The LoveWithBoundaries Family Addiction Counselling and Therapy Program was developed as a result of Candace Plattor, M.A.'s work as an Addictions Therapist in private practice, where she specializes in working with the family and other loved ones of people who are struggling with addiction. As a former addict with over 33 years clean and sober, Candace learned that overcoming addiction is a family condition: everyone in the family is affected by addiction and everyone needs to heal. For more than three decades, she has been helping both addicts and their loved ones understand their dysfunctional behaviours and make healthier life choices.
The results Candace achieves have been astounding: addicts stop using and families regain their lives from the ravages of addiction. Not only has her success led to a waiting list of clients but she is a sought after leader in the field of addictions. As the developer of the LoveWithBoundaries Family Addiction Counselling and Therapy method, Candace now works with her team of top counsellors, helping families and addicts break the cycle of addiction for good.
As I worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside as an Alcohol and Drug Counsellor (for 16 years), I found there was a tremendous gap in addiction services - there were plenty of services for the addicts and virtually nothing for their families, who were suffering and struggling right along with them. I knew I wanted to fill that gap and provide skilled, effective counselling for families and other loved ones of addicts, who were at their wits’ end not knowing how to handle this horrific situation.
