I'm an ex-opiate abuser that got clean and dedicated my life to helping others recover from addiction. After I quit opiates, I went on to become a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor at an Opiate Treatment Program (OTP).
I left that profession to start my own business, Opiate Addiction Support, so I could reach more people using the internet and continue to develop my skills in the helping profession. I have since become a Certified Strategic Intervention Coach, and I've also created my own coaching method, called "4-Pillars Recovery Coaching."
As soon as you register for Intro To Opioid Dependence, you gain immediate, lifetime access to the Lessons and Activities. I really mean it when I say the first step to overcoming opiate addicton is to have an honest and detailed picture of what you're up against. Once you take this first step, you will gain momentum, and then it will be easier to start the process of planning your opiate detox.
Program overview, how to navigate the course, and my story of addiction and recovery.
This lesson dives into current opioid addiction statistics, explains why opioid abuse has become a worldwide epidemic, covers how opioids work in the body, and explains how people become addicted to opioids and why they are so hard to quit.
