Paul Moses credits his arrival at La Hacienda Treatment Center five years ago as “a God thing.” He had worked in another inpatient program for nearly three years and was burned out. He stopped working to regain perspective and found La Hacienda.
“There’s a spirit of kindness that pervades this campus,” he says. “And I have awesome colleagues.”
A licensed professional counselor since 1996, he specializes in chemical dependency, marriage counseling and mental health. He counsels clients in crisis, conducts “grief in recovery” groups, teaches focus groups, and accompanies patients to off-campus 12-step meetings.
Leads Meditation Sessions
He is also one of the counselors who leads patients in optional 35-minute meditation sessions. “Meditation helps patients sleep better and it improves their overall mood,” says Paul. “Their blood pressure decreases. They have more pleasant dreams. They feel better in their bodies.”
In his spare time, Paul enjoys outings with his wife, walking along the river, and building electric guitars from exotic hardwoods.
