What are the issues you’re facing?

If you are experiencing:

Staff turnover and burnout on your team

Clients leaving against medical advice

Difficulty with client length of stay

Challenges with ins. authorization

Less than desirable treatment outcomes

Conscious Recovery is here to support you with staff trainings, books and workbooks for your clients, and group curriculum.

Most clinicians are trained to focus on symptoms and behaviors, but little attention is given to the power of deeply attuning to their clients. In this sacred space of authentic connection, clinicians can better understand their clients and help them get to the root causes of addiction and mental health concerns, while also addressing the underlying trauma, shame, spiritual disconnection, lack of worthiness, and other factors that underlie maladaptive behaviors. This is not only a more effective approach for clients but is also energizing for clinicians which helps alleviate burnout, overwhelm, and compassion fatigue.

A Testimonial with Discovery Behavioral Health

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Substance Use Division at Discovery Behavioral Health. Conscious Recovery has been successfully integrated into all of the DBH substance use programs nationwide. In this video, Jeremy sits down with Joe Tinervin & Jen Carvalho for a conversation about the advantages Conscious Recovery has provided their treatment programs.

“Woodward has a way of boiling down things down into practical approaches. Honestly, this training is better than what I learned in my graduate program. It’s typical for professional education to be delivered through long winded and nauseated fiddle faddle that clinicians tend to yammer on about – Woodward cuts through all the naval gazing and delivers clear and concise practices and perspectives that should be at the core of any clinicians approach.”

Core Principles

Conscious Recovery is a fresh perspective on addiction. What happens when we view our clients as broken? What does that perspective create in the room? What would it be like if we opened our staff and clients to a completely new way of viewing addiction?

  • Underneath all addictive behavior is an essential self that is whole and perfect

  • The addiction itself has never been the “problem” but was a strategy that has lost its effectiveness

  • Treating addiction must go beyond addressing symptoms and get down to the underlying root causes of destructive behavior

  • The root causes of addictive behavior are unresolved trauma, spiritual disconnection, and toxic shame

  • There is a pathway to permanent freedom through the adoption of spiritual practices and principles
