Changes and transitions are multifaceted and occur throughout our lives.  They can be sudden and happen at lightening speed; or, they can occur slowly, allowing for managed outcomes.  But it is well recognized that we are programmed to resist change.change

Changes and transitions also occur within us, both as voluntary and often involuntary mental or emotional responses to life dynamics.  Some circumstances can knock us completely off course.

However, It is equally well recognized that we can change the way we think, feel and respond to our every changing life circumstances.

Whether change is something suddenly thrust upon us or something we intentionally embark upon, successfully managing the dynamics of change and transition in our lives and organizations requires heightened degrees of specific transitional skills and aptitudes.  

I.D.E.A.L. Recovery Coaching helps you find and utilize your innate capacities to manage the changes and transitions unique to your circumstances.   


Transitioning from substance use or dependency and into treatment, or from treatment into a recovery community and lifestyle, presents unique and individualized challenges requiring unique and individually tailored responses.

Recovery transitions are aggravated when issues of professional discipline, job loss, divorce, partnership dissolution, criminal charges or health problems exist and contribute layers of complication to the process.  There is no one-size fits all approach to recovery or recovery coaching.
