Viktor Frankl Addiction Recovery
Life Coaching Program
Starting March 1, 2022
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?
While a therapist might diagnose addictive behavior and prescribe treatment, this is not the coach’s focus. Instead, a coach will offer someone the tools and guidance needed to follow the path they’ve already chosen. This will include learning how to:
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

Dr. Judith Grisel, former addict and author of “Never Enough: The Neuroscience and Experience of Addiction
Justin Phillips, mother of son who OD’d from opioids and founder of overdoselifeline.org
Dr. Lee Radosh, MD, one of the leading addiction medicine experts (Caron Treatment Centers)
Dr. Julia Loytsker, Phd., clinical supervisor and staff psychologist (Caron Treatment Centers)
