Originally from Casey County, Larry began his training in structured structured recovery in Los Angeles in 1990 with Jerry Polcaro, PhD at New Life and then later with Robert Mellan, PhD at Liberty House. Larry has gained competencies in running nonclinical processing and feedback groups as well as implementing the Gorski Method of Relapse Prevention within the structure of his transitional living, resulting in remarkably lower relapse rates. Larry has continued to work alongside many professionals in the field including James Woods, PhD of Promises Treatment Center and Bernard McInerny, PhD. and Romana Zvereva, M.D. of Betty Ford Treatment Center. Considered an expert in the field, Larry has paved the way for many other professionals to utilize structured transitional living programs as a support vehicle for long-term sobriety.
