Mirror Image is an addiction treatment innovation created and first implemented by Talbott Recovery founder G. Douglas Talbott, M.D. Mirror Image participants go to other treatment facilities in the Atlanta area and work with newly admitted patients in those drug and alcohol treatment programs. The purpose is to assist Talbott Recovery patients in overcoming the myopia that often accompanies the disease of addiction. What Dr. Talbott knew was that patients can see the effects of the disease of addiction in others but are unable to see those same effects in themselves. This innovative program allows patients to gain new insight, and they consistently report that their experience in Mirror Image has had a profound effect on their recovery.
Participants take part in Mirror Image in the mornings, five days a week. Mirror Image patients then return to Talbott Recovery for afternoon groups and appointments with physicians and clinicians.
