We all start out with the dream of a beautiful marriage and family. Having that beautiful home on the water or in the mountains, with the kids running around in the backyard while you’re finishing up the night’s dinner on the grill. But a lot of us forget that marriage and family take work and it’s a full-time job in itself self and it’s not always going to be easy. It takes trust and honesty and an open relationship for things to work. currently, the American association for marriage says the divorce rate is around 70% and growing and this is a direct result of people’s lack of commitment to each other. Marriage is not a one-way street, it takes determination and commitment for them to work but sometimes the stress family or marriage can throw at you, can be too much to bear or make you feel smothered. When individuals, couples, and families experience stress or difficulty in dealing with family member’s situations or behavioral problems, this is where 1 on 1 marriage and family counseling therapy sessions can make a huge difference in your happiness in day to day life with your loved ones.

Recovery starts with the first step

At perspective recovery, our goals are to:


To step away… Step away from people that we typically associate with. Step away from places we frequent. Step away from things we are used to having in our daily lives. In order to refocus your mind, it is vital to remove yourself from day to day normalities in your life.


We are then able to realign our perspective when we learn to accept and take responsibility for the way things have been in our life. No matter the circumstances of your current situation in life, when we take full responsibility for our actions and how we control the direction of our lives, a new World of opportunity opens up to us.


The most crucial part of a perspective change is creating a plan to keep your newfound perspective fresh in your mind and to train yourself always to be open to learning how to grow as an individual. At Perspective Recovery, we help the individual create a clear and attainable list of goals to strive for in every area of your life. We create the road map and give our guests a lifetime GPS subscription to reach these goals.
