It is with great sadness and heaviness in my heart that we announce Terence T. Gorski’s sudden passing. Anyone that knew Terry knew he committed his life and career to helping anyone who suffered with addiction and mental health disorders. Terry helped us all understand that addiction is an insidious disease that knows no social status or geographic boundaries and believed every single person could recover.
As the pioneer of relapse prevention and with the development of The Gorski-CENAPS Model of Recovery and Relapse Prevention, he has helped millions of people abstain from drugs and alcohol.
It’s been our honor to know Terry 25 years, he was and remains one of the finest people we have ever known.
There was no one I ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved with all his being without expecting anything in return. Terry made me smile bigger, laugh louder, and love more.
Terry’s mission remains and will be carried on through his legacy to bring hope, healing and support to those and their families struggling with addiction and other behavioral disorders all over the world.
