About

As a recovering alcoholic and drug addict with 35 years of recovery, I enjoy working with other recovering individuals. I have a wide range of treatment therapy expertise to address co-existing issues that often complicate recovery. My professional experience started in 1988 as a substance abuse counselor intern in residential treatment, with later work in outpatient, hospital, criminal justice and military programs where I eventually became a Clinical Director. While I support 12 step recovery, I also offer alternative approaches that are individualized to more closely align with client desires and motivation.
My current style of therapy is based on Motivational Interviewing where I help facilitate change that the person wants to make. I utilize the latest research based treatment that includes rating scales that keep track of progress and how well I'm doing my job. These tools allow for quick adjustments to help ensure quality care and efficient use of our time.
Having been the beneficiary of various treatment approaches, I know how hard and threatening it is to seek treatment. Research clearly identifies the importance of the therapuetic relationship as the key for positive outcomes. I offer free phone consultations to discuss your interests and to help determine whether or not I may be a good fit for you.

Charles Austin's Groups

A work in progress. Open to co-facilitation

I just semi-retired and started a limited private practice. I am open to joining or co-facilitating existing groups in NM as I have extensive group therapy experience. Starting a group in the future is a goal but need to build a client base first.
