About the Speaker:
Peter Godfrey, MSW, LCSW, LCASA
Quality Manager, Four Circles Recovery
Peter is originally from Fort Pierce, Florida but has been in the Blue Ridge Mountains since 2002. He has approximately 19 years serving at risk populations and 9 years in a clinical setting. Those settings include residential (youth and adult), front country and back country, outpatient, day-treatment, substance abuse intensive out-patient, family, child protection service, jail and court settings. He obtained his MSW from Western Carolina University suma cum laude with an emphasis in substance abuse and is a fully licensed clinician.
Peter approaches each client as a helper. He strongly believes in a straight forward approach which emphasizes buy-in reminding clients that external motivation and internal motivation are not mutually exclusive. He helps clients understand links between behavior and mental health – “Do it, Live it, Become it.” With families, he helps the client and parents realize that they have a common goal; we all want the client to be happy, healthy and independent, especially from addiction. He believes in wilderness and experiential treatment and the power of obstacles to teach. Necessity is the mother of invention –Plato; and nature is an excellent coach.
He originally began with Four Circles in 2009 as a wilderness guide achieving highest guide level in 2011. Peter is currently working as Quality Manager at Four Circles Recovery Center in Asheville, NC. He oversees outcome study, customer satisfaction, compliance, and trains and oversees wilderness and residential direct care staff.
