goals and are always based on experience and clinical wellness precepts. 


Our Clients are sons and daughters, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, both young and old, who are deeply embedded in a vicious cycle of destruction that threatens their very lives. It takes experienced help to free the sufferer from the chains of addiction.  That familiar "numbing of reality" which comes at once from the consumption of various chemical substances must be challenged with a structured plan of relief actions.


We guide our clients through the sometimes very narrow path to achieve abstinence and sobriety.  Each step in the early going is critical to success.  Although recovery comes easier for some than others, it is always a process that requires a one-on-one plan designed and formulated especially for each individual’s circumstances.



“As I take time and think back about these months that have passed, I really feel so grateful to you. I am not just saying this to say it, I really mean it. I don’t know that Mark and I would have made it through if it weren’t for you. You have such a gentle and understanding way about you and any time I was on the ledge you always made me feel better and hopeful. I appreciate your honesty, your demeanor, and your experience. I am just so grateful that you worked with my family to bring all the recovery work together to reunite us. You are fantastic at what you do, so thank you.”
