What members say

You are not helpless

You need a scientifically-backed approach

In the past, parents may have been told they’re helpless to change their child’s behavior, choices, or motivation around using drugs and alcohol, but today’s science proves that isn’t true*. We include The Invitation To Change (ITC) Approach in our communities to give you a proven way to motivate and move your child to a better place.
