Join Our Online Family Recovery Program

A place where families can learn and talk about the unique challenges of addiction and get support.


Are you a hero?

Have you run to the rescue?

Do you want to understand everything you can about addiction so you can save your loved one?

Have you tried numerous times to “fix” this?

Will you go to any length to help your loved one get well?


Calling all Heroes…

One thing’s for sure. If you’re here, more than likely, you’ve been acting as the hero in your family. You have been attempting to come to the rescue for your addicted loved one and you’re looking for more tools for your tool belt.

We want to recognize you and tell you that we’re glad you’re here. 

Its people like you, searching for answers, trying your best to help, that eventually do the most good in the fight against addiction.

The challenge is that unfortunately, there’s a fine line between helping and hurting when it comes to addiction….and that’s the line between Hero and Enabler.


Have you been an enabler?
  • Do you minimize and pretend it’s not that bad with your loved one?
  • Have you blamed their addiction on other things, places, or people?
  • Do you think the addiction is your fault?
  • Do you rescue out of guilty feelings?
  • Do you find yourself feeling victimized by your loved one?
  • Have you neglected yourself or other people to focus solely on your addicted loved one?
  • Have you rationalized their addiction?
  • Do you believe your loved one’s excuses?
  • Have you swept things under the rug?
  • Have you done just about anything to keep the peace?
  • Have you bailed them out of trouble? Paying legal fees? Hiring attorneys? Making excuses at work?
  • Do you pay your loved one’s expenses? (Rent, food, clothing?)
  • Have you taken your loved one in and attempted to “clean them up?”
  • Has your loved one gone to treatment and you took care of everything while they were gone?
  • Is your loved one addicted and you run the household alone?

Enabling is a trap that hurts your loved one’s chances of recovery and leaves you feeling...

  • Completely overwhelmed
  • Sad
  • Frustrated
  • Confused
  • Hopeless
  • Bitter
  • Resentful
  • Depressed
  • Numb
  • Anxious
  • Disgusted
  • Alone
  • Unappreciated
  • Used and Abused      


And the worst part is…it’s totally ineffective when it comes to helping your loved one get better.

You just want to know how to help….
That’s why we’ve created the Online Family Recovery Program.

The Online Family Recovery Program is an incredibly effective 4 module - go at your own pace - training program for families with addicted loved ones.

Here's what the program can do for you...

Addiction is a family disease, in that, it effects everyone in the family, not just the addict or alcoholic. Everyone feels the effects.

And addiction is like a thief. It steals your peace, your sanity and robs you of your trust. You’re left shaking your head, wondering what to do.

We created the Online Family Program after teaching our highly successful 3 day live workshop at Palm Partners Treatment Center in Delray Beach, Florida for the past five years. Although the benefits families have reported are varied, here are some common themes…
