Dr Charles Flores – Breaking the Chains of Addiction: Recovering your Life
Dr. Charles Flores, a true pioneer and trailblazer in the Integral approach to treatment, has facilitated healing and recovery for people with a wide array of addictions, from drug and alcohol abuse, to behavioral and interior neurochemical addictions, including sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet addiction, and workaholism.
But recovery doesn’t end with getting sober. Once the acute withdrawals have subsided, and the honeymoon phase has passed, the root causes of the addiction begin to emerge. Effectively integrating and healing these patterns, tendencies, traumas, beliefs, and more is where the real work of recovery begins.
This deeper level of healing work is where Dr. Flores shines. His unique education and upbringing in the South Bronx, as well as the insights he’s garnered by working with clients of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic classes, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations, have informed and expanded his Integral approach to psychotherapy, where he treats the anxiety, depression, trauma, and other underlying psychological issues that often appear only when the veil drugs and addictive behaviors has lifted.
Using a truly Integral synthesis of psychological, spiritual, and healing modalities, Dr. Flores combines Arnold Lazarus’ multimodal approach, Ken Wilber’s AQAL map, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Buddhist psychology, family systems (genograms and constellations), as well as brainwave entrainment, biofeedback and other technologies.
At the heart of recovery, we find an opportunity to develop a new relationship with spirit. By fostering and encouraging a direct and personal experiential spiritual practice, Dr. Flores helps people learn to turn on the light inside themselves, empowering them to recover and discover their lives.
