Around the country, Jason Coombs enthusiastically offers personal insight and wisdom in bringing together evidence-based approaches into realistic context. He strongly believes that Motivational Interviewing and person-centered skills & techniques only go so far without relatable application to influence an addicted person. Many professionals and family members believe that addiction recovery happens in good facilities, programs or jails. The truth is, people don’t recover in buildings, treatment centers, or prison cells. Addicted people recover in RELATIONSHIPS. So how do you help an addicted person recover? Furthermore, how do you help an addicted person want to change, and then sustain recovery-oriented actions over time? Jason will address these questions and provide simple and actionable suggestions that drive measurable results.
