John-David (JD) Hutchison does not currently work at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres.
John-David is an addiction counsellor, yoga and meditation teacher.
He is living a full life recovered from addiction to alcohol, drugs and co-dependency, and is sober today after spending 18 years trapped in the cycle of addiction and recovery.
His recovery is thanks to psychotherapy, including EMDR, CBT and Buddhist Psychology, as well as his 12-step program and the tools and techniques of yoga. John-David has studied various modalities and developed the Rediscovery Program to teach others the skills and steps towards their own recovery.
John-David takes a similar approach as Dr. Gabor Maté, specifically that addiction is neither a genetic disease or an individual moral failure, but that all addiction, is in fact a case of human development gone askew. As another of John-David’s teachers, Herb K, says – “we need to get underneath the underneath” to find what is the addiction due to.
