Character Colleen D Pattinson is an instructor and psychologist specializing in drug addiction and alcoholism at Division of Alcoholism, Drug Abuse and Risk Management at the University of Florida. She has written many books on subjects such as Alcoholism and Drug Rehabilitation, Marriage and Substance Abuse, and Women in Recovery. In her role as a psychologist, she works with people who have co-occurring disorders, addicts, or those who are suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs.
The reasons for needing Alcoholism and Drug Rehabilitation are many and vary from one person to another. A person may be a bit of an alcoholic or drug addict, while another may have a history of abusive or violent relationships. A woman may find herself struggling with depression, while another may find herself trying to cope with the stressors that accompany a pregnancy.
Character Colleen D Pattinson treats these issues by providing individual and group treatment plans. She offers a non-traditional approach to drug addiction treatment and utilizes a 12-step recovery process called The Florida Process. This 12 step program makes use of traditional therapies and spiritual based healing programs to help people overcome addiction and alcohol dependency. She has been an inspiration for many of her clients and has been named as a top recovery coach in the nation.
