    Too often in therapy, change is defeated by our traditional reliance on IQ. Typically, we emphasize passive IQ knowledge over the more active EQ, or emotional quotient. EQ is the essential factor needed to apply knowledge to change unhealthy reactive patterns. After all, feelings are what drives thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. Clients often know what to do, but they just don’t follow through, which is where Elite Motivation comes into play. Elite Motivation is EQ-in-motion, increasing a client’s drive, emotional resilience and choice.

  • Treatment Essential: Exercise is a Friend of Bill W.

    When individuals present for treatment they may have a preconceived idea of what components will be addressed in treatment. Quality care encompasses a holistic approach to the entire person – mental, physical, spiritual and emotional.
    Some treatment centers offer very basic fitness regimes or just open access to workout equipment or a basketball court.  If Bill W. only knew how far we’ve come, he’d put on his heart rate monitor and hit the treadmill for a Zone 2 workout!
