    International Master Addictions Coach and Nationally Certified Life Coach, Tricia Parido, Announces an Innovative and Unique Program to Combat “Chronic Relapse” for the Drug and Alcohol Treatment and Substance Abuse Rehab Client Seeking an Effective Aftercare Plan

    Tricia Parido, Owner/Director of Turning Leaves Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching, a nationally certified coaching practice recently announced they are now offering a program to address the issue of “chronic relapse” and the need to “repeat addiction treatment”. The six-month (and up) service called Tune Up Your Recovery; Relapse Prevention that incorporates their Building Milestones curriculum offers a ray of hope for the person that desires to achieve long-term sobriety.
    Parido said, “We have all heard the example of the 20, 30, or even 40-something year-old who seemingly can do well during the initial 30 – 90 day treatment program and often for 3, 6, or 9 months after treatment, living with or being dependent on mom and dad, before facing another bought of substance abuse and their next admittance to yet another treatment facility.”  
    “We call this functioning institutionalization, and it is a very common condition experienced by the people we see that have lived in a more affluent upbringing.” 
    So, what causes this? Is it the “disease”? Is it a lack of will? Were they just “spoiled”? Do they lack direction? Or is it a direct cause of a mental health issue like bipolar disorder?
    "The fact is most often post-acute withdrawal is the culprit along with a culmination of the examples mentioned, and many other variables that present in life," Parido explained. A unique factor Parido sees most often is that although the afflicted desires to be successful, they lack an ability to sit in and move through the uncomfortable. When distress and disappointments common in life happen, they are ill-equipped to motivate through them leaving them hostage to the many years of conditioned behaviors of self-medicating. 
    This “chronic relapsing” generates the functional institutionalization where the individual continues to rotate from a treatment program to being supported by a family member or loved one, and back to treatment. The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIH) about relapse and treatment effectiveness states “Treatment of chronic diseases involves changing deeply imbedded behaviors. Lapses back to drug use indicate that treatment needs to be reinstated or adjusted, or that alternate treatment is needed.”
    NIH further reports that “no single treatment is right for everyone, and treatment providers must choose an optimal treatment plan in consultation with the individual patient and should consider the patient’s unique history and circumstance.”
    The number of adults who are lacking appropriate impulse controls and engaging in a multitude of addictive behaviors is alarming. In fact, research shows that in 2017, 8.5 million American adults suffered from both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorders, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). The survey also shows that almost 74% of adults suffering from a substance use disorder in 2017 struggled with an alcohol use disorder.
    “My coaching as a psychological practice is effectively helping those struggling with chronic relapse and is helping the addiction population figure out why they do what they do and how to fix it,” explained Parido. “Through my private and unique skill-building practice that is tailored to fit all of our client’s specific needs, we are helping so many people discover how to shift their lives by engaging with them in their lives.”
    Turning Leaves, Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching’s “Tune-Up Your Recovery, Relapse Prevention” service was described by Parido as a program that addresses the frequent needs that arise when a person in recovery becomes complacent with the routine that brought them any amount of success and more importantly, it walks them through places of vulnerability such as increased stress and traumatic events.
    “What I’ve discovered after six years as a professional in this industry and decades of general experience is that people simply run into periods that create the need to re-engage with professionals that can help them reinforce the desire to stay on track, develop new life skills when the needs arise, and continue to grow as an independent, highly functioning person” explains Parido.
    She continued, “We are on a mission to generate long-term success, to support life-long manageable and maintainable lifestyle shifts, and we are doing this one person at a time through a personalized and integrative process that has produced tremendous results for those we have helped.”
    As Owner/Director of Turning Leaves Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching, a nationally certified coaching practice, Parido has devoted years assuring that those whom she serves become motivated and empowered to understand and respect their addictions, reconnect with a life they can love, gain a renewed sense of self and develop personal control.
    Parido and Turning Leaves, Recovery, Life, and Wellness Coaching offer a wide range of advanced life coaching programs that address a multitude of addictive behaviors, family recovery coaching needs, professional intervention services, and case management systems.
