My Story

Welcome to 4D Wellness! I'm Austin, the founder and head coach at 4D. Here at 4D we’re dedicated to personalizing a program of action, along with the tools needed, to help you overcome addiction and alcoholism. Clients weekly one-on-one sessions will be with me. Here is a little bit of my story, so hopefully you feel comfortable sharing yours with me.

During the earliest years of my life several traumatic events unfolded. Events that left behind some long term fears; abandonment, isolation, and an inherent feeling of inadequacy. Without my knowing, these fears would go on to fuel my drug and alcohol addiction for the next 20+ years.

In middle school I found relief in marijuana and alcohol. Their effects captured me, they made me feel “whole” and I began seeking out even stronger drugs. Quickly I discovered cocaine, xanax, and pain killers – I was in love. My insatiable thirst for narcotics led me to selling drugs to fund my personal drug needs.

High school faded into a blur of moments and when I graduated the memory felt incomplete. I knew I had a problem, but I justified my usage, associating drug addiction with stereotypes far from my reality.

Once in college, I was introduced to oxycontin—a drug that forever changed the trajectory of my life. The combination of oxycontin and cocaine allowed me to seemingly balance academics and work, while underneath, my struggle persisted and worsened. I knew I wanted to stop but I didn't know how, all my attempts were futile. I secretly wanted it all to end; suicidal thoughts dominated most of my alone time. Finally my luck ran out and I got caught selling drugs.

Incarceration stripped away the drugs and alcohol, laying bare the turmoil within. My core fears resurfaced with a vengeance—loneliness, inadequacy, and shame tormented my soul. Determined to stop, I pledged to break free from my addictions and I wrote countless letters home filled with promises of abstinence. I meant every single word of those letters. Yet the moment I was released I found myself overwhelmed and intoxicated once again. Where had my resolve gone? How did this keep happening? Over the next decade, my life became a relentless cycle of active addiction and failed attempts at detoxing. In the last few years my world became very small. Consisting of nothing more than a bottle, my dealer, a needle, and a baggie. Alcoholics and addicts will know this loneliness and despair.

During my attempts to get sober I explored hundreds of methods, teachers, systems, groups, mentors, spiritual practices and disciplines—but the ever elusive sobriety I craved remained beyond grasp. Desperation became the norm: traversing through psych wards, state funded detox units, hospitals, and attempting suicide. My darkest fears had fully manifested– I was gripped by isolation, abandonment, and the weight of inadequacy. Amid this abyss, an unforeseen paradox emerged—a peculiar beauty hidden within the depths of hopelessness, igniting a determination to embrace any means for sobriety. This newfound willingness coupled with humility became the cornerstone of my journey to recovery.

In a final dire effort my two biggest supporters intervened, helping me into a “real” rehab where I arrived with abscesses on my neck and liver damage. To me none of that even mattered, the real damage was internal. I felt like my soul or spirit was gone forever. I was defeated, embarrassed, ashamed and baffled. In rehab I was detoxed for the last time. I was required to attend AA meetings, counseling, and group therapy. I was willing to do anything anyone said would get me sober. Inner peace began to take root and a new era of freedom dawned.

A new purpose began to motivate me, pushing me to aid others on their path to sobriety and freedom. Mentoring thousands of individuals, I delved deep into the mechanics of change, studying patterns, and dissecting the mind-body-soul connection. I became a practitioner of all things holistic health and wellness, imbibing wisdom from both historical and contemporary thought leaders. Through personal trials, errors, and triumphs, I developed a comprehensive system—4th Dimension Wellness—crafted specifically for recovering addicts and alcoholics.

Today, I stand in awe of the life I've been given. The once overwhelming voice of addiction has been silenced. The desire for substances has been extinguished. Tears of freedom and inner peace replaced the tears of despair. This existence, once inconceivable, is now my reality—a life of continuous growth, learning, and evolution. I acknowledge that I don't possess all the answers; I remain a humble student, forever learning.

It's my honor, my privilege, and my all-encompassing passion to introduce you to 4D Wellness. If you find yourself battling, remember, you're not alone. Reach out, my hand is extended to you. Together, we'll navigate this journey, and with unwavering dedication, we'll forge a path toward light, empowerment, and a future brimming with infinite possibilities.

Reviews:

" 4D Wellness gave me the tools to improve my journey in recovery by strengthening, not just my physical health, but my mental and spiritual life as well. The 4D program covered all aspects of what I felt was missing from my life and I'm grateful that it was tailored specifically to my personal goals. The entire staff is incredible, attentive and experienced. But more importantly, they truly care about their clients and fully support them on their path to wellness. Being in my first year of recovery I was intimidated. But the team was able to guide me through, answer all my questions and lay my fears to rest. I would recommend 4D to anyone seeking to enhance their recovery and improve their life - especially those in their first year of sobriety. " -Ben Kontz

"4D is one of the best investments I have made towards my life. Before I started the 4D Wellness sessions with Austin my life was actually pretty awesome! However I am always trying to find ways to better myself and not get stagnant. I only did about 8 sessions with Austin, and they were just what I needed at two years sober. Thanks to 4D Wellness my recovery is stronger, my health is better, and my relationships are thriving because of what I was taught and have applied from my sessions with Austin. We covered communication in my relationships, personalized workout and nutrition plans, personalized meditation practices, building better habits, and all this came with accountability which I strongly disliked but needed! I recommend giving this program a try no matter where you're at in life or your recovery." - Marcus A

Austin and his team changed my life forever: my physical appearance, my mental health, my serenity, and career have all flourished thanks to 4D. I would recommend this program to anyone - addict or not - looking to better their lives!" - Tyler B.
