Hello, I'm Kaylee. I'm a recovering addict myself. I understand if you're hesistant to talk to us on here. It can be challenging to confide in someone; still, sometimes the anonymity makes it easier, right?

I deal best with drug abuse. I use Buddhist philosephy in talking through the issues, as well as basic CBT techniques and in the end I guide everyone who is ready for sobriety - or who has had a lapse- into creating a safety plan for their network if they do not have one. I have firsthand witnessed the power of this tool on adolscents adults alike and I firmly believe in it. You do not have to be ready to recover, just willing.

I deal with mild to moderate substance abuse disorders. I'm afraid I'm not trained for severe cases. 

I will not take any topics that have a sexual nature to them.
