A Good With Me Recovery provides a simple, practical, step-by-step framework for understanding a new approach to addiction recovery. It provides counseling and addiction professionals with a revolutionary approach to show clients how to change the way they think about themselves from negative to positive, how to let go of the ideas they were taught by our other-dependent society about who they should be, what they should be, what they should achieve, and what they should have so they can experience freedom from the crippling effects of addiction. Counseling professionals will learn to teach clients how to stop depending upon someone or something outside of themselves to make them feel good and how to achieve real happiness that lasts because it comes from the inside out instead of from the outside in.

About the author: Patricia Noll an acclaimed self-esteem and addiction expert, the founder of Good With Me and Focus One, an Outpatient Substance Abuse Program licensed by the state of Florida in 1989, is the author of this course.  She is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Addictions Professional, Acupuncture Physician, and Author of the book, GOOD WITH ME: A Simple Approach to Real Happiness from the Inside Out.  Her Addiction Treatment Manual has received endorsements from Deepak Chopra, Jacquelyn Small, Dr. Larry Dossey, and Jack Kornfield. Good With Me is the result of her own life of alcohol use and her quest for information that would allow her to feel good without alcohol. She applied what she learned first to herself and then to her clients during her 30+ years of helping troubled individuals from all walks of life.  Her discovery of Other-Dependent Esteem, which she found to be the root of all addictions, has led to a revolutionary approach to addiction treatment. “I have become an expert at showing people how to make the shift from being other-dependent for their happiness to becoming self-dependent to experience real happiness from the inside out. I am absolutely convinced that the time has never been more right for each of us to learn how to experience real happiness from the inside out by becoming a Good With Me person.” ---Patricia Noll

“Being Good With Me is a big deal!” Mayor Rick Kriseman proclaimed September 21st of each year as Good With Me Day in the city of St. Petersburg, FL to ensure a healthier community in the future.

Course Description: A Good With Me Recovery introduces revolutionary and effective concepts to treat addiction: The Two Esteems (Other-Dependent and Self-Dependent), The Four Attachments, the role of thinking in addiction, and more.  The model identifies the difference between Other-Dependent Esteem and Self-Dependent Esteem. It focuses on retraining the brain, the dynamic relationship between thinking, addiction, and recovery, the role of self-dependent esteem versus the role of other-dependent esteem, The Four Attachments, and how each influence real happiness.

This course illustrates that what we have been taught to believe is self-esteem is other-dependent esteem which is the root of not feeling good about ourselves and addiction. It demonstrates that while professionals thought they were teaching self-esteem they were teaching other-dependent esteem.  This course shows the professional how to teach clients to stop faking that they’re okay, how to avoid feeling worried and stressed-out, & how to transcend addiction to feel good for real.  Good With Me provides the know-how to help clients change the way they think about themselves. It clears the way to like who they are right now, to recognize their worth and value, how to own real self-dependent esteem, and experience real happiness to become a Good With Me person. This means they get to live a life that is free of the need for someone or something outside of themselves to make them feel good or at least a little bit better --- all because they like who they are and are happy…FOR REAL.
