Families coping with Addiction
The Higher Ground approach to addiction focuses on a family-based and life coaching approach. A huge gap in addiction services is the lack of therapeutic services to family members of a person with addiction. In addition, many individuals coming out of treatment also find themselves with almost little or no support. The lack of family understanding and healthy support combined with lack of other support after treatment completion are two of the biggest predictors of addiction relapse. The Higher Ground Approach works with families to create healthy boundaries and communication. The approach also focuses on helping individuals coming out of treatment with addiction support to maintain sobriety and healthy personal growth strategies.

Reflecting Forth Program
Higher Ground Consulting and Krave Branding have teamed up to create a new program called Reflecting Forth. Reflecting Forth is a unique
business concept designed to help individuals with aspects of stress and grief following the loss of a loved one. Many decisions have to be made after the death of a loved one. Individuals tend to feel overwhelmed with stress and emotions over their loss, and yet they have to make multiple decisions about how to celebrate the life of the person they have lost. Part of the Reflecting Forth concept is to work with the bereaved to design customized materials for the funeral service that accentuates the essence of the honored person’s life.
The Reflecting Forth concept also focuses on helping individuals address their grief and coping ability with the loss they have experienced. Grieving is a natural and difficult process to navigate, and many people try to avoid this important process. That is where Grief Coaching can help with the difficult period following the passing of a family member or friend.
