Camille embraces the journey of recovery as a way of life. The construct of the 12 Steps is the foundation she offers in assisting each individual in accessing their innate value; ability; and identity. Learning to connect the head, to the heart, to the soul is a theme Camille relies on to support each individual’s experience in achieving a; ” To thine own self be true” lifestyle. Each intervention and group is designed to assist the “Aha” moment that reunites a member with clarity of self. Camille believes in, ” keeping it real, in order to heal” and is committed to contributing to The Phoenix Difference. Camille embodies enthusiasm, hope, compassion and an integral belief that every individual afflicted with a substance use disorder does not have to continue in the torment of this disease, instead they may receive a safe way to connect to life, love and laughter.
