All Kinds of News for January 10, 2018
Corner Canyon Recovery’s Clinical Director, Cheryl Barton, LCMHC, has worked in the field of Addiction Treatment in Utah since 2009 yet, one might say, she’s prepared for this work her entire life. In her own family, she experienced the devastation of addiction, watching her brother spiral out of control during his teens. She watched as the invisible thread of codependency wove its way throughout her family. When her parents left to serve their church mission, they passed the reigns over to her and her sister and, at that time, Cheryl began to see more clearly the dysfunction that his addiction had left in its wake. She states, “My sweet brother was in his addiction from the age of 14 and died at the age of 39 from this disease”.
Cheryl is passionate about her work with our clients and their families. Her personal experience in her own family and the subsequent therapeutic work she had to do in her own life, as an adult, led her to the field of therapy. In talking about the therapist that helped her see she could contribute to the field of therapy, Cheryl remarks, “Because she told me I could, that gave me the power to see how my influence might effect others for the better. She helped me to identify my strengths and see that every experience I have gives me strength to share with clients and their families”.
Cheryl's mother always said, “Make your mess your message”, and Cheryl’s experience serves as strength and hope for the families at Corner Canyon Recovery. The Family Program offers an initial assessment and family sessions, either by phone or in person, culminating in a Family Healing Program held monthly, where families are invited to come to Corner Canyon Recovery and learn about the neurobiology of addiction, assertive communication skills and reconnecting from a position of recovery. Corner Canyon Recovery's goal is to aid the client and family in creating a blueprint for improved relationships and assistance with recovery for all members.
