Private office-based addictions assessment and treatment. 35 years experience working in and directing treatment programs and in private practice. Author: The New Template for Recovery. Visit chrisportman.net

I am not wedded to any single theory or medical, psychological, or spiritual approach.I view recovery in the broader context of one's life and focus more on the future than on the past.

It has never made any sense that quitting drinking, other drugs or other addictions, should be some sort of dour, gloomy, self-deprecating experience. On the contrary, rather than a sacrifice, overcoming an addiction can be a profoundly fulfilling liberation. A liberation of the person you were meant to be or want to be.
