About the BALM®
We are a full service online educational program focused on helping ALL families be their loved one’s BEST chance at recovery from Substance Use Disorders and other Use Disorders. This we do through providing International Coach Federation (ICF) Accredited Family Recovery Life Coach Training, Family Recovery Facilitator Certification, and Family Recovery Education and Coaching.
What makes us special is the Be A Loving Mirror® Method of Family Recovery which is a loving path based on love, connection, boundaries, and leverage which we provide through a full year online Family Recovery Educational program that picks up where traditional family recovery ends in terms of its approach, its accessibility, and its length. This is a relevant program for families whether their loved one is active in or in recovery from their use disorder.
Our focus on Information, Transformation and Support gives families a comprehensive educational experience that best prepares them to get THEIR lives back while also empowering them to help their loved one attain and sustain recovery.
At BALM®, our leaders, faculty, and staff are all dedicated to the fulfillment of our mission to help all families blaze the trail to recovery in their homes.
