Client Responses

Don't just take our word for it!
Here are a few actual letters, cards, and emails about Coach Chris’s program.
“As I take time and think back about these months that have passed, I really feel so grateful to you. I am not just saying this to say it, I really mean it. I don’t know that Mark and I would have made it through if it weren’t for you. You have such a gentle and understanding way about you and any time I was on the ledge you always made me feel better and hopeful. I appreciate your honesty, your demeanor, and your experiences. I am just so grateful that you worked with my family to bring all the recovery work together. You are fantastic at what you do, so thank you Coach!”
Kathleen & Family
“Coach Chris and his recovery coaching services are invaluable to my clients. He holds them accountable, is engaging, honest and reliable. His coaching practice and hands-on approach gives my clients the extra support they need to help them stay sober. I wish he could take on many more clients, I would fill his calendar!”
“We heard that angels exist but never were fortunate enough to meet one until we met you. Amy and I cannot express just how much it means to us for you to have done what did for our son in the short time you have been part of his life. Your compassion and understanding for people struggling with addiction is unsurpassed. We think you are so special and wish that the world was filled with many more like you. We thank you with deep appreciation for helping us during this difficult time."
Andrew & Amy
Client's Parents
“This has been awesome. When I first got out of treatment and was “on my own'' for the first time, my dad reached out to Coach Chris for help to make sure I stayed on track. He helped devise a comprehensive coaching plan that made it possible for me to return to college at UT, and now I am eligible to walk next May! Without his help, I don’t think I’d be here today. Thanks a lot Coach and best of luck!”
“Coach Chris has been an integral part of my recovery. He was referred to me by my counselor because I was struggling with some of the day to day challenges after a pretty bad relapse. Through his coaching program, the self-support it helped me build, and all the experienced guidance, I feel more confident in my sobriety.”
“I had the pleasure of working with Coach Chris as we collaborated to help a client of mine who has struggled with relapse for years. The Coaches professionalism and commitment to my client was outstanding. I will continue to collaborate with Coach Chris in his recovery coaching practice because what he does works!”
“Having Coach Chris in my life is a gift. I am grateful for the opportunity to reap the benefits of his wisdom and experience. Having him as my coach in addition to regular therapy and my 12 step program has given me the extra support I need on my new journey into sobriety.”
"I drank and smoked weed my entire freshman year and when I realized that I was about to throw everything away, I decided to stop partying, but I got really scared when I found that I couldn't stop. I went to a 28 day treatment program but then I drank the first weekend out. My parents looked everywhere for help and found Coach Chris. He worked with me and helped me learn to speak my truth and how to ask for help. I learned to be honest with myself and to capitalize on my strengths with the help of my coach. I'm about to start the fall semester as a junior and haven't been high or drunk in a year and a half! I'm so very grateful."
"Surprise! It seems like a long time Coach. It's my 1-year birthday (since 4.7.15), of being clean & sober! This has been a year of ups and downs. However, through it all I have stayed on track, clean and sober and continued on the journey you started me on. I am grateful for my life today and grateful for the people in my network. I am truly grateful to you for being there every step of the way those first 9-months. I am also grateful for an introduction to meditation exercises. Your office was a safe place to come and get fed the perfect dose of recovery and support I needed all those days back then! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
“Hey Coach, it’s Bobby C., I know you left [treatment center] last year, but someone gave me your contact info and I really just wanted to tell you how much you helped me when I was in treatment. The sessions I had with you were right on target for what I needed in my recovery. I can only speak for myself, but I know a lot of other guys that you counseled at [treatment center] expressed the same thing. I like the “Coach Chris” name for you because what you did for all of us was more coaching than counseling for sure. I know it worked for me and I wanted to say thanks. I’m coming up on 4 years clean in a couple of months. You’re probably surprised to hear from me, but I’m alive and well and living the dream for real! You were right about recovery capital by the way…”
"This was so worth it. I had many reservations about a 3 or 6-month commitment, the cost involved, and opening up to a stranger, but at our first meeting you made me feel safe and comfortable. Being in your program was the most beneficial and healing experience ever in my life, you actually helped me build a fun and productive life in sobriety! I'm so grateful that you offered me therapies that taught me how body, mind and spirit are the three keys to my recovery. I recommend your program to anyone with issues to work on!”
"Much gratitude to you for what you have developed for our clients. I've been looking for professional services with your focus for a long time. Finally! Someone who connects an addiction recovery course with the clients personal circumstances and provides coaching interventions that they follow of their own accord to help them stay sober and repair family issues. You have my thanks and referrals of all my therapy clients with substance abuse issues. I will definitely spread the news about The Recovery Journey.”

“We can’t begin to express enough, the gratitude we have for what you helped [our son] to accomplish. At first we were actually afraid that you wouldn’t take him as a client because of his multiple failed treatments. When you told us that guidance and coaching was the answer for him, not more treatment, we were so encouraged! We spent so much money on the “best treatments” in the country but had almost lost hope when one evening our friends from alanon gave us your contact info. Our son talks about your program all the time and he’s so happy about his sobriety! I don’t know how to write this to the world, I would if I could, so feel free to use this note wherever you can because you obviously have a gift and know how to share it. Thank you Coach, we love you.”
Anna & Herbert
“I was sober through AA for 8 years when I had my relapse, I knew what AA had taught me, but I just couldn’t get it together again once I had the shame of failure on my back. Your coaching program gave me a whole new view about sobriety and how to love myself, maybe for the first time really. You know I will keep reaching out when I hit my milestones just like I have been, I’m grateful for you Coach, and I want you to know it!”
“To Coach Chris; I’m coming up on my 2 year anniversary of being clean and sober and I wanted to drop a line to say how much I appreciate you. You know I always jumped in line to sign up for your group at the recovery court counseling center. Your group always filled up first and I believed you had what I needed more than the other counselors. I’ll always remember you and the things you taught me. Here’s some funny shit for you; sometimes I get a little sideways and slip back into some old thinking and when I do and my wife is around, she’ll say something like ‘have you forgotten again what Coach Chris helped you discover about yourself?’. She is my rock and reminds me when I need to shine up my recovery work. Our marriage and my relationship with my kids are great today because you helped me find recovery. Thank you from way down deep man.”
"The program was laid out for me in what seemed like perfect order and helped me see exactly what I needed to change from a man on the brink of losing everything including my wife and kids, to a man of purpose and hope. I just celebrated 3 years clean and sober! My wife and teenage daughters have their Dad back and my bosses at work tell me how much they appreciate me nearly every day! Coach, you gave me what two treatment centers did not, just what your program talks about - real recovery. Thank you again and I’m happy to keep telling others about what you helped me accomplish."
"I work with clients and their families who have been devastated because of substance-use disorder. After researching Coach Chris and his program, I decided to refer an especially troubled client to the Addiction Freedom Course. He committed to the program and gave me updates each week. The change in him has been nothing short of a blessing and his whole family is healing as he continues to maintain his sobriety. I’ve referred a dozen more to the program since then. Thanks for creating a complete plan for these clients."
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
“I loved the program and the Coach’s approach to changing my thinking about myself. I learned so many things about addiction that helped me shift my thoughts and eventually my desires. I’m working at the same job I’ve had now for 10 months and I have a new girlfriend that likes who I am and she trusts me! You’ll be hearing from me again Coach, keep doing what you do - thanks!”

Addiction Freedom Course

This 21 day self-paced experience answers all the questions about your substance-use, debunks some of the theories that "clinical treatment" is the only answer, and lays out each and every step and simple solution for successful sobriety, emotional wellness, and relationship renewal.


Here are your most frequently asked questions and our answers:

The Recovery Journey coaching program, it’s resources, tools and provisions sections, and it’s 21 Day Addiction Freedom Course was developed for adult men and women who struggle with substance-use, or substance-abuse symptoms.

The short answer is a resounding YES! Alcohol (known in the chemical table of elements as etoh) is the world’s most abused substance by far. The Recovery Journey program was developed based on years of successful outcomes in helping people with histories of alcohol-use problems find relief and release from the grip of this devastating chemical addiction.

The short answer is a resounding YES! The elements of the Recovery Journey Addiction Freedom Course specifically target proven solutions to freedom from dependance on schedule 2 – 5 drugs like opioids, oxycodone, amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, various narcotics,and other addictive and dangerous chemicals that cause health, life, and relationship problems.

The answer again is YES. This recovery coaching program is designed to provide a successful outcome (sustainable recovery) to anyone suffering through the terrible consequences of chemical dependence regardless of the specific substance being used. Clients are experiencing recovery every day from addiction to mood-altering substances like cocaine, cannabinoids (marijuana-THC), methamphetamine, and various hallucinogens.

The home-based digital course is a complete and highly effective coaching approach to the elimination of drinking and drug use. Clients are presented first with real answers to their questions about themselves and their substance-use based on their own self-discovered personal circumstances, past and present. The course is structured in a series of progressive coaching interventions on a “journey” through 21 “waypoints” of discovery, education, self-examination, and even guided meditation. The course content guides the client through a self-paced and life-changing experience like no other.

This course is not another “treatment”, nor is it a type of clinical counseling program. Over many years of experience with clients and the enormous benefit of the coach’s own personal recovery experience, the evidence has become clear; people seeking real and sustainable recovery (sobriety) from mood-altering substances can succeed only when they themselves, are provided with clear, real-world solutions that make sense and match their own life, culture, family, and vocational circumstances. Successful recovery is an individual and intimate process that we believe requires a person-centered coaching program.

The Recovery Journey Addiction Freedom Course is structured within 21 distinctive modules.

Each module is comprised of enlightening self-discovery coaching worksheets, addiction education critical to understanding the real issues clients face in recovery, training videos from the coach and other highly regarded professionals in the field, plus powerful stories of struggle and success from celebrities and well-known professional athletes.

Although the course is self-paced, with 24/7 client access, it is designed for completion in 21 successive days. Each module and the coursework within it will require an average of  approximately 1.5 hours per day.

The success stories from former clients about the effectiveness of our Recovery Journey coaching course is unparalleled. Although people always have the option of picking up the drink or drug again, the promise of a client’s ability to successfully sustain long term recovery is virtually 100% when they follow our simple and straightforward “safety-first” guidelines.

From the very “base camp” of the journey, this course provides powerful and actionable new coping skills and alternative responses to “triggers” and “cravings”. When people follow these simple guidelines and use our tools, resources, and provisions, they attain and sustain their recovery, period!

The developer of the Recovery Journey Addiction Freedom Course is acutely aware of the damage and upheaval in families and love relationships caused by substance-use disorders.

The course includes an entire module designed to foster healing and renewal within these potentially broken relations. There is coaching, worksheets, relationship exercises, and helpful instruction for others in the unhappy orbit of the substance user.

The coach also makes recommendations for helpful and healing books on the subject of family recovery and codependency. See these and more at the Resource Center on our website.

Once you have paid the course fee, you will be actively enrolled for a full 90 days. Each of the worksheets and coaching materials are downloadable to you during your 90 day course access.

The coach will explain the importance of downloading and printing these materials every day and staying committed to completion in 21 days. The tools, provisions, and resources page and its content will be at your disposal always.

Our articles written on the blog are also available to support you and your loved-one’s ongoing wellness and success.

Sorry, NO, there are no refunds for our programs. After many years of working face-to-face with recovery coaching clients the coach learned that requiring clients to pay up-front for the full program with a no refund policy helped clients in their commitment to move ahead with changing their lives.

The illness of addiction is a brain-based disease and what we call “addict brain” can side track the “recovery brain” temporarily. We are on a mission to carry this opportunity for a full and comprehensive recovery to everyone we can. Refunds are not conducive to the mission!

The Recovery Journey program and it’s Addiction Freedom course are not meant to be clinical counseling or addiction treatment. The Recovery Journey is not offered as clinical programming. We believe the approach offered here to effect long-term sobriety and recovery is uniquely successful because the course is developed as a method of step by step coaching. This course is offered as a “paid out of pocket coaching and
education” download program. It is non-clinical coaching and does not include, nor does
it require face-to-face sessions.
