  • I spent years trying to quit drinking. I went to AA meetings and tried working the steps, but I always ended up back at the bar. Things changed for me once I found the Life Process Program. I finally found something that made sense to me and helped me quit drinking for good.

  • I attended Gamblers Anonymous for 10 years, and relapsed over 20 times. When I realized that I am not powerless and not diseased, I finally took responsibility for my addiction and was able to stop, without going to those meetings I hated with a passion. I am no longer sentenced to a life of meetings with sociopaths, liars, benefit cheats and criminals. For years I was told that GA was the only thing that worked, even though I had seen first hand that it didn’t. Thank you, Dr. Peele!

  • I couldn’t afford to spend the money or time to attend a residential treatment center. I am so glad I found Dr. Peele’s program. It has given me the help and support I need without requiring a second mortgage on my house.

  • I didn’t like the idea that I had a disease and I couldn’t really do anything about it. Being powerless just didn’t make sense to me. I had done all this to myself, so I needed to be the one to get myself out of it. With the support of my family and friends, and especially Dr. Peele’s program I was able to do just that. I have never been happier, or healthier.

Your recovery is in your hands

It is important for you to know that an independent, self-motivated cure for addiction is possible. You can fight your own addiction and learn to live an addiction free life once more.

The Life Process Program does not ‘fix you’. It is an aid to help you recover from addiction, to allow you to mature out from your addiction more quickly, more surely, and more completely by examining your life from the perspectives presented here and following the self-help guidelines provided.

More than anything, the Life Process Program makes it clear that you are the primary agent of change. Obviously, this program is not in tune with most addiction theory and therapy, which overwhelmingly favors the twelve-step philosophy. These twelve-step programs insist on the premise that the individual is powerless over an addiction. In reviewing the extensive research on alcohol and other addiction treatment, however, we actually find that self-efficacy therapies, which focus on the individual’s power and self-reliance, succeed the best. If you are searching for alternatives to 12 step approaches such as the AA, you have come to the right place.
