    Kevin Bandy: ICADC, CAP - Co-Founder

    Kevin co-founded Voyage after two decades of experience in substance use disorder treatment. ​He had previously been Clinical Director at The Hanley Center. Beginning recovery from​​ substance use issues in 1990, Kevin did the hard work of figuring out how to be a teenager in sobriety, reuniting with his family, returning to high school, and finding his place in the local Twelve Step community.
    In 1997, he began his career in treatment, accepting an entry level position as peer staff in an adolescent treatment center. Since then Kevin has worked at all levels of care within the treatment continuum, from tech to Executive Director.

    Kevin’s passion is working with young men and their families, and he has developed multiple family recovery programs over his years in the field. He believes that recovery is possible for all members of the family and that long term remission must be a team effort. When he is not working with patients or families, you’ll find Kevin immersed in the experiential programming at Voyage. He's a passionate ambassador of recovery in the sun and saltwater of beautiful South Florida, and is committed to helping young men find and nurture their passion while in treatment.

    Ivo Dimov: LCSW-QS, CAP - Clinical Director 

    Ever since moving to the United States from his native Bulgaria, a small and beautiful country in southeastern Europe, Ivo has believed in the pursuit of happiness and freedom. For more than a decade, he has brought this passion into his work in the field of addiction.

    Ivo is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University, where he obtained his Master’s degree of Social work. He is a certified addiction professional, and is in the process of becoming a licensed clinical social worker. He has additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, and is working on extending his clinical knowledge in the field of bio- and neurofeedback therapy techniques. He has gained valuable experience in many different levels of the field, such as a detox counselor, wellness and experiential activity coordinator, recovery advocate, counselor assistant, and a primary therapist.

    As a man in recovery, Ivo personally knows the transformative and healing power of the 12 steps process. He believes in the power of individual and group therapy in addressing cognitive distortions and negative beliefs that contribute to addiction disease. Ivo also has witnessed and believes in the neuroplasticity of the brain, a process which can be enhanced by innovative experiential activities and help young men overcome their addiction.

    Non-Binary:  Understanding Sexuality, Gender Diversity, and Alternative Sexual Lifestyles

    Dr. Carol Clark

    Abstract: Young adults are surrounded by conflicting messages on sexuality and sexual expression.  State legislatures, including Florida, have made it risky to identify as “other than gender assigned at birth”.  As therapists, it is critical that we understand a broad range of sexual preference and expression and build a language of acceptance and inclusion that lessens the suffering of those who present to us as such.  We need to understand especially the ways emerging young adults talk about and define themselves and “find their way” sexually.  This discussion/workshop will explore a broad range of topics including definitions of lesbian, bi-sexual, gay, transgender, gender dysphoria, non-binary as well as current and expected Florida legislative updates on these topics.   

    We will discuss forces that shape a person’s search for sexual identity, including birth gender and gender expression, traumatic events especially around “coming out/disclosure” and public statements of identity and sexual preference. 

    Important in this talk will be some of the Florida legislative changes that have made it difficult to Support LGBTQ population. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define LGBTQ+
    2. Articulate the difference between sexuality and gender. 
    3. Define gender dysphoria.
    4. Explain a typical process of “transitioning.” 
    5. Explain when to refer a struggling client to different levels of care, including medical.

    As she recognized a commonality in the people she saw over the years, which mirrored those issues she dealt with in her personal life, she conceptualized a way of looking at our highly stimulating lifestyles as the result of a perpetually addictive state that disconnects us from each other and the universal life force. It is from this personal growing awareness that she wrote her book Addict America: The Lost Connection – a life-altering guide for all people and an excellent clinical resource. Addict America: The Lost Connection describes and defines a new viewpoint as to the elemental nature of addiction and how it affects our brains. By understanding the fundamental nature of addiction and applying the healing strategies set forth in this book, readers will find themselves reestablishing Connections in their lives that seemed lost forever. www.DrCarolClark.com  www.AddictAmerica.net

    Obsessed:  Demystifying the Diagnosis & Treatment of OCD

    Melanie Smith, PhD, LMHC, CEDS-C

    Description: 

    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by obsessions (repetitive, intrusive, and distressing thoughts) and compulsions (repetitive behaviors or mental acts performed in response to the obsessions). It's important to note that treatment for OCD typically involves a combination of therapy, medication, and ongoing supportive measures and that most clinicians do not get specialized training in treating OCD as part of traditional clinical education.  While many clinicians may find treating individuals with OCD to be daunting and intimidating; quality evidence-based treatments, such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) are available and highly effective in managing OCD symptoms and improving quality of life.  As OCD often co-occurs with other mental health conditions, this training will include considerations for differential diagnosis, as well as guidance on how to develop treatment plans when individuals experience co-morbid OCD, including the use of exposure and response prevention (ERP).

    Learning Objectives:

    1)      Participants will be able to assess clients for overlapping symptom presentations and differentiate OCD from other diagnoses.
    2)      Participants will be able to explain the rationale for utilizing emotional exposure strategies for the management of OCD symptoms.
    3)      Participants will be able to create an individualized exposure hierarchy using a sample case.

    No Escape: What SUDs and Neuroscience Teach Us About Living Our Best Lives 

    Judith Grisel, Ph.D

    Description: 

    To be human is to be discontent. For as long as we’ve been on the planet, human beings have sought ways to dodge unpleasant experiences and improve lackluster ones. This tendency is responsible for all addictions, but is also the catalyst for many of our greatest achievements. Explore the evolutionary imperative that fosters “using”, as well as its benefits and costs, with Judy Grisel, a person in long-term recovery as well as a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Bucknell University.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Illustrate how the brain ensures discontentedness to promote wellbeing
    2. Describe how addictive substances, as well as process addictions like overeating, gambling, or compulsive use of pornography, exploit and undermine brain circuits that are critical for a successful life
    3. Understand what the pandemic of ‘using’ has to teach us about coping effectively with suffering
    4. Brainstorm ways to help ourselves, and our clients, realize flourishing lives, even in the midst of pervasive angst

    The Four Relationship Styles: How Attachment theory can help you in your search for lasting love

    Anita Knight Kuhnley, Ph.D., LPC

    Description: 

    Attachment serves a regulatory function and is the part of the attachment behavioral system. This internal system is activated when we are under stress. Based on our autobiographical narrative and relationship blueprints we develop one of four relationship styles. Each style has unique strengths and challenges. Identifying your primary style and understanding the neurobiology of your style and how it influences emotional intelligence, emotion regulation, and the activation of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system are critical. Many of the symptoms we see manifest in the counseling office are associated with attachment injuries, psychological insults, or relational trauma. Treatment interventions and assessments can be tailored to include research-based interventions from an attachment informed and trauma-informed approach. Participants will gain a tool kit of assessments and interventions to use that help promote secure attachment and emotion regulation.

    Learning Objectives:

    1.     Identify and assess the four attachment styles.
    2.     Assess activation of the attachment behavioral system and a typology of trauma responses.
    3.     Apply interventions from a tool kit of research-based techniques to enhance attachment security and emotion regulation.
