The approaches we use are all based on one simple concept – we treat you the way we wanted and deserved to be treated when the alcohol abuse problems – personal and family – were our own. No such services existed for us, but you don’t have to muddle through alone.
Why would you use our methods for overcoming alcohol abuse?
You know you don’t want to be forced into a cult, labeled, stigmatized, or reduced into being less than you are. You may have gotten derailed by events, mistakes, or circumstance, but it doesn’t mean you’re powerless or need to keep alcohol as the central focus of your life. When you focus on improving your life, and squeezing alcohol out, you’ll have a better life and the temptation to relapse will evaporate.
Clients report both reduced alcohol problems and improved health and personal relationships.
Can you imagine how good it will feel to erase alcohol’s effects? To regain your health and vitality? To renew your marriage? To have a sex life again? All these things are not only possible, but an alternative to drinking that won’t leave you wanting to return to the bottle for companionship and escape.
How did we become the alcoholism treatment experts?
Picture us twenty years ago, looking for ways out of our own alcohol related problems and having no where to turn but the same failed programs that still exist today. We knew those revolving door programs didn’t suit us or our circumstances.
We’re sure you can appreciate how happy we were, years after working our own way out of alcohol problems, to discover our mutual interests and perspective, combine our differing types of expertise, and, finally, to be able to offer you the variety of custom tailored approaches we never had.
You’ll also like knowing that we haven’t stopped looking for new and better ways to help while we’re also practicing what we preach. While our work absorbs us we haven’t forgotten to balance our lives. Early mornings frequently find Ed at the gym lifting weights and training others. An award winning writer he’s also at work on his first novel. Mary Ellen sails, kayaks, and travels extensively, most recently to Alaska and the Antarctic. Together we’re always looking for new ideas, better methods, and increased opportunities for our clients and ourselves.
All of this means that you can benefit from our life coaching as well as the counseling. You can enjoy the benefits of our experience in developing your own uniquely satisfying life.
