About Charter Recovery
The Myth, The Man, The Legend
Charter Recovery's founder was Steve Charter. He did not know the "how" but knew "what he wanted to do with his time here on earth and who he was." This was evident in all the lives that he touched, guiding those who lost their way, never giving up on people, and always believing the best was yet to come. He invested his time and energy in people.
I lost my father to stage IV lung cancer on February 18, 2018, the most considerable loss of my time. He often stated throughout the years, "I would love for one of my daughters to pick up where I left off," so I decided to carry on with his wishes.
Little did I realize then that the leaves do not fall too far from the tree, and now I have a greater understanding of why he did what he did. It is the most beautiful process of watching individuals realize their potential and accomplish their goals. Sobriety is much easier when we are honest, hold ourselves accountable for our thoughts, feelings, and choices, and forgive and love ourselves and others rather than resort to unhealthy habits to cope with life. The disease of addiction is not curable; however, it is treatable if we are willing to put in the work.
We use evidence-based modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), to assist our clients in living a life of sobriety.
