Check out Entrepreneurs in Recovery® Workshops:
Entrepeneurs in Recovery® Workshops are designed bring out the best in individuals, groups, communities, workplaces, organizations, addiction treatment centers and structured sober living homes. Our method helps people become an entrepreneur of their own life and recovery. The Five Workshops are offered live in person and online.
During my group workshops, we identify times when individuals or communities are at their best or most resilient, uncover life-giving strengths and values, and imagine an even greater future through generative questions and guided visualization that focuses on a deep sense of meaning and purpose.
At Entrepreneurs in Recovery®, we use a simple but powerful approach known as the XCHANGE method to lead individuals, groups, communities, and systems. I'm an XCHANGE Certified Practitioner and Master Faculty member on a mission to transform the way we deliver education, resources, and tools for people with addiction.
The five workshops deepen participants sense of individual and shared purpose, teach life-long coping skills, resilience, self-care routines, self-empowerment, positive story sharing, action planning and goal setting, mindfulness, and social connection.
Building Resilience in Recovery Workshop
We study moments of resilience and tap into the individual and collective strengths of the group. Next, the group creates an empowering sentence of resilience which is turned into a personal resilience affirmation. This is followed by an action plan that embodies resilience for success in life and recovery.

Self-Care in Recovery Workshop
We study moments of health and wellness followed by self-care actions and goals relating to the mind, body, and spirit. Next, we divide into groups to ideate an ideal self-care routine for recovery. This activity is followed by each participant creating their own daily self-care routine.
"I absolutely am grateful. Had you done this two months ago in my active addiction, I would never have experienced what I did today sober. It gave me hope, value and more gratitude."
"I like the communication with each other and the music. Getting to learn about others made time go fast and I love interactive groups. Thank you!"
"It's encouraging and hopeful looking back to a point in our lives that was good. Helps to realize some of the positive qualities we have that we might have forgotten through our use. Helps to build goals to create the future we want."
"Shows the commonality between different people to show us that we all want very similar futures. Goals are great and possible to accomplish."
