from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
“This was a hard-core 14-day treatment conducted in a lockdown environment in which Sean was grouped with patients who were experiencing serious addiction problems,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of remaining anonymous.
“Sean worked on a technique called, ‘mindfulness,’ which is a type of meditation exercise that gives an individual a type of checklist in his mind that allows him time to consider what he is going to say before he actually says it.
“It’s like installing a switch that slows things down.”
Since completing the two-week program after entering Stage 1 of the NHL/NHLPA behavioral health program, Avery has continued to receive counseling, with regularly scheduled sessions with a personal therapist in New York. These sessions will continue for an indefinite period, perhaps for the remainder of Avery’s career, if not life.
