If you find the 12 step model disempowering, confusing, abusive, or you are feeling gaslit and/or you are still struggling with your substance use habits, then this course will be massively life changing!


So what is the The 12 Step Deprogramming Course?

First, it is important to know that Freedom Model co-creators Mark Scheeren and Michelle Dunbar both spent more than 20 years each, in Alcoholics Anonymous (throughout the 80’s and 90’s). As young people, they were introduced to 12 step meetings by their families, so it was second nature to become a part of AA when their own substance use problems escalated later in life. They spent nearly half of that 2 decade span researching if AA actually helped people to solve their addictions. Here’s what you need to know - it doesn’t! They then began the long and arduous process of deprogramming from the damaging belief system they learned in AA. But know this, it doesn’t have to take years for you to deprogram from the AA belief system that is keeping you stuck! This 12 Step Deprogramming Course can show you how to do it in a couple hours so you can move on with your life!

Just Imagine -

  - No need for 12 step meetings or degrading labels. 

   - No false disease or disorder diagnosis. 

   - No ignorant or patronizing sponsors telling you how to live your life. 

   - No more endless recovery lifestyles. 

   - No more feeling deprived and depressed.  

   - No need for rehabs or sober living.  

   - Instead, you will see exactly what the 12 Step program is all about, and why leaving it and deprogramming will actually help you to solve your substance use problem for good!
