About Nick

Nick Cuneo is the President and Founder of Clean Recovery Centers in Tampa, Florida.

The primary purpose of Clean Recovery Centers is to help those suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism achieve permanent sobriety or, put a different way, to Get, Live and stay Clean.

Charles Robinson

Executive Clinical Director

About Charles

Charles Robinson is the Executive Clinical Director of Clean Recovery Centers in Tampa, Florida. An extremely gifted healer with over 40 years in the mental health field, he was trained classically as well as in Eastern philosophy and techniques. He calls the Clean Recovery Program the culmination of his life’s work.

As architect of Clean’s Three Phase Program, Charles utilizes techniques that are unique and very powerful. Through the Anchors Process, he allows people to identify the anchoring events around their addiction, to understand the core beliefs created around their addiction, and to help them change those beliefs. A strong supporter of Don Miguel Ruiz’s ‘The Four Agreements’, Charles teaches people to be impeccable with their word, to always do their best, and to stop making assumptions and taking things personally.

Through a technique called the Witness State, he allows people to watch themselves as they progress through each stage of their recovery. He is also an expert in meditation and the creator of Kai Chi Do, an aerobic treatment martial arts program similar to Tai Chi but with more movement and fun.
