A recovery coach plays many roles, from teaching basic life skills such as paying bills, lessening debt to providing counseling. One of Dr. Stanger’s strengths is helping loved ones and their families who are in or considering recovery from addiction to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations—while advancing their recovery from addiction. Her focus is on coaching loved ones to create and sustain great and meaningful lives. Through this process, concierge recovery clients deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance their quality of life.

Dr. Stanger frequently collaborates with other licensed professionals who are working with a loved one and team members in a synergistic fashion. She is often referred challenging families to work with who already have loved ones in treatment to do family work. She works hand in hand with other professionals, physicians, therapists and treatment centers to insure an individual and families success.

It is critical that everyone agrees with the expectations, commitments, timelines, ground rules, goals, and objectives. This requires great clinical skill on Dr. Stanger’s part. Interested persons may have competing wants and needs. Occasionally, team members don’t even like each other. However, they must put aside their own issues and come together seeking the common good and health of their loved one.
