Local psychologist, Don Worth, Ph.D., to host recovery workshop on June 4

WESTON, W.Va. – Don Worth, Ph.D. and local psychologist, will be hosting a workshop on recovery on Saturday, June 4 at 6 PM at the Mon Health Recovery Care Center next to Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston. The public is invited to join the event, titled “Recovery in the 21st Century… not just for substance usage anymore.”

Dr. Worth has an extensive background on recovery and has written the book, “Opioid-Free 1-2-3 A Self Help Guide for Recovery.” During his career, he has created programs with the theme of “Wellness is We-ness,” and developed tools to help with recovery and wellness. Dr. Worth is a practicing marriage and family counselor and psychologist, with over 40 years of experience. He and his wife, Neelam, are owners of the Family and Marital Counseling Center in Weston.

“Don is a really genuine, intelligent and strong advocate and clinician for those with substance abuse disorder,” said Dr. Bruce Gorby, addiction treatment specialist at Mon Health Recovery Care Center. “I consider him a friend and an ally in our fight against addiction.”

Dr. Worth explained that in recovery, a person lives on a scale from illness to wellness. His program is outlined in three steps and his June 4 presentation will focus on the third step – the maintenance phase.

“The first step is to understand opioids; the second step is to recuperate and rebuild mind and body wellness; and the third step is a maintenance phase during which you will develop directional gauges for wellness that will aid in continuing on a path of recovery,” he said.

Currently, Dr. Worth is finishing an anthology documenting the pandemic and has authored a self-help recovery guide. He is also scheduled to present on “Relationship Recovery in These Times” at the American Mental Health Counselors Association Conference in Las Vegas later this June.
