Intensive and Workshops

Shame breeds in secrecy. Shame cannot exist when met with empathy, compassion, and care. Addiction grows in isolation, and connection fuels recovery. It is because of this that we have such a focus on connecting people.


Building a framework of healing requires commitment and community. These workshops are designed to build upon each other as you (and, if appropriate, your significant other) navigate recovery in a safe, supportive group atmosphere. Attendance is highly suggested at all Addiction workshops and/or Partner's workshops. By having a common language and foundational tools, you can end the year strong by participating and celebrating together the individual work you have both achieved.

Current Workshops

Workshops have a topic and meet for a specific number of weeks. Workshops provide an opportunity to be with others with a similar experience. We have experienced significant shifts within people that have attended our workshops.

The Hero’s Journey

A Workshop for Betrayed Partners

I invite you to join me and a small group for a half day devoted to healing for betrayed partners. We will use the structure of the Hero’s Journey as a metaphor for the path you are on to mend from the discovery that your partner violated their vows and your safety and trust. This will be an opportunity to explore your broken places in a safe circle, while sharing your story with others who can witness and hold your pain, as well as reflect your strength and courage.

Group will include experiential activities designed to help you make sense of where you are now on the journey, where you have been, and what may lie ahead. The focus is on you, not your betrayer. Our goal is to deepen your understanding and appreciation for the hard work you’ve done thus far, and to offer hope and encouragement for the rest of the journey. No matter where you are, or how long you’ve been struggling to mend your life, this group will help you identify the gifts in your wounds.

Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

An intensive is an opportunity to receive a significant amount of treatment within a short period of time. We offer individual intensives tailored to meet the person's needs, as well as group intensives programs.

Individual Daily

An Intensive outpatient program can be a good step-down option for a person coming out of inpatient treatment, in which he or she meets one hour a day each day of the week for multiple weeks with our clinicians. This provides a level of support for the person leaving the highly structured environment provided by the inpatient facility, and helps give the person a safe place each day to navigate the challenges of acclimating to home and work life. We have also found daily individual outpatient helpful for the person needing more support however is unable to attend a group IOP for different reasons.

Group Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

A group IOP experience provides the benefit of six months of group therapy over the course of 3-4 days. Individuals who have completed an intensive experience with us report feeling more confident with a foundation for sobriety as well as a useful toolkit to maintain and build a meaningful recovery. The intensive is tailored to the specific needs of those in attendance. Either for those newer to recovery, or those in a longer-term recovery that find him or herself struggling with roadblocks that may be in the way of a deeper and more meaningful recovery. The format is educational, experiential, and process oriented.
