Loved Ones in Recovery
Loved Ones in Recovery
This group is for those who are involved in a relationship with addicts/alcoholics. Having a relationship with an addict/alcoholic can be frustrating, heart breaking, and debilitating. It can be the most difficult life experience in which love, and despair are experienced simultaneously.
However, when we are so quick to direct blame toward the addict/alcoholic we rarely look at ourselves or how our own behaviors may contribute or be responsible for the disruption that addiction brings to the whole family. This group is for those who are brave eno0ugh to work on themselves and take control of their own lives regardless of the presence of addiction in your life.
Meet Your Counselor
Lori O'Leary, MA, LPC, LCADC, SAC, ACS
After graduating from Rutgers University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Rowan University with a Masters Degree in Psychology, Lori began her career helping patients with Post-Concussion Syndrome. This exposed her to the struggles people face with addictions, and she was fascinated with the underlying root causes of the affliction. In 1990 Lori transitioned her focus to Addictions Counseling.
Over the next decade, her skills brought her to a variety of settings, including hospitals, rehabs, partial programs, and aftercare facilities. She also became a Substance Abuse Counselor for the State of New Jersey, as well as a Therapist for The Cherry Hill Alternative High School.
By 2000, Lori decided to combine her extensive experience with her own unique approach to counseling and opened her own practice with a concentration on addiction, eating disorders, and relationships.
With the help and support of her husband and co-owner Paul, O’Leary Counseling has emerged a successful group counseling center with a full staff of therapists that continues to expand to meet the needs of the community.
Lori is a published writer, and has conducted and lectured on original research throughout the country on personality and addiction.
Lori is also an Approved Clinical Supervisor that currently supervises several clinicians in the process of acquiring their LPCs.
