Stewart’s Approach to Coaching

Recovery Coaching is a program developed by Stewart W Brebnor based on the tenets of CCAR. It is a program based on the philosophical theory of holism. “The system as a whole determines in an important way how the parts behave.” Successful emotional health cannot be attained and maintained when the individual is treated alone. Instead, Stewart has found a more complex system to be effective. People lead healthier lives when those who love them receive treatment as well. In most cases of addiction, family members and loved ones become co-dependent and enable cycles of addiction. With Stewart’s method the entire support system is worked with and treated.
