STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

What is the Freedom Model’s Coaching Method?

While some people are auto-didactic (meaning they can learn and internalize the addiction solution through reading our book, The Freedom Model for Addictions, Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap) and others can learn the solution effectively through watching our pre-recorded video tutorials, (through the Freedom Model Online Program or The Solution To Addiction Workshop) most people learn most effectively through dialogue with another person – Freedom Model Coaching. 

But what exactly is Freedom Model Coaching?

The reason coaching is a preferred method for solving substance use problems centers on the back and forth dialogue that provides a logical path out of the substance use habit trap we create for ourselves. But know this, not all conversations in the coaching disciplines are created equally. Freedom Model Coaching is the most successful coaching method for substance use problems because it has 3 distinct proprietary elements that makes these coaching sessions powerful, logical, understandable and most importantly, effective.

The FM Certified Coach

All FM Coaching is completely non-judgemental. We will not judge your behaviors, choices, relationships, lifestyle, past actions or habits. We value an individual’s personal autonomy and free will. It is not our job to judge, and we know that amplifying guilt, shame or regret can only hamper the learning process. With this in mind, we do not coerce, manipulate or increase fear, anxiety or shame to drive our students’ behavior-change as so many “coaching” disciplines do.

The Teaching Technique

All FM Sessions are based on the Socratic Method. Meaning, we will ask a lot of questions as a means to problem-solve issues. As Mark Scheeren, Freedom Model’s Co-Founder says when working the first few sessions with a student, “We will need to build your puzzle. Try to remember, you’ve lived with yourself, well, since your beginning – I’m here just learning about you. So I’ll have to ask a lot of questions to build the puzzle. And then I’ll ask more questions that will facilitate self-discovery. This is known as the Socratic Method, and it works.” In a Socratic Method session the student and teacher build a comfortable dialogue that allows for the student to learn by his/her own cognitive processes, not by the teacher leading, coercing or manipulating. 

The Information/Curriculum

By providing the researched facts about actual, objective drug effects and also debunking the mass of addiction and recovery lore and misinformation through the 470 page Freedom Model text/curriculum, all Freedom Model Coaching provides the student necessary facts and information to devalue the drug experience. This then makes the desire for heavy use less appealing. In short, providing the facts helps devalue one’s preference for heavy use, making the process of moving on after a substance use problem is solved, that much more productive, easy and fulfilling. 

Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE)

When we place all three coaching components together, it builds a discipline we call Cognitive Behavioral Education. To understand CBE, we must briefly explain its forebearer, CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a means of comparison. CBT as a therapy has become all the rage over the last fifteen years – it’s become a buzzword that many flout to bolster their professional therapy resumes and round out a description of their therapeutic practices. Its creation and popularity as a psychological therapy is a direct result of the therapy industry’s appropriate backlash to the many cases of abuse in other more commonly used conventional therapies available to the masses over the last century. While relatively new on the scene, CBT’s results as a solid performer to help people transform their lives is well known in therapeutic circles. But like so many things that have a good beginning, when watered down with other less effective or even abusive styles of psychotherapy, or when manipulated for insurance third-party reimbursements, even a therapy as good as CBT begins to morph back into the more control-centered models it was originally created to replace. This is where CBE comes in.

In 1989 when we began the first coaching method for a substance use problem, we looked at the various mental health therapies as a model to emulate. After much research and development, we ended up rejecting all of them in favor of an educational model. We found education to be far more effective and non-judgemental, and the research at the time demonstrated real promise there. In light of our discoveries at the time, the first coaching model we developed was called The Educational Initiative. 

This coaching model soon went through a number of name and programmatic improvements and changes over the 20 years that followed as our research staff and projects grew and matured. In the midst of all this, in the early aughts we’d learned about CBT’s effectiveness as a therapeutic model, and brought CBT’s ideals together with our educational approach to create the Cognitive Behavioral Education discipline. This has since been the macro-moniker for our coaching method. Since that coining, CBE as a coaching discipline has stood the test of time as the most effective method in the world for coaching people with substance use issues. 

Simply put, CBE is cognitive in that we discuss changing and adapting one’s thoughts and mind, which then changes behaviors, which then changes a life. All of this is facilitated through data, facts, research, and a teacher who educates; a Freedom Model Coach. Hence, Cognitive Behavioral Education and Freedom Model Coaching
