“I’m very grateful for the wounds that I have acquired in my life. And I see now how those wounds were openings to something greater.” ~Gregory Koufacos
The patriarchy, amiright?! They’re an easy (and rightfully) targeted group. However, there’s an entire generation growing up under the influence of our current system. What are we – therapists and society in general – doing to help them heal from the twin scourges of addiction and toxic masculinity?
Gregory Koufacos MA, LCADC, NCRC, founder and CEO of Velocity Mentoring, is the bright light in the dark tunnel, not at the end of it. He and Sarah discuss his work with emerging men and bond over what addiction therapy practitioners can do to better support this community.
So where do we begin? What can we do to advance the healing? Glad you asked!
Primal Method, Greg’s soon-to-be-published book, addresses those very same questions. “A big part of the process is teaching men that we cannot take what we want, right?” It’s common-sense messaging that’s rarely reinforced within the male population.
“I want to immediately start to work with them and mentor them and move alongside life with them, to lead them and to go on a path of victory.”
Light in the tunnel!
