Newport Coast, CA – Dr. Bob Weathers is a recovery coach who understands addiction from the inside.
Prior to becoming a recovery coach, Dr. Weathers was a highly regarded professor of psychology. Unfortunately, he would eventually descend into increasing, mid-life addiction to alcohol and other drugs over a period of 15 years, finally losing his academic position.
Upon his recovery, Dr. Weathers wondered if there might be a way he could apply his clinical background in psychology to help others recover from addictions of any kind and at any time of life, young or old.
Today, Dr. Weathers is a recovery coach and addiction educator who works with professionals of all stripes. Many of these clients are successful lawyers, doctors, and business executives: people who no one would never expect to be struggling with addiction.
“For the clients that I work with, their addictive behavior has been going on completely in the shadows. They're ashamed of it, secretive about it, and they don't get help because of that.” says Dr. Weathers. “Shame is public enemy number one in terms of mental health. If a person doesn't conquer shame, they won't make forward progress in their recovery. I work with clients to navigate the shame of their addiction with self-compassion.”
