Starting July 5, 2021


Accredited by ICF and 30 CEUs for Therapists*

​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?

With an explosion of addictions facing so many families  you can learn how to make a difference. The Viktor Frankl Addiction Recovery Life Coaching Program is designed to give you the personal power to change the lives of countless individuals.

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 can include:

  • Offer guidance in developing new behavior patterns

  • Help create an effective  plan of action

  • Create accountability and support

  • Assist in harm reduction for addictive behaviors

  • Directing that person to the right medical/therapeutic resources 




​The course will offer live Internet-based Video instruction with Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch, LMFT, for 15 weeks (schedule adjusted for holidays). Texts, Powerpoints, video presentations, live Q & A and role playing sessions will be a part of the training sessions.  ​
