"I believe in a holistic approach, which includes the mind, body, and spirit.  The whole person needs to heal for success.  And I do believe everyone can heal."  Many see drugs/alcohol as the problem.  I see drugs and alcohol as the solution we found for problems we don't know how to resolve.  Substances have become our coping skills.  The underlying problems must be addressed for healing to take place and to achieve permanent sobriety.
