First there is the unique BALM Program (Be a Loving Mirror) which is designed to help family members move through their developmental levels toward lasting recovery.

Finally, you will get the business development training you will need to turn your practice into a viable business. Altogether, this 162+ hour program will provide you with the powerful tools and skills required to prepare you to be a Professional Certified Coach (PCC).
