The Definitive Solution To ALL Addictions

Do you want an addiction – a lifelong diagnosis –or do you want to see yourself as having a habit you can solve completely? The answer to that question tells you if The Freedom Model is the answer for you.

The Freedom Model approach with its revolutionary message and extensive research guides you on an empowering path to total FREEDOM without the limitations of treatment and/or recovery.

By dispelling the common addiction myths, you will:


Move Past Addiction Easily

Alcohol and Drugs do not have power over you


Realize Addiction IS NOT a Disease

ADDICTIONS are habits and you have the power to change them


Understand that You Do Not Need Treatment

Treatment Doesn’t Work and has worse long term outcomes than doing nothing at all*

Shake the Very Foundations of Current Addiction Beliefs

Break Free!

Deconstruct the myths and lies behind addiction treatment and the commonly held misinformation surrounding addiction.

The Freedom Model contains all the information needed to reject the limitations of the recovery lifestyle and its “white knuckle” feelings of deprivation, fear and anxiety.

The Freedom Model is the answer millions like you have been waiting for:


No More Support Meetings!

Completely Non-12 Step

The Freedom Model will clear away the difficulty in seeing how efficiently you are able to change your habits – and do so without feeling deprived, anxious, or fearful.
