The people who come to us are usually looking for something other than 12-step
recovery. They may be people looking to begin recovery from a substance use disorder, or people who are simply not OK with the quality of their recovery. Maybe they're just looking for something different.
We have a cognitive behavioral approach to treatment & recovery. It relies heavily on the principles of Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART). We do not use labels, e.g. alcoholic or addict. We do not use stigmatizing language.
Lifespan Recovery Management (LRM) begins at our office. We do a thorough assessment to determine an appropriate level of outpatient or residential care. All outpatient alcohol and drug abuse services are provided at our location in West Palm Beach, Florida.
When the need for withdrawal management or residential services is indicated, we refer to select facilities and case manage our patient throughout the process. What makes LRM unique is that an LRM professional will manage your abuse and addiction care and recovery through all levels of care until stable recovery is achieved. Following that, we arrange for semi-annual check-ups to monitor recovery and to periodically recommend selected services.
Our approach makes recovery without stigma or shame a reality.
From a patient & a colleague:
"Words of thanks are immeasurable for the profound influence that you have had on my life… “ ~ Thank you… L R F… Singer Island… FL
“Long-term monitoring and treatment of any chronic illness enhances the likelihood of better outcomes...” ~ Louis E. Baxter, Sr., M.D, Past President: American Society of Addiction Medicine
My primary professional goal is to treat addiction as a chronic disorder without stigma or shame being attached. I've been helping individuals and families manage addiction for 30 years. The professionals who do this work need to take on the responsibility for making stigma go away. I share these thoughts by writing and presenting at professional conferences.
Perhaps I can help you to recover with dignity.

In what ways is LRM different from current practices?
LRM monitors a chronic disorder to provide abuse and addiction care over the course of a lifetime.
People with addiction have periiodic check-ups to assess the quality of their recovery and the risks that can
lead to a recurrence. Recurrences
may be avoided or minimized.
· All of the time spent in recovery is
important. We learn from all of our
· LRM is built on success, not failure.
