Welcome! Our goal at Recovery & Wellness Professional Services is to help you make an informed choice regarding the best support for you or your loved one. We specialize in adolescent and adult alcohol and substance abuse and dependency and offer comprehensive assessments, interventions, psychotherapy, and referrals to the best treatment centers.
Our passion is assisting the entire family system through the recovery process. We look at recovery from an Integral perspective; seeing it as an amalgam of genetics, epigenetics, family systems, psychodynamic theory, attachment disorders, unresolved trauma/abuse/neglect and pathological cultural norms that are both conscious and unconscious. We are flexible in our approach but we also believe all forms of recovery require the implementation of “Universal Spiritual Principles” such as honesty, open-mindedness, willingness, commitment, and compassion to name a few.
Breaking the Cycle
Substance Use Disorder
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a condition that has affected millions of people worldwide. It has no prejudice or preference as to who it will target. SUD will not discriminate against a person’s race, religious beliefs or sexual identity.
It doesn’t care if you are struggling financially or if you are monetarily secure, the end results are always the same. Together we can teach our youth the dangers of substance use and the long lasting impact it will have on them.
Recovery & Wellness Professional Services has over 30 years of experience helping our youth recognize their inner potential and worth. We teach our clients the skills they need to abstain from future use.
Healing your Family
How you are affected
If you are reading this, you have probably already felt the negative impact within your family dynamics due to substance use and/or dependency of one or more members.
Substance Use Disorder, and the profound effects that it has on everyone directly and indirectly involved, is similar to throwing a rock in a pond. The “ripples” wave out and create a turbulence way beyond the splash. This can be catastrophic on the family unit as a whole.
Here at Recovery & Wellness Professional Services, one of our primary goals is to help our clients begin to understand their worth, to love themselves, and come to terms with the impact their behavior has on those who love them.
