I believe that a successful recovery program includes both abstinence and spirituality. For a Jewish person in recovery this includes Jewish Wisdom.
I believe that each person’s journey is unique. It is my philosophy that a good recovery requires a good holistic program that addresses the unique needs of the body, mind and soul of each person, with a spiritual focus existing at the core to acquire real authentic change and authentic joy.
I have been involved in the Addiction Recovery community and the Torah community for 19 years. It was through my personal journey that I came to understand the power of a program of Jewish Wisdom and a program of abstinence as in the 12 Steps programs of recovery. I am certified in both Addictions and Counselling with Honours.
I meet with clients who have issues with addiction, and family members as well. I also meet with individuals looking to better their life situations; relationships, family, career etc. .
I am an Asst. Chaplin to the Toronto Jails on behalf of JF & CS (Jewish Family and Child Services).

Lawrence has many skills that I feel compliment him as a person who enjoys working with others. These skills I believe work well when working with people in general but especially with those who have the challenge of addiction and the journey of recovery.
Some of these skills are: kindness, compassion, knowledge of addictions and counseling, and a solid rooting in spirituality. He has a commitment and passion to his philosophy and approach to addictions councelling, and wiliness to learn and ask for feedback.
Lawrence is a very eloquent man who is passionate about working in the recovery field.
