POCCC plans to transform lives in the community by forming a safe secure base and following clients all the way through aftercare.
Priority One Coaching, Counseling, & Consulting (POCCC) was founded by, Everette Coffman M.S. and Thomas Moore M.B.A. POCCC provides the community with a revolutionary concept of putting academic research into practice in the substance abuse and mental health field.
Prior research has shown that mental health issues (including substance abuse) have an overwhelming correlation (80%) with insecure attachments styles. Attachment, or necessity to connect with others, is our basic human instinct. When that is insecure, it has been shown to disturb not only daily function, but lead to substance abuse and other negative mental health issues. Attachment injuries (relational trauma) can be a great predictor of substance abuse users. In new research, it has been shown that people who have learned to reconnect with healthy safe people in their recovery have a greater chance of changing their attachment style to secure, predicting greater length of sobriety, better cognitive functioning, positive interpersonal relationships, and overall healthy mental health functioning.
As an attachment based program, Priority One Coaching, Counseling, & Consulting (POCCC) will strive to help people learn how to connect to safe, healthy, and loving people. With over twenty years combined experience working in the recovery field, we have found that when people learn to connect and differentiate between healthy and unhealthy people, their attachment styles can become more secure. While using POCCC as a positive resource for connecting, we believe our clients will have great impact on their ability to change.
We believe in the research proven by neuroscience and especially the work done by psychologist, Susan Johnson, which says we are hard-wired for connection. So, it is our goal to take out the blocking agents that are preventing that connection from happening. By creating a safe and secure base, our clients will learn to navigate the world with not only a new perspective, but a felt sense of safety and security. This felt-sense of security (secure attachment style) is pliable and will allow our clients to learn to make new safe connections in the world.
