Christine Galli has dedicated her profession to the healing of individuals who suffer from Addictions and mental illness (Co-Occurring Disorders).  The onset of her professional journey beginning in 1986, developed and evolved through different levels of care, from residential, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), outpatient services, to education programs in the public high school system. 

 

Her experience has provided the ability to navigate between community systems i.e., Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court, General District and Circuit Courts, Pre-trial/Probation Offices (local, State and Federal), VASAP, Judges, Attorneys and Department of Health Professionals, allowing the most effective advocacy for her clients. 

Additionally, she collaborates with medical professionals, Inpatient and Partial hospitals, Residential treatments, and an array of community therapist to provide a holistic approach to wellness.

 

Christine philosophical belief is that Addiction/Co-Occurring Disorders destroys the mind, body, and spirit and the only path to wellness is focus on “Healing Souls and Saving Lives”.

"Getting healthy is a pleasure seeking enterprise.
Success is dependent on motivation and preparation.
Durable abstinence happens to those who discovers life's natural highs, and have the confidence and means to shape a life for themselves that provides peace of mind."
