Philip’s recovery began over 20 years ago on his 35th birthday. That day marked the last mind altering substance he put into his body and began the gradual healing process that he maintains to this day. Finding on his journey that he also was a codependent and an enabler, he faced those issues as well. Using individual and group counseling, AA, NA, CODA, Al-Anon, ACA, GA, and becoming a student in The Course in Miracles, he has been able to grow, nurture, and maintain a healthy way of being.
