Transforming Addiction Treatment

October 12 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

Joe Bailey (author of Thriving in the Eye of the Hurricane) will talk about creating therapies that employ psychology’s three principles. 

Event Details:

Our guests are all professionals that are changing the face of addiction treatment and creating therapies that employ the three principles of psychology, getting beyond addiction and down to the root cause of addictive thinking. “The 3 P’s facilitates True Recovery from Addictions” with Panel: Danielle Guinaugh, Lisa Portinga, Jacqueline Hollows, Bryan Johnson

Excerpt from Chapter Seven.

…from Chapter Seven: Resilience in Action: The 3 P’s facilitates True Recovery from Addictions”

“What happened in the past may have influenced our present day personal or social problems, but please believe me, there is no answer to these problems in the past. Only in the now can the answer be found.”
“The intensity and importance of such events dissipates as we see that the past is no longer a reality, but a memory carried through time via our own thoughts.”

Sydney Banks, from The Missing Link.

The road to recovery and true serenity is never the same, but with an understanding of the Principles and the process of transformation, we have a compass and a map to get us back on track. We are never really lost, we only think we are.

We are only one thought, one insight away from true freedom, and the ability to thrive in the uncertainty of our daily lives. Many of my clients who suffer from addiction and other traumas see these Principles as a “gift” of understanding that can truly heal their lives.


These three examples are true, and their stories can be your story too. We are all capable of transformation, at any moment. It is not a matter of will power, or luck, but of “insight,” a sight from within showing us the true nature of our human experience. Insight is not under our control but comes from a willingness and openness coupled with a true understanding of the nature of human experience. This insight can be the trigger that awakens our potential for change and transformation. Everyone can thrive, no matter their past trauma or limited opportunities.

Joseph Bailey, from Thriving in the Eye of the Hurricane

About our guests:

Lisa Portinga

In 1998, I began learning, teaching, and understanding the incredible philosophy of 3 Principles. Since, it has been the foundation of my work as a practitioner, and my life as a human! I love seeing the look of knowing and comfort when a person comes back to the understanding of their own functioning, and they realize we are all connected to the whole, not separate from it. I get to tell people this every day. People who are in early recovery, people who are in jail, people who are struggling to connect with their loved ones. I get to tell them this and watch the magic happen!

In the summer of 2014, my life took a turn for the better. I decided to enter Gulf Breeze Recovery in Florida, which is a Three Principles based recovery center. I had relapsed and was struggling with both alcoholism and mental health issues. While there, I had a transformational experience that changed my life for the better. I realized that God loves me no matter what and that was just the beginning. That insight allowed me to love myself and then others especially my wife and kids.

Since then, I have had the honor to share my story numerous times via zoom, in person, writing online and through a podcast. I have also written a book of spiritual quotes titled Matters of the Soul. I live in Denver, CO and am married to a wonderful woman and have two lovely daughters. I am part of a Colorado Three Principles group that I have recently chaired via zoom last winter and spring.

Thriving in the Eye of the Hurricane

Unlocking Resilience in Turbulent Times

What is the Transformation Principle?  This principle is a realization of the fundamental way our mind works that brings about a “transformative resilience” that radically shifts the way we understand ourselves and our chaotic world. It creates an inner strength and self-confidence, enabling us to see it is our thinking that creates our experience and the quality of our lives.

Burnout prevention and resilience in a changing world. As a leader in the field of addiction therapies and strategies for overcoming fear and burnout, Joseph Bailey has piloted a number of programs on transformative resilience at the Mayo Clinic, The University of Minnesota Medical School―Center for Spirituality and Healing, addiction treatment centers, and healthcare facilities. Thousands of students, clients, and professionals have been inspired and educated by his Transformation Principle. He has provided his program of practical tips and proven methods to first responders and a variety of professions including businesses, social service agencies, hospitals, universities, and school communities.
