Here to Help and Learn

Recommended Posts

Hello All. I am new to the forum. I thought I would quickly introduce myself.

I live in Utah County and work with addicts. I had a friend who mentioned they see people with addiction related issues frequently on the forum and that I may be able to occasionally help. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist but mostly work with addicts. I do a lot of work with Porn addicts and have seen the hope that recovery can bring to individuals and families. I see perscription med addiction really growing.

Addiction does not discriminate. I know great people who have fallen into addiction and no one would even guess it. There is hope through learning skills and the atonement. I have personally witnessed dozens of individuals find sobriety.

Let me know if I can help answer any questions :)

Loudmouth...I love it! It is interesting how one of the first questions I always get asked is what addiction(s)/poison, if any, I am recovering from.

I don't think any human being exists where all their life learning is all academic. All of our lives are shaped from experience. I am a huge believer of redemption, change, and forgiveness. I am not a huge fan in dwelling on the past...however, there are situations where individuals need to face the past, accept it for what it is, and move on in a positive direction.

Much of my learning has been through watching and helping others...but of course I have worked to overcome my own weakness in life. For some it is substance, others emotion like anger, hate, or envy. Others is is self-image or depression. Others, it is pornography or sexual issues. Many have scarred childhoods and relationship issues. The list can go on and on.
