A Force of Four Ounces Deflects a Thousand Pounds
It takes less energy to embrace mental health as a skill (e.g., four ounces) than it takes to live a life with a mental health disorder (e.g., a thousand pounds). As a Master Licensed Alcohol Drug Counselor and Certified Anger Resolution Therapist who specializes in LADC alcohol and drug abuse services and anger management, I witness it all the time. The amount of mental and physical energy it takes to abuse drugs and alcohol, surrender control of anger, and sabotage a life is beyond measure. By harnessing, redirecting that energy there is nothing, absolutely nothing that those who struggle cannot make happen, and that includes living well.
MyDiscover is your best resource for intervention, education, counseling, and support for lasting behavioral change. We are passionate in our very best attempts to help as many people possible realize the power of control surrendered to external events, substances, and people. Based upon our simple principle: “Whatever you are experiencing, you are allowing happen,” change is in your reach. It is up to you to make it happen. After all, mental health is a skill, and as a skill you either put it into practice or lay victim to it, for you are not distressed or despaired over things, rather, you distress and despair your self by how you perceive things. Through our dynamic MyDiscover Model, we offer: LADC alcohol and drug abuse counseling, anger management training, along with intervention, evaluations, and out patient educational and support services to include 27/7 online education.

MyDiscover Inc. is a 501-C (4) nonprofit organization incorporated in 1993 under the then name: Offenders At-Risk Educational Systems (1993-1995), and later as Offenders At-Risk Community Networking (1995-2001). During this period (1993-2001), we researched and developed efficient skill approaches to addressing compensatory cycles of anger-based aggression, entitlement-based coercive power and control (domestic violence), as influenced by the disinhibition, desensitization, and reinforcement to alcohol and drug abuse. The three influences outline are the top three contributing factors to at-risk offending/reoffending. During this period, (1993-2001), The Founder, Peter Stone researched and developed Select Emotional Alternatives Cognitive Application-Processing (SEACAP), a cognitive-social systems skills approach to evaluating and providing intervention, education, and counseling for those at-risk for self and other abusive behaviors. Shown to be effective in its efficient applications, SEACAP has been shared with correctional settings, university institutions, and psychological firms across the country for implementation and review. The referral pool who received this model consist of community citizens, corporations, attorneys, physicians, family and district courts, United States Coast Guard, and challenged individuals.
As a 501-C (4) nonprofit, MyDiscover is not a charity, it is an advocacy. As an advocacy, we do not rely on State or Federal grants to fund our programming. The benefit of this is we do not have to adhere to “cookie-cutter,” one-size-fits-all applications. As an independent organization, in terms of our programming, we support and advocate Evidence Based Best Practiced procedures in order to maintain program efficacy and integrity. In keeping with the ideal of Evidenced Based Best Practiced programs, we are encouraged to provide what we find helpful through our continued commitment continued research and development of our model. Our organization is made up of professionals and individuals who collectively have over 80 years of service to those who struggle with their addictions and other abusive behaviors. Since we are not a charity, the revenue that we acquire is put directly back into the organization. It is for this very reason that we encourage donations; for the fact remains: We are only as good as the people we help.
