You have arrived here (probably) because you are looking for alternatives to the outdated Disease Concept/AA based programs. This website will help you answer some of your questions.
We use THE BEST OF ALL THE ALTERNATIVES. We don’t just offer one of the best (like SMART Recovery OR Rational Recovery OR the Life Process Program). Instead, the Clinic tries hard to offer ALL OF THE BEST. Most of the AA Alternative programs are 'missing something'. Combining the best ALTERNATIVES gives every person more complete information and a better chance to make make for successful change.
Click on the the 'Bibliography' tab for some great references to wonderful reading material. A book that summarizes many of the the AA Alternative approaches is '7 Tools to Defeat Addiction'' by Dr. Stanton Peele.
