Miami, Florida September 25, 2012
The Addictions Coach announced that they are expanding their services to include not only therapy and mobile drug and alcohol rehabilitation services but also Sober Coaches and Sober Companions. At The Addictions Coach they offer traditional one hour talk therapy sessions, 7 day intensive rehab ‘tune ups’ , where they bring the idea of drug treatment direct to the client at the client’s home or location and most recently they are offering Sober Coaches and Sober Companions to stay with the client 24/7 and assist the client in remaining sober and learning new life skills.

It is a beautiful Spring day in Portland, Oregon. I turn in my chair to look out the big skylight in my office. A stately dark green Maple tree is perfectly framed. Honey bees are busy visiting the small cream-colored flowers. The sky is that color of blue that reminds me of the sea above a shallow coral reef. I check in with my heart. My heart checks in with me. The clear message is that I want to go for a walk. I have a lot of work to do in the office. My heart wins. I put on my coat. I open the door. I start walking.
Though it is still early morning, the sidewalks are quickly filling up with others who are similarly drawn to the cool air...to the lilac bushes...to small butterflies. They are walking.
One of the benefits and accompanying drawbacks of being a therapist, is that I find myself extending my emotional self to people I do not know. Simply put, I want to know how their day is going. I want to know what their stories might be. It is an interesting, genuine, an...
Anger is a normal and healthy emotion when handled appropriately. We all feel anger when we are mistreated or feel we have been "wronged". Its what we do with this anger that is important. When you find that your anger is starting to have negative effects with your day to day life (work, relationships, ability to achieve your goals, etc) then it may be time to seek help. The goal is to learn methods and new ways to control your anger. Many clients in my private practice come to seek me for help in learning how to deal with their anger but most of the time I see that it is fear, resentment, and unmet expectations that are the root causes for their anger. By addressing these issues, the anger soon disapates and the client is able to understand that they do not have to be controlled by their anger and that they are not being the "victim" of others or society but rather they are responsible for their own actions and behaviors.
Many people use anger as a way to keep oth...
Being a teenager in todays society is hard enough with all of the added societal pressure, demands to suceed in school, peer pressure from others, dealing with parents who are divorced, blended families, etc. Often times the pressure becomes so great that our teens fall victim to drug use and what may start out as experimentation quickly turns to abuse, and then full blown addiction. So how does this affect or destroy the family? Most parents are in denial early on in the teens experimental stage and may just think their teen is acting moody or that due to hormones they are disrespectful, avoidant, etc. Most often it starts out with grades dropping, your teen spending less time at home or isolating when he is home, poor communication, lashing out in anger towards others and many other signs. Parents wear blinders and dont want to imagine that their teen could be using drugs so they don't ask the tough questions. Parent then find themselves walking on eggshells because the teen has beco...
KRISS KROSS –CHRIS KELLY DEAD OF OVERDOSE…WHERE WAS HIS RECOVERY COACH?
ATLANTA – Chris Kelly, half of the 1990s kid rap duo Kris Kross who made one of the decade’s most memorable songs with the frenetic “Jump,” has died, and authorities say they are investigating his death as a possible drug overdose.
Investigator Betty Honey of the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office said the 34-year-old Kelly was pronounced dead around 5 p.m. Wednesday at the south campus of the Atlanta Medical Center.
Cpl. Kay Lester of the Fulton County police said “it appears it may have been a possible drug overdose.”
An official cause of death is pending an autopsy.
Kelly, known as “Mac Daddy,” and Chris Smith, known as “Daddy Mac,” were introduced to the music world in 1992 by music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri after he discovered the pair in an Atlanta mall. The duo wore their clothes backwards as a g...

The decision to abandon a life of addiction is the first big step in a long process. You have to learn to transfer your dependency on substances to a dependency on faith, relationships, and your own strength. But this isn’t an easy road to walk and often requires the help of treatment centers and sobriety programs to help you manage the transition. Even though support options vary, all programs work better when the former alcoholic commits to long-term life changes that enhance success. So what does this look like? We asked three experts in addiction counseling to offer their advice:
1. What are the benefits of choosing a treatment center versus other options?
PAUL HOKEMEYER (clinical consultant at Caron Treatment Centers): Treatment centers are for people who have tried the other options and are unable to stay sober. They are also appropriate when a person's drinking or drug use is placing his or her life in danger. Residential programs envelop the person in a safe, contained ...
If so, what does that mean exactly? If not, why not?
A few days ago I came across Chris Hedges’ article in Smithsonian Magazine titled Why Mass Incarceration Defines Us As a Society. We’ve covered the need for prison reform from a variety of angles here at The Good Men Project. We’ve tried to unravel the problems through the lens of society, technology, media, race, gender, science, politics, history and religion. Yet the title of this article stood out to me and, as an American living abroad and viewing his country from the outside, something resonated. Of course, America has been and continues to be defined in myriad ways. For some we are the world’s economic powerhouse despite our debts. For others we remain the pinnacle of freedom. The melting pot. Tech innovators. Fashion and art pioneers. Science gurus. But what of the absurdities within our criminal justice system? Has the system’s ugliness been left alone to grow for so long that it can be added t...
"I just don't understand what she wants!" is a commonly repeated phrase amongst frustrated men endeavouring to please the woman of their dream. Yet this complaint is reduced to insignificance compared to the amount of times I hear women comment: "How could he be so selfish? Doesn't he have any idea how that makes me feel? Doesn't he care?"
Solving relationship conflict here becomes more challenging when we understand that these common complaints are not exclusive to 'highly disfunctional couples'. They are not typical only of couples where a man may genuinely be evaluated to be indifferent (thus justifying her complaint) nor of couples where the woman may have more unresolved inner conflicts than the Gulf war. Time and time again I hear these words from people who have done some basic self-development, who are genuinely in love with their partner and who actually care about pleasing the other party. So what can help couples in the process of solving relationship conflict once and...
Looking back over the years, it’s hard for me choose any one practice location that was my favorite. I have worked with client populations from about every walk of life I can imagine, and some I couldn’t have imagined before I met with them. And, they have taught me some things that I would never have figured out on my own in a million years. This is one of them:
Trying to avoid or ignore getting angry doesn’t make you any less angry. It does, in fact, sometimes serve to make you angrier.
Oh, how I struggled the first few years of being a therapist. I was working with clients, both male and female who had been adjudicated by the court system for “anger management” and domestic violence therapy sessions. We worked long and hard on the logic of getting so violently angry about what often seemed to me to be the smallest of things. We talked it out, we developed strategies to avoid that level of anger and we processed it some more in group therapy. But, I di...
