    The introduction of the concept of dual diagnosis, the co- occurrence of a substance use disorder and another psychiatric disorder, was revolutionary in the treatment of behavioural health patients. However, as we have developed deeper understanding of attachment, trauma, biology of the brain, family systems and other topics it is clear that to truly understand our patients we must see them through a multidimensional lens of the many experiences that have shaped who they have become and who they wish to be.

    Until recently nutrition and various other lifestyle factors were predominantly in the focus of medical disciplines like cardiology, endocrinology or gastroenterology.

    Many of the wounds people sustain in developmental trauma occur when the right brain is developing, which is tied to the autonomic nervous system and the polyvagal nervous system.

    “Conscious Connected Breathing is like voyaging into the realm of being beyond words. Dancing and flowing with the self, feeling the universe’s heart beating in harmony with the voice of the soul, while listening to spirit’s song.

    Powerful recognition that life itself is a gift of different sounds and rhythms, some of them so simply sweet, though others are more complicated to accept.

    As we keep breathing, thinking and acting in this conscious connected way, we will reach the most precious gift of all, the acceptance of what is”.

    Research in neurobiology has made clear that our emotions are experienced and processed by the body as well as the mind and that healing from the kind of trauma that living with addiction engenders requires a mind/body approach. Psychodrama and sociometry allow the body to participate in the therapeutic milieu.
