Yaye Diallo, from Senegal, lives in Maryland ( MD ), USA, and along with her practice in Wellness & as a licensed nurse, is an Addiction Mentor in the Addiction Department for Back to the Fitrah Mentoring Academy. This department’s main mandate is to provide a healing service for the client, as our services does not revolve around the illness, trauma or disease of the client, as compared to existing 12 Step Programs or other addiction modalities.
This Department consists of 12 Addiction Mentors around the world. The Mentors are educators and mentors (not therapists) sharing our understanding of healing from an Islamic-3 Principles perspective. Addiction and Mental Health Healing are tied together in our services. The 3 Principles is a spiritual psychology where clients see their own beauty and experience healthy feelings. When our clients experience an insight in this direction, they access their wisdom, and head towards “doctoring themselves.”
When I was a teenager, a friend asked, and this one time turned into my using marijuana and alcohol as an escape from reality, for over a decade. Getting intoxicated allowed myself to numb the feelings that I did not want to face. And furthermore, to escape the life which felt so unfair and overwhelming. I was lost and desperately wanted to feel loved and accepted.
One day, I had a realization that all I really wanted was to be a good person and everything I was doing was not aligned to that vision. Once, I opened my heart to Allah, I found myself and finally saw life as it really is. Then, when the Inside Out-Paradigm, also known as the 3 Principles, was introduced to myself in Back to the Fitrah Mentoring Academy, I experienced the spiritual-psychological connection of being a human being along with my spiritual connection to Allah.
My passion to alleviate the needless suffering of Addiction or Mental Health scenarios has been fulfilled by joining the Addiction Department of Back to the Fitrah Mentoring Academy.
