Here's what people are saying about RehabWorks 

"Just celebrated 18 months of sobriety!

"We discovered Jim and RehabWorks after our son had already been through one inpatient rehab. Even though we thought treatment had gone well, we had no idea how unprepared we really were. We are incredibly grateful for what we learned through RehabWorks and Jim's guidance when we began the next phase of his treatment. Thanks to this program, our son just celebrated 18 months of sobriety."

Jill and Mike, parents of a 19-year old male


"Forever grateful"

The material from RehabWorks confirmed for us that our daughter did in fact have a problem, and then Jim guided us on how to address her issues. He held our hand as we admitted her to a residential treatment facility, and even communicated with her therapist to ensure everyone was on the same page.  As we transitioned to Outpatient Treatment, Jim was invaluable in assisting us to find the best program. We will forever be grateful for the guidance, knowledge, and experience Jim provided our entire family.

Lee and Casey, parents of a 17-year-old female


"Completely changed my understanding of how treatment is supposed to work"

"I started RehabWorks with Jim when my husband was admitted to rehab for the third time in the past five years. It made all the difference in the world. Before, I never knew what his recovery plan was supposed to look like, so I enabled him and he would never follow through with his recovery. The things I learned in RehabWorks completely changed my understanding of how treatment is supposed to work and has made a huge difference in how things are going this time. He really appreciates that I'm more involved.

Maria, wife of 42-year-old male treatment client


"Probably would have caved if it hadn't been for what I'd been learning through RehabWorks"

Three weeks into my son's treatment he said he was homesick and wanted to come home. He also said that since he just uses marijuana, it's not a problem. Thanks to everything I had already learned through RehabWorks, I knew he was in no way ready to come home, and I was able to set my boundaries with confidence and not support his request to leave treatment befiore he was ready. But I probably would have caved if it hadn't been for what I'd been learning through RehabWorks!"

Linda, mother of a 19-year old male

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this program only for parents of treatment clients?

While the original Rehab Works! book was written specifically for parents, the online program was revised so that it could be used for both adolescent and adult treatment clients. It is for parents of teens, parents of adult children, spouses of treatment clients, or even adult children of parents being treated for a substance use issue.


Does my loved one have to be in treatment for me to use this program?

No. While the RehabWorks Family Success Package is designed to coach families while their loved one is going through treatment, many begin using the program while taking the first stps towards addressing a potential problem with a loved one. Many families also discover the program after their loved one has completed primary treatment but are still in need of support for continuing care.


How long does the program last?

The Family Success Package includes four initial coaching sessions; the time frame for these is based on the specific needs of the case. Typically, these are conducted 1-2 times per week. More sessions may be scheduled as needed.

The online course includes three modules; each module takes 1-1.5 hours to complete. Most families typically complete the entire course in 1-3 weeks. The coaching sessions are used to review material, process assignments, and develop support strategies.

Finally, the Family Success Package includes the Parent Support Group, which members may continue to attend as long as they desire.
