Psychodynamic, client-centered clinicians and trained therapists Holistic approach that truly honors the individual’s mind, body and spirit through yoga, reiki, harp, dream work, shadow work, and unconventional approaches which get to the heart of the pain and suffering of the addictive cycle. Family systems, codependency, trauma and inner child work helps clients detach from shame and identify origins of their low self-esteem or self-worth. Akua is a family that helps model a functional, healthy family to our clients. We choose our staff based on their ability to provide an environment of healing and compassion. We help clients run a healthy AA/12-step program of recovery by not “forcing” the principles on them, but helping them see how lacking the principle of the programs are what keeps them sick. We keep groups very small and process oriented to get to the root of their disease, instead of 20-30 in a group.
