I'm offering anyone affected by the addictive behavior of someone close to them, 12 years of professional mentoring experience, utilizing evidence-based tools including those influenced by SMART & CRAFT.
I'm offering an end to the fear and confusion about what to do when it comes to supporting your loved one over the long-term, not just while they are in treatment!
As you learn you'll begin to experience a reduction in your own second-hand symptoms such as depression, anxiety, physical problems and then find a greater sense of fulfillment in your own life.
"One member’s addiction often becomes an opportunity for the whole family to heal. Rather than put all the pressure on the person addicted that they have to heal and get better, you emphasize the healing of the whole family.
Recovery always is more effective when the whole family can heal in conjunction with the addicted member of the family. We all have to look at ourselves. We all have to compassionately consider how our family has carried forward suffering for generations." - Gabor Mate
Why does all-in family participation matter?
Addiction treatment is more successful when family gets involved at a professional level combined with peer support.
Engaging in gentle, nonjudgmental support and time-sensitive, evidence based guidance makes sure you get the highest return out of the treatment and recovery process.
I can help you delve under the surface and look at how your assumptions and personal narratives may be working against you.
What do we cover?
Family recovery plans, family discharge plans, emotional regulation, problem solving and adapting to change, developing new communication scripts.
Decide if you're ready to take it to the next level of family addiction recovery.
You cannot solve a tough challenge if you do not go ALL-in with this unique, and less stressful approach.
You cannot expect to be truly successful if you ask your loved one to go all-in but you, yourself are unwilling to make the same effort.
Invest in a process that meets your family's very specific needs over a 6 month period. You make one investment and we are both ALL-IN! You'll get professional recovery inspiration, education and coaching. The fee will include, a personalized recovery strategy, unlimited text chats and emails + however many meetings you need with your mentor.
Book an appointment with your coach. Meet your dedicated mentor in a monthly 1:1 meeting. Your mentor will keep you on track, answer any questions you may have, and support you through your recovery journey.
My position is that family recovery is more than abstinence from drugs and the safer environment this brings. It is abstinence from other unhealthy behaviors, beliefs, emotions, interactions, and styles of communication that comprise an unhealthy family structure. In recovery, the family must allow familiar patterns to collapse. By ending this unhealthy system of interaction the family can then build a new system that promotes growth for each of its members and for the family as a whole. - Timothy Harrington
Chris Lutz, recovering parent To have someone in your corner, both for the recovering addicted person and also the rest of the family is invaluable! Tim Harrington comes to the table with life experience, knowledge, and great communication skills.
He is a great sounding board, a thought provoking resource, a guide and a mentor. He invites us to think some new thoughts and learn some new behaviors. He challenges both our son and our family to create a NEW beginning and allow time to show that it works. It was amazing to have someone who finally understood my feelings of desperation and not knowing what to do next.
Through this journey he encourages, has empathy and yet won’t leave you “stranded”. You feel empowered to be proactive and learn from someone who has already “ been there...done that”.
I appreciate the times he’s spent working with us as a team to rebuild the lost time we’ve had as a family and to see our son flourish and grow. He reminds us of how far we’ve come and the reasons to stay focused.
His resources are great! I know that having Tim as our coach has been pivotal on this journey OUT of addiction and it’s hold on our family. Thanks Tim for your dedication. We appreciate you very much!
