Colleen Kachmann doesn't identify as "sober," and was able to reintroduce alcohol (after 3 years of abstinence) without issue.
Colleen is the host of the Recover with Colleen podcast, a recovery-certified Master Coach and author of the book Life Off the Label: A Handbook for Creating Your Own Brand of Health and Happiness. She holds a master of science in recovery coaching, a BS in education, and a women's functional and integrative medicine professional certificate.
Like most high-functioning perfectionist drinkers, Colleen's goal was to get better at drinking. But after a full year of sobriety, she still felt perpetually hungover. Everything changed when she dove into the research that taught her how to get better at thinking.
Colleen developed the Accelerated Recovery Process© using evidence-based strategies in neurophysiology and positive psychology that have been scientifically proven to help people change. She has helped hundreds of clients bypass the stigma and shame that accompanies substance use disorders and learn how to trust themselves again--with or without a drink in their hand.
