In the past ten months, the staff and myself have had the honor of working with this client on levels of personal, psychological, mental and emotional dynamics.  Often times, we’ve experienced the arduous tasks of crisis management, addiction intervention and mental breakdowns with Mr. Anonymous.  In the fields of addiction, psychology and psychiatry, this is referred to as Co-Occurring Disorders.  When an individual is experiencing the burdens of functioning a healthy lifestyle with Co-Occurring Disorders, a system of monitoring by professionals must be set in place until the individual is psychologically stabilized and cognitively functioning in manner that is safe and productive.  Anonymous client’s history of Co-Occurring Disorders is very extensive and according to key members of the client’s family, this is has been challenging since Anonymous client’s childhood.

Even though, the guidelines of Mr.

Client’s trust is designed to transcend funding towards future generations, it is unreasonable to expect Mr. Client to be responsible for offspring, future generations or even to develop a healthy relationship with a woman to bear children.  The main focus with the Client’s family ought to be with the welfare of the client!  I’m sure the Client’s father would have agreed with this advice.  After all, the family’s legacy is directly related to addressing Anonymous Client’s Co-Occurring Disorders.

After reviewing all the reports from the treatment professionals concerning the client, we strongly suggest pursuing an appointed companion that will oversee the client’s day-to-day affairs and responsibilities.  The appointed companion will be responsible for the client’s doctor visits, physical well-being, life skills development, personal finances, social etiquette and career management.

 The sober living staff and management is certainly prepared to addressed the needs for the client under the direction of the family.

Letter from a case manager to a family

Letter to a Case Manager:

Friday dinner with my parents, three brothers, my sister and brother in law and daughter Ashley was an evening I will always cherish.  I do not recall ever being as vulnerable and honest.  It was freeing.  I shared with them my feelings as I never have in my life.  I felt strong.  There is a peace in my soul. My work at Seasons is not a dream.  I did not betray myself with my family. I am authentic.

I am a real person no longer split off from my self.  I am in tune with myself, my family and God.  I am a real person.  I have my Self back with me.  I am a happy man. I am a man.  For the first time in my life ” I Am”.   Tonight at our Shaver cabin I did not rehearse my comments.  I expressed myself in a new and fresh way.  Oh my dear sweet God I am not locked up.  I am not being smothered by inner shame and endless doubt. My heart is full.

I’m alive.  I will sleep soundly tonight. Wow…I have tears of gratitude and faith and no shame. Kevin…..the real Kevin
