He saw an opportunity in the treatment industry to help more people – and Clean Recovery Centers was born. “It’s a natural extension of what I have been doing for the last 18 years in recovery,” he explained.” It’s an opportunity to help an ever-growing number of people.”

Executive Clinical Director
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.
