What Does the Addiction Recovery Program Cover?

What the Addiction Recovery Coaching Program Covers

The Addiction Recovery Coaching Program is designed to help you overcome the mental and emotional consequences of a variety of addictions—such as chemical, food, gambling, or sexual—and enable you to begin to get your life back. This program is designed for those of you who are advanced enough in your recovery program that you are ready to take on the core issues that are at the bottom of your addiction.

If you have an addiction that has a physical withdrawal syndrome, you need to have this medically managed first, before you will be ready to work on the deeper layers of your addiction that hold these behavioral patterns in place. In this coaching program, you will go layer by layer until you find the core that holds this addiction in place— and with the support, and help of your Higher Power—these life-destroying patterns can be released.

You will not overcome your addiction solely as an act of will. Some of you will need medical management. Some of you will need the services of a psychotherapist. Some will benefit from counseling from an addiction specialist, or attending a support group with others who are also struggling with your addiction. Those of you, who are ready to peel this onion of your addiction to its core, will likewise benefit from the coaching modules of this program.

The course comprises 30 modules, each of which has study text, an assignment you will do, and a feedback sheet. You will send your assignments and feedback sheets to your coach in advance of your next coaching session. There is in addition, a full length, in-depth webinar on recovering from an addiction to augment your coaching sessions.

There are nine coaching sessions. You will schedule each session about 3 weeks apart. We’ve designed this course so you can complete it in 27 weeks.
