Viktor Frankl Addiction Recovery
Life Coaching Program
Starting May 22, 2023
Accredited by ICF for 30 credits & 30 CEU's for Therapists/Psychologists (NYSED & APA)*
Would you like to become an Addiction Recovery Life Coach helping others overcome their addictions?
Do you know a loved one or someone who struggles with Internet & Relationship, Alcohol, Drugs?
Do you want to change the lives of your family/community members using a Torah approach inspired by Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor and author of Man's Search for Meaning?

Spot the signs of drugs/alcohol/Internet and relationship addictions
Offer guidance in developing new behavior patterns
Create an effective plan of action
Reduce resistance to change
Direct that person to the right medical/group/therapeutic resources
Utilize the teachings of Rabbi Dr. Avraham Twerski, z”l
