Welcome to Episode # 71 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast the show designed to help you quit alcohol and change your life one story at a time.
DeAnna Jordan serves as the clinical director at New Method Wellness where she supervises a team of caring, well-trained clinicians who provide continued support throughout a client’s stay at New Method Wellness.
Jordan has over 20 years of experience working with clients in recovery and is a marriage and family therapist (MFT), specializing in the maintenance of healthy relationships. As a result of her expertise, Jordan has been featured on “Dr. Phil,” “Jane Valdez-Mitchell,” National Geographic’s “Taboo,” and has been published in Elle Magazine as well as The Huffington Post. Currently, Jordan is a contributing author for publications including Renew Everyday and U.S. News and World Report.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree from University of California in Irvine, Jordan did post-graduate work at Centaur University where she graduated in the top of her class with a CAADAC certification in Centaur’s chemical dependency program. Following her time at Centaur, Jordan received her Masters in counseling psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and is a current PsyD candidate, studying depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
As a recovering addict, Jordan brings a breadth of personal recovery experience to her clinical leadership and believes a comfortable, structured and supportive environment is an essential part of maintaining long term sobriety. In addition to her passion for recovery, Jordan is extremely involved in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). As a current Woman of the Year candidate, Jordan is campaigning to raise funds for LLS blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors.
In this episode we talk about her 27-years of recovery condensed into her top five tips; the work of Carl Jung, stress tolerance, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioural therapy, and advice and tips relating to my blog post – 10 Reasons Your Marriage Fails After You Quit Alcohol (http://www.needyhelper.com/10-reasons-your-marriage-fails-after-you-quit-drinking-alcohol/)
