Cindy Blom, Certified Professional Addiction/Recovery Coach
My family spent 15 years fighting the addiction and mental illness battle with our son. On May 1, 2014, we lost him to an accidental heroin overdose. As a Certified Professional Addiction and Recovery Coach, I work with those who are battling addition, trauma, grief and loss to develop life giving strategies. This can be an extremely isolating journey. We don’t heal overnight. Healing is a process.
Coaching includes helping connect those who struggle with addiction and substance use disorder to medically assisted treatment, trauma and Adverse Childhood Experience therapy, and coaching for cognitive restructuring as well as the support of various recovery communities. This multi-faceted approach to recovery care is becoming widely accepted as a best practices solution as addiction becomes more understood as a multi-faceted disorder.
