Phase Three (Second & Third 4 Weeks)

Our extended program is ideal for people who have lost or are about to lose more than they can afford to lose (job, marriage, health) because of negative habits. It is especially helpful for recovering addicts, alcoholics, and codependents who are on the verge of relapse.

In addition to all of the material included in the "Growing Beyond Codependence", Phases 1 & 2 programs, this important extension to the program is based on individual needs and covers:

  • Learning to model healthy relationship skills to the next generation.
