This workshop addresses the primary issues each Type must navigate to move up the Levels of Development to successful sobriety and an addiction-free life. Of great importance, and often not referenced in recovery circles, is the importance of the three instincts and how they affect early, middle and late recovery. This workshop addresses the significance and importance of understanding the Three Instincts as keys to understanding the dynamics of relapse in early, middle and late stage recovery. The Instincts have not been utilized in addiction treatment and are a missing piece that play a pivotal role in opening the doors to deeper and greater transformation on the road of recovery.
