"I'm a lucky guy because I'm passionate about everything I've decided to do in my life!"
When I was 23, I participated in a Family Intervention, and since then I have discovered that no one is happy alone.
We also need to see happiness in others for our lives to make sense!
After finishing my dream of being a professional athlete, I won a scholarship by A.T.T. (Association of Treatment of Drug Addiction, IPSS).
I went on to study Addiction Counseling (Diploma in Addictions Counseling) in England in 1996 at the institution Action on Addictions
After completing my studies, I worked in several addictions treatment centers:
- Farol II Treatment Center in Portugal.
- Crossroads Treatment Center in Antigua, Caribbean. Founded by Mr. Eric Clapton.
- Outcome Consulting, England.
- Clouds House (in its day center in Bournemouth), as a consultant.
And other centers spread throughout Brazil and South Africa.
After having known and worked in several treatment centers in different countries, I decided to return to Portugal and to establish my residence here again in 2002.
The experience doing Structured Family Interventions and the passion for helping others made this activity to be part of me and my mission in life.
Since 1996 …
- I visited 58 treatment providers around the world.
- I selected the 12 best.
I have developed through the years, partnerships based on sucess outcomes, professionalism, competence, and permanent collaboration.
And today I can confidently recommend which one is best for your specific case.
