Drug Addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer. It doesn’t care what you look like, where you live or how much money you make. Jennifer can help.

Jennifer has been in recovery from her addictions since 2004, has her degrees in Drug and Alcohol Counseling and in Human Services and is the author of the best-selling book on Amazon: “STOP IT!

You can complete the 12 steps at your own pace and on your own schedule.

You’ll be invited to join our CLOSED and PRIVATE Addiction Recovery Facebook page, where you’ll meet others recovering from their various addictions. There you will find inspiration and support to help you through your journey to recovery.


Being a drug addict is a self-diagnosed disease (“disease” - meaning you are not at-ease with yourself). No one else can diagnose you. Please feel free to answer the questions below to assess if you feel you have a problem with Drug Addiction. If you find yourself answering “Yes” to some of these questions, this program may be exactly what you’ve been looking for:

Have you used drugs other than those required for medical reasons?
• Have you used prescription drugs at higher doses than recommended or needed to obtain a new prescription before the due date?
• Do you use more than one drug at a time?
• Can you get through the week without using drugs?
• Are you always able to stop using drugs when you want to?
• Have you had "blackouts" or "flashbacks" as a result of drug use?
• Do you ever feel bad or guilty about your drug use?
• Does your partner, friends or parents ever complain about your involvement with drugs?
• Has drug use created problems between you and your partner, children or your parents?
• Have you lost friends because of your use of drugs?
• Have you neglected your family because of your use of drugs?
• Have you been in trouble at work because of drug use?
• Have you lost a job because of drug use?
• Have you gotten into fights when under the influence of drugs?
• Have you engaged in illegal activities in order to obtain drugs?
• Have you been arrested for possession of illegal drugs?
• Have you ever experienced withdrawal symptoms (felt sick) when you stopped taking drugs?
• Have you had medical problems as a result of your drug use (e.g. memory loss, hepatitis, convulsions, bleeding, etc.)?
• Have you gone to anyone for help for a drug problem?


How did you do on the questions above? Remember, drug addiction has little to do with what kind of drugs you take, how long you have been taking them, or even exactly how much you take.. But it has a great deal to do with your uncontrollable need for drugs and the un-manageability in your life.

Most drug addicts can't just "use a little willpower" to stop using. The drug addict is frequently in the grip of a powerful craving for drugs, a need that can feel as strong as the need for food or water. While some people are able to recover without help, the majority of drug addicts need outside assistance to recover from their disease. This 12 step online program can help you stop using and reclaim your life.

And after working a successful program, these are The Twelve Promises from the book Alcoholics Anonymous (The book that Narcotics Anonymous originated from):

  • We are going to know a new freedom & a new happiness.
  • We will not regret the past, nor wish to shut the door on it.
  • We will comprehend the word Serenity &
  • We will know peace.
  • No matter how far down the scale we’ve gone, we’ll see how our experiences can benefit others.
  • That feeling of uselessness & self-pity will disappear.
  • We will lose interest in selfish things & gain interest in our fellows.
  • Self-seeking will slip away.
  • Our whole attitude & outlook on life will change.
  • Fear of people & economic insecurity will leave us.
  • We will intuitively know how to handle situations which use to baffle us.
  • We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
  • Are these extravagant promises? We think not.
  • They’re being fulfilled among us - sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.
  • They’ll always materialize if we work for them.

Remember: Drug dependency is an equal opportunity destroyer. It doesn’t care who you are, how much money you make, or the type of education you have. Its job is to destroy your life. Jennifer can help.

*Some may be of need of a detox center before getting off the drugs. Please consult your physician before going “Cold Turkey.”


“Through using the 12 step program Jennifer has laid out, I have virtually rid myself of the automatic judgmental and angry attitude I once had. I’m no longer a slave to automatic thinking and compulsive mental traps ingrained by decades of addiction.” -Peter B.

“I knew I was looking my own mortality squarely in the face (my parents both died in their fifties) but didn't know how to deal with it. Through working with Jennifer and the 12 step program, I know I’m now living the life my Higher Power intended.” -Callie R.

“After working the 12 step program with Jennifer, in the last 18 months I’ve landed my dream job and moved to a town closer to family and friends with more activities I enjoy than I can fit into my day.” -Alecia S.

“I never knew how much obsessing about food and eating controlled my life until it stopped controlling my life. Jennifer was able to help me see that food was the symptom, not the problem.” -Heidi P.

“Thank you so much Jennifer for helping me to change my life in more ways than I can count.” -Kelley E.

“I can now look at where I can improve different areas of my life and set about making changes to improve my lifestyle. The darkest moods I have are short lived, curtailed by use of using the 12 steps Jennifer showed me how to do.” -Darryl R.
