Alcohol Addiction permanently
With Dr. Stanton Peele's online Life Process Program you CAN
The Life Process Alcohol Program was developed to provide an alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). We wanted to create a non 12-step alternative recovery program for those who do not agree with the 12-step philosophy or did not find success with AA. Alcohol addiction affects all aspects of one’s life, no matter how much we convince ourselves that the problem is contained.
With the Life Process Alcohol Program, you have the opportunity to overcome your alcohol addiction on your own and from the privacy of your own home.
Alcohol is the substance with which the most people confront problems. In a way, the wide prevalence of misuse of alcohol can be reassuring to you, since so many people have had to come to grips with this substance in one fashion or another.
And there ARE a wide variety or ways to resolve your relationship to alcohol. To some degree, you will need to fashion your own solution. But LPP leads you to understand the role alcohol plays in your life, what gaps it fills, and what directions to pursue to find other ways to satisfy your needs. And, please note how many, many people have made this transition, including through LPP.
Your recovery is in your hands
It is important for you to know that an independent, self-motivated cure for alcohol addiction is possible. You can fight your own alcohol addictions and learn to live an addiction free life once more.
The Life Process Alcohol Program© does not ‘fix you’. It is an aid to help you recover from alcohol 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 alcoholism treatment 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.watch the video download sample content

Questions about alcohol addiction
What is alcohol addiction or dependence?
Alcohol can be misused in many ways, from less to more severely. The World health Organization (WHO) states, “Alcohol misuse is a general term for any level of risk, ranging from hazardous drinking to alcohol dependence.” A useful short definition of alcohol addiction or dependence is: “continual drinking although drinking has clearly become harmful, even destructive, for the person and those close to them.”
How do I know if I have a drinking problem?
Only you can evaluate whether, and how severely, alcohol is adversely affecting your life. This level can vary over your lifetime. The World Health Organization currently recommends not more than 4 drinks on any day or 14 per week for men and no more than 3 drinks on any given day, or 7 per week for women. These are health-related guidelines – it is for you to decide for yourself if alcohol is unduly impacting other important areas of your life.
What are the symptoms of alcohol dependence?
Alcohol dependence and addiction include a change in tolerance level or withdrawal. A typical symptom of alcohol dependence would be when you find that drinking — or being sick from drinking — often interferes with taking care of your home or family. A full list of the symptoms of alcohol dependence can be found in our alcohol addiction FAQs page.
Will I suffer from withdrawal from alcohol if I stop drinking?
Not everyone experiences withdrawal from heavy drinking, including even severe AUDs. There is no definitive way to tell in advance. Once again, this is an individual question for you to assess through your own experience. However, if you have been drinking regularly and heavily, the chances you may have some withdrawal symptoms are increased. The severity can vary hugely from headaches and nausea to, in extreme cases, seizures and death.
