As the creator of Alchemist Recovery, I’ve been helping people who struggle with addiction for more than two decades.
To break the addictive cycle and create lasting change, Alchemist Recovery moves from 3 Principles:
1. Addiction affects every aspect of a person: mental, spiritual, emotional and physical
Addiction changes the way a person thinks, believes, feels and acts. Effective treatment must address all of these aspects. This is an individualized process that honors a person’s belief system and unique situation. Meeting you where you are, we explore, explain and treat every aspect of you and your addiction.

2. Addiction is a Cycle
Addiction is a vicious cycle that feeds off of itself. It becomes cemented into place by creating consequences that reinforce the origins of the problem. Understanding how all parts of the cycle are related and inter-dependent allows us to see and treat the entire pattern, rather than isolated parts. This is critical for real, lasting recovery.

3. Addiction affects and is intertwined with every relationship in a person’s life
When a person struggles with addiction, their relationships with others fit into the larger cycle. Relationship dynamics—the dance of how you exchange emotion and energy with those closest to you—reflect and depend on every other aspect of the addiction. This can be a difficult reality to face, because the very relationships someone depends on may also be perpetuating the problem. Addressing these dynamics is another crucial part of real, lasting recovery.
