Just an Excellent Psychologist and Therapist. Rick's specialty is everything to do with substance problems, addictions or figuring out how to live with/ work with/ help someone who has one of these terrible problems. Just "leaving things alone" is a total b.s. approach and just leaves the suffering (of everyone involved) and all the emotional heartbreak of trying to deal with an addict. Care for another serving of hurt next week too, anybody? Oh, me too!! (LOL?) If drugs honestly had the important place that many of us give them and if they honestly helped us the way we defend they do (BTW, that's your addiction speaking up right now buddy, telling you what I am writing magically "doesn't apply" to you, so get a grip)...if drugs were so inherently normal or good for us then dogs, cats, and birds would also get messed up several times a week and we'd see them growl and snap at and manipulate their family members too. My dog gets a healthy good mood when we go to the park and meet other dogs (and he hasn't told me once that I "suck" if I won't front him some cash or score him a prescription of Oxycontin). Get a grip on yourself and call Rick Barth. He's relaxed. You can't let him down if you try. He's not a "feel bad about yourself" motivator (since that works for about a month before you slip--am I right?). Rick goes for humane and long term benefit. He'll be calm and extremely supportive with you, just like he always is whenever I see him in person, or we talk by phone.
