About Lyric Recovery Services, Inc.

Vision, Mission & Philosophy

Treatment Philosophy:
The treatment team at Lyric understands that addiction has many contributing factors. Based on this, we have created a comprehensive approach that considers the physical, emotional and social issues involved.  We believe that integrating expertise in addiction, clinical psychology, social support, and family facilitation offers clients the best opportunity of success in the work to free our clients from a life held hostage by alcohol and drugs as well as untreated anxiety, social isolation, depression and trauma. Each client’s recovery path is an individual story that has yet to be written.  We are here to help that recovery story begin.

 Vision Statement:
 Lyric Recovery supports people in engaging the  challenge of addiction, expanding their understanding of  themselves, and building the necessary skills required to sustain a healthier lifestyle.

 Mission Statement:
 Lyric’s mission is to provide holistic treatment
and  support for sobriety in an integrated
manner. In order to manifest this vision and carry out this mission  the program is committed to building a recovery environment that supports a
client centered approach and that encourages personal growth and long term recovery.

Who We Serve

Lyric Recovery Outpatient Treatment Programs cater to the individual needs of adults with recent or current substance use disorders or addiction who do not require residential treatment. By focusing on core strengths and keeping individuals in their own homes or communities whenever possible, Lyric Recovery Outpatient Treatment programs help adults handle their addictions and regain balance in their lives 
by treating more than just their symptoms.
At Lyric Recovery we understand that sometimes the road to recovery can be made less fearful if made part of one's established routines. Lyric Recovery’s Outpatient Treatment Programs allow clients to continue to work, remain in school, and stay in their home and community, while receiving confidential treatment for drug and alcohol dependency.
Our programs are flexible and customized for each individual client. 
Individuals receive one-on-one counseling/psychotherapy sessions, family counseling/therapy sessions, group therapy/education modalities, as well as aftercare services.

​ ​​​​​    Lisa Garrido       
    Yoga Instructor    
For some of us, the mat is the first place we ask ourselves, “What do ‘I’ need?”. For some of us, the mat is the first place we ‘see’ ourselves as the practice reflects back to us the truth—the get-down-and-dirty-in-this-very-moment-inner inquiry-personal-truth. And now, for those with whom we journey together, I encourage the same—a safe place, a refuge that you have the power to create and support all the time--watching, listening, evolving, and letting go.
With 20+ years in the healing/expressive arts and my passion for yin yoga and meditation, I specialize in trauma and emotional freedom, cancer support, children, and addiction/recovery. Since 2012, I have been on an amazing path of teaching full-time and feel such a deep reverence and gratitude for sharing the transformational power of yoga, mindfulness, and breath awareness. When we practice together, expect to breathe, expect to slow down, expect to feel your body and notice your thoughts as you discover the power of your practice and how it lives deep within your breath and how the true strength is in the courage to let go. We will travel into deeper states of acceptance and loving-kindness while exploring energetic alignments and creative visualization led through meditation practices.

“I'm a substance and process addiction counselor with vast and varied experience helping others to find recovery through a variety of treatment options, challenges, and past failures. I am an interventionist. It's my passion for and belief in the recovery process that led me to help individuals and families get treatment for their addictions and mental health disorders. When a person and/or family realizes they've had enough, then the recovery process can begin. For me, it's been a journey across the treatment landscape, which has changed for the better over the years. I sought education, certification, and clinical work in order to ensure that the breadth of my training would complement the depth of my experience. From working one-to-one with alcoholics or addicts, to leading group sessions in inpatient/residential and outpatient programs, to monitoring someone through detox, from helping those with eating disorders - gambling - sex addiction, dual diagnosis cases to cutters, I've had the privilege of being present for countless miracles as well as the lessons of tragic failure. I enter homes where families are in crisis from alcohol, drug, and/or process addiction. I lead them in a sometimes desperate effort to reclaim a struggling loved-one. They don't know me, but they need me. I want you to get to know me, I want to earn your trust, and I want to help you.”

“I love being a substance abuse counselor and interventionist. I am passionate about helping people overcome their dependency to alcohol and drugs, along with process addictions. I use therapeutic tools to help clients see that they are stronger than any drug and that life is so much more without being dependent on a substance. I never ask a client to do something that I have not done myself. It's extremely rewarding to watch clients grow and gain their lives back, and to help them mature in different ways, such as their thoughts, emotions, and actions. My goal is to help you to achieve and maintain abstinence from addictive chemicals and behaviors. I join and help you along the way as we share the obstacles and successes together. I am honored and feel humbled to be able to walk with you on your recovery journey. I have been given a second chance, and I offer that to you. I want you to know that there is always hope, so do not give up. I am thankful that my family did not give up on me when I got sober over 10 years ago.”

Joe Clements

      ​​​​​Group Facilitator​​        

​   ​​​​​​​​​​​
Joe grew up in the small surf-skate town of Santa Cruz CA. Early in life Joe sought relief in drugs, alcohol and punk rock music as an escape from a broken home, family addiction, and the dissatisfaction of youth. During his early twenties he got clean from substances and found a meaningful outlet playing and touring in punk
bands. Haunted by familiar feelings of dissatisfaction and depression, he found himself returning to active addiction at the age of 30. After some time experiencing the ongoing suffering of active addiction, he found recovery in 12 step communities which lead him to get involved in Buddhism and Mindfulness. Joe sought the guidance from longtime childhood friend and begin to use the practices of Buddhism to heal the underlying pain he had been unable to face. With 8 years clean and a dedicated Buddhist practice, Joe is taking on the role of teaching others what he has learned.  Joe is dedicated to bring meditation practices to those who suffer from addiction. He is currently engaged in the process of being trained to facilitate Mindfulness and Buddhist meditation, adding to his already thoughtful and effective approach to mindfulness based meditation.
