Many of us have been told that addiction is a chronic disease that cannot be cured. We at the Life Process Program® do not believe this is the case. We believe addiction is a compelling, destructive involvement that — because it detracts from other areas of people’s lives — forces them to rely with greater exclusivity on the addictive experience they get from the involvement, whether with drugs or anything else.
During the Life Process Program® you will be given the opportunity to read and learn more about addictive behaviours, watch videos from renowned addiction expert Dr Stanton Peele and apply those readings and the principles behind them to your own situation. You will spend time setting goals for living an addiction free life and you will develop the skills and tools necessary to accomplish those goals. Most importantly, you will do all of these things while going about your day to day life.
The Life Process Program® is truly anonymous. You can complete the program and change your life without anyone knowing you have sought help for your addictive behavior.
The Life Process Program® is based on Dr. Peele’s decades of research and involvement in the public debate regarding addictive behaviors. Dr. Peele designed the Life Process Program® to help as many people as possible using the most effective methods possible.
The Life Process Program® has been completely customised to your specific addiction, whether it is alcohol, drugs or addiction. We are currently working on customising the material to other addictions.
Because the Life Process Program® is offered in an online format you have the convenience of completing the program while still going about your day to day life. No need to take a leave from work or be apart from your loved ones for an extended period of time, you can complete everything from the privacy of your own home.
Once you complete the Life Process Program® you will have the opportunity to participate in mutual support with other graduates if you wish, and experience question and answer sessions with Dr. Peele.
We don’t oppose the twelve steps for those who adhere to them. But Life Process Program® does not approach addiction as a disease against which you are powerless – for us, this way of thinking reduces your ability to combat addiction.
Life Process Program® is for people who are uncomfortable – like we are – with such ideas, or who may have failed with them, which many people do, and who seek a different path, one with proven success.
Dr. Peele is a world-renowned addiction expert, author and therapist, who has remained prominently at the forefront of the addiction field for four decades, challenging and changing the way people understand addiction and recovery.
Since publishing his first book, Love and Addiction, in 1975, Stanton has been one of the most influential voices in the ongoing public debate about the nature of addiction.
"A revolutionary approach to the treatment of addictions. This should be of enormous help to people struggling with them."
Aaron T. Beck, M.D. Professor of psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania; founder of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
