WriteRECOVERY: Our Stories Can Save Us© has been utilized in Florida Treatment centers since 2012.

Dr. Simpson can offer group or individual sessions tailored to the specific treatment needs of each client. 

About the process:


The WriteRECOVERY: Our Stories Can Save Us© effectively builds groundwork for personal growth by accessing, recognizing and recording our interior dialogue. Participants are taught effective writing tools which often produce an insightful body of work. They may draw from this exploratory body of work then share it with their sponsors, therapists and or spiritual advisers.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.”  -Jim Morrison

For what it’s worth: It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over. -F. Scott Fitzgerald
