What is the Life Process Program?
The non-12 step, secular addiction treatment option
The Life Process Program was developed to provide a self help alternative option to the standard treatments such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). We wanted to create a viable alternative treatment program for those that do not agree with the 12-step philosophy or did not find success with the steps. There is always hope.
How the Life Process Program works
The life process online recovery program is broken down into eight parts, or modules, which consist of reading material prepared by Dr. Peele and exercises relevant to the topic of that module.
The exercises are not a test of your knowledge of the material, but rather an opportunity for you to reflect on your addictive behavior and apply the material to your life.
When you sign-up you will be assigned a dedicated Life Process Program coach (and we let you choose whether you want to be assigned a male or female coach). Clients receive personalized feedback and support from their dedicated coach when they submit each exercise. All new clients can also schedule a FREE 20 minute introductory coaching session through our secure integrated online video conferencing system with their dedicated coach.
The Life Process Program® isn’t magic…
It asks you to recognize your own strength and your ability to change. But with this recognition comes responsibility.
We at the LPP have helped many people to recover from addiction with our private, affordable and effective online addiction treatment program. We know how this process works.
Our approach is an alternative to the AA and other 12 step addiction recovery programs, and one that puts YOU in control of your recovery. But, ultimately, in the long run, it will be your decisions, your values, your purpose in life that makes this happen.

Dr. Peele introduces each module
Each module of the program is introduced personally by Dr. Peele.
In the videos, Dr. Peele describes the key concepts and he challenges you to apply the learnings to your own individual situation. The program consists of eight modules, each of them addressing a key component of your recovery:
- Self Reflection
- Greater Goals
Each module also includes downloadable reading material, addressing the module in much more detail. Some clients like to read every sentence in detail, others prefer to skim through the reading material and proceed directly to the exercises.
Submit exercises and receive feedback
A major component in the Life Process Program is the exercises that accompany each module. You will be asked to complete a series of questions that will challenge your understanding of the ideas and how to use them to recover.
The exercises are not a test, and there are no right or wrong answers. They are open questions designed to get you thinking in ways that will help you better understand how to fight and beat your addiction.
When you have completed each exercise you will submit this to your coach for review. Your coach will go through each of your exercises and provide you with detailed written feedback to help guide you through your recovery.
Schedule a session with your dedicated coach
When you sign-up you will be assigned a dedicated Life Process Program coach (you choose whether you want a male or female coach). Within the coaching area, you can access your coach’s availability diary and schedule a 1-1 meeting. You choose the date and time that suits you, and you select your preferred format:
Your first 20-minute introductory session is free. This is a great way to get to know your coach. After that, you can purchase additional one hour sessions from as little as $70 per sessions. These additional coaching sessions are completely optional and can be purchased at any point in the program.
Write your Life Story
Revisiting your life story is a critical way to explore your choices and the impact they have had on you and those around you.
Don’t worry, we are not going to start probing for trauma or ask you to dwell indefinitely on your earliest memories. But we do believe that it is important for you to reflect on the journey that you have travelled through life to bring you to where you are today.
Once your life story is complete, we will begin to focus on moving beyond the negatives you may identify toward a positive future with the life of purpose you have always wanted.
Join our coach-led weekly online group meetings
We want to provide you with opportunities to interact and practice the coping and social skills that can help you move away from addictive activities and back into the vibrant world that awaits you.
Whether you talk or have your camera turned on or just listen is up to you. These meetings give you a good sense of how we approach addictions. At the same time, they provide needed support and encouragement! For those of you who are already meeting with coaches, we believe this group dynamic will add a new dimension of support and help people in thinking through their addictive issues with others.
