New Vail Valley healing and recovery program starts Jan. 17
Let 2011 be your year of change. Local resident Catherine Zeeb has developed a healing and recovery intensive program, which begins this month. Zeeb is a certified addictions psychotherapist, holds a doctorate in metaphysics and is an ordained minister. She has worked in the area of healing and addictions for more than 10 years locally.”Healing & Recovery Intensive Program,” or HRIP, is a mind-body-spirit approach to healing. The program can help anyone willing to discover what causes any/all addictions and spiritual disconnect, how to take better care of their body and mind, and how to (re)connect to their Higher Power. “Addiction is a search for wholeness,” Zeeb said. “Recovery takes commitment and healing is a spiritual journey. HRIP is a non-denominational, integrated recovery/healing program; no one recovery or healing method will be used. Exploration of what works for each individual will be essential to their healing.”HRIP’s program is different from any other “wellness” program in the valley as it is about learning; learning who you are, learning why you do the things you do, learning your truth, learning tools to help you remember your true self, and tools to help you “recognize” to return to “you” in as many moments in a day as possible. These tools help you to recover, heal and remember the “whole” person that you are.HRIP is more than a healing and recovery program. It is a type of intensive school for nine weeks that will provide a safe, non-judgmental environment to grow and help people stop self-destructive behaviors. There will be four or five experts who work in a variety of areas of body, mind and spirit healing, such as hypnotherapy, nutrition and medical conditions related to stress and drug use. They will come in to offer new information for the attendees.”We will work with anyone desiring to change things in their lives – change from emotional states of mind, change from alcohol or drug use or addiction and change from behaviors that no longer serve,” Zeeb said.The nine-week commitment includes a two-hour group session per week and a one-hour private session per week. There will be homework given each week to support continued success in the program.HRIP is not a treatment program but could be used as an after-care (continued support) program for anyone who recently attended a rehab facility. The program is open to anyone looking to rediscover themselves. The first session begins on Jan. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. and ends the week of March 12. This program is the first of its kind in the valley and open to anyone looking to change behaviors that create negative outcomes. The program cost is $1,800. Registration is required.
