FAQs

Is the Life Process Program® available worldwide?

Yes. One of the main reasons Dr. Peele decided to adapt his Life Process Program® for online use is so that it would be available worldwide. The program is managed entirely online, so you can work on it weather you or at home, at work or away travelling.

Is the Life Process Program® a 12-Step program like AA or GA?

No, it is not. Though you may experience similarities between the processes, the Life Process Program® is fundamentally different from a 12-step program. First, we do not believe you are powerless. Just the opposite, in fact, we believe that you are the only person with the power to change your addictive behavior. Other differences include the fact that we do not require that you surrender to a higher power and that we do not require you to attend meetings for the rest of your life in order to maintain change.

Has the Life Process Program® ever been tested on alcoholics or addicts

Yes, it has. The Life Process Program® was utilized in residential treatment centers before Dr. Peele decided to adapt the program to be offered online. While being used in treatment centers the Life Process Program® consistently produced a success rate better than 65%.

What sort of techniques does the Life Process Program® use?

The Life Process Program® is primarily considered an educational program in the bibliotherapy model. Bibliotherapy is a sort of guided self help and has been rated as one of the most effective methods for combating addictive behaviors.  The Life Process Program® also introduces the client to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Community Reinforcement And Family Therapy (CRAFT), and Social Network Therapy.

Why do we not believe in the theory of addiction being a disease?

Despite a widespread conception in society that addiction is a disease, there are no conclusive studies proving this belief.  Treating addiction like a disease removes personal responsibility from the equation.  We strive to reinforce that you are in control of your life and can change your behavior.  For more information on this topic from Dr. Peele please click here.

Why should I choose an online program?

Research and experience show that online support may be as effective as face-to-face assistance, as well as being more accessible and easier to maintain. An online program is ideal for people who desire anonymity, privacy, convenience, and easy access.  It is a great choice for people who have a busy schedule, who are limited in their ability to physically attend a traditional program, or who are simply more comfortable with online communication.  The Life Process Program® is not intended to replace traditional therapy and/or medical advice.  For more details please see our Terms and Conditions.

Each participant needs a computer with internet access (high speed recommended). Reading material is provided in PDF format. Exercise worksheets are downloadable in Microsoft Word format (If you do not have access to Microsoft Office, we recommend OpenOffice.org for free software).

The most important thing a participant needs is a willingness to honestly examine their life and a desire to change.
