Infused Being Therapy Mission Statement by Bryan Crusius

Dallas Addiction Recovery Therapy

If you or someone you care about struggles with alcohol, co-dependence, PTSD or substance abuse – help is available at
Infused Being Therapy and Counseling –  in a safe recovery environment.

We encourage family members of the addicted individual or PTSD survivor –
to also attend counseling to ‘un-hook’ negative habitual behaviors;
and begin their own recovery from addictive patterns enmeshed with the addict.

John ‘Bryan’ Crusius, LPC, LPC-S

My mission is to bring the highest level of care possible to any who wish to be free from addictions, codependence, PTSD and trauma.

Treating the Whole Person

I believe in treating the ‘whole’ person: Body, Mind and Spirit. My practice is ecumenical with regard to ‘Spirit’. I agree with AA (Alcoholics Anonymous): Recovery from addiction is difficult to impossible without reliance on a Higher Power.

Infused Being Therapy and Counseling

I call my practice Infused Being Therapy. I strongly believe that recovery from addiction and trauma is a process. For successful recovery and healing – clients have to be willing to ‘let go and let their Higher Power’ guide and heal them. This is the basic process; there are many details, much understanding and deeper self-knowledge to be attained along the way. This is the process of Infused Being Therapy.

Supportive Energy Therapies: Integrated Healing

I use various Energy Therapies as an adjunct to traditional cognitive talk therapy. Much research has been done on acupuncture and related energy healing methodologies. Many believe (and I agree) that it is possible to support intellectual talk therapy with energy healing. In my experience, energy healing treats more of the whole person; including Body and Spirit.

Treatment Philosophy

I call my treatment philosophy Infused Being Therapy. I could have called it ‘Spirit-Infused’ Recovery Therapy.

It has been my experience that Recovery Therapy is most effective in individuals who:

1. Are willing to be ruthlessly honest with themselves
2. Allow the possibility of the existence of a Higher Power, Universal Intelligence, or a Source
3. Embrace comprehensive change

Without these basic qualities present – there is no need to waste my time and yours. Family members often bring in addicted loved ones, hoping for recovery and change through counseling therapy; but the addict remains hostile and/or in denial.

The Addict or Trauma Sufferer MUST Be Willing to Change

This is the basic ‘agreement’ needed for successful therapy or counseling. Without an honest inventory of ‘where you are now’ – and a willingness to be ruthlessly honest with oneself in the pursuit of positive change – the chances of successful recovery are non-existent.

Yes: It is possible that an addict can stop  – for a while – alcohol or substance abuse without a  deep self-examination and spiritual growth. But without a deep self-examination, connection to spirit and the willingness to change – what remains is rage, self-hatred and negativity. Chances of relapse in these cases is almost 100%.
