About The Life Process Program (LPP)

Our foundation is rooted in the unique Life Process Model of addiction, a brainchild of Stanton Peele who has over 40 years experience in the addiction field.

First introduced to the world in his groundbreaking book, “The Truth About Addiction and Recovery” (co-authored with Archie Brodsky and Mary Arnold in 1991), this approach has garnered global acclaim as a compelling alternative to the traditional 12-Step, disease-centric addiction theories.

Our aim is to provide valuable, original content, drawing upon Stanton’s four decades of experience and extensive research. We genuinely hope our website proves beneficial to you. Should you have any questions, feedback, or suggestions for improvement, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

Dr. Peele inaugurated the Life Process Program as an 8-week residential treatment program in Iowa in 2008. In 2011, Dr Peele partnered with Daithi Conlon to create a digital expansion of the program.

Daithi incorporated The Life Process Program as a business in 2014 and working together Stanton and Daithi not only transformed the Life Process Program for a broader online audience but also assembled a team of verified and approved coaches who understand the non-disease approach to addiction.
Clients of the online program can embark on their journey independently or under the guidance of one of our experienced and vetted coaches.

Our mission is clear

Helping you triumph over addiction and guiding you towards a life filled with purpose and happiness.
