Jump aboard for the ride of your life
Hi, I'm Bob Francis, LICDC-S. Welcome to my web site. For the past 28 years I have been involved with alcoholics/addicts in Cleveland. I got sober where it all started and began working in Recovery centers soon after that date. I began doing DVD's for the industry several years ago. Some of them are available on this site.
Under FREE STUFF and MORE FREE STUFF I post some of the documents I have used, over the years, in Group therapy. Please copy and use them, as you want. On the INFORMATION Page, you will find information important to our Business. I depend on your input to grow, in service to others, and I am asking you to
PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT ON THE CONTACT ME PAGE!
I need and value your INPUT!
My newest DVD's are produced and are available NOW.
The titles are:
TRIGGERS- a positive part of recovery
ANGER MANAGEMENT- The same as Driver's Education
GETTING READY FOR MY NEXT DVD:
It will be about the "GROWTH STEPS", that's steps 10, 11, and 12. Should be out this year...
all available at:
The Elevator to Recovery is
OUT OF ORDER!
PLEASE TAKE THE STEPS!
I produce and sell DVD's for the Recovery and Community Corrections Industries. I also am open to educate and present my ideas of old time 12-step AA recovery. I am currently fininshing up my first book, on recovery principles, "Ol' Drunk Bob", and looking for Publishers. Let me know if you can help!
I have been working on an old idea of mine. Seeing how Treatment is so costly and Insurance Company's are trying to not provide service to the Alcoholic/Addict in dire need for help, I am putting together this idea of providing cost effective solutions. Most of the Court's in Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga Counties have always sent the client to get an Assessment and a Referral to , at least, an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program. I have provided these services for a number of years and see that the cost is way out of reach. It can cost the individual from $1000 to $3000, of which they don't have! The other problem I see, is that Agency focus is now toward treating Mental/Emotional Illness and thinking Addiction will get treated this way. I totally Disagree with this, and so does "The Big Book". They want "Evidenced Based" solutions. I'll take 77 years of "Evidenced Based" solutions! Let us treat ADDICTION and let the Doctor treat the rest. I am putting together a plan that is IOP based and a focus on only the Addiction. Getting the client Assessed and Treated. With the focus on getting them hooked up with folks who are on "The Path". Over the past 28 years, I have kept records that show this methodolgy has a better than 70% success rate for the client's I have served. Keeping the cost under $500 for an assessment and 18 sessions of IOP, is what I am shooting for. I'm thinking I can do this. I have talked to local Probation Officers, Judges, Attorneys, and they think it is a great idea, and are willing to support and refer to this Level of Care.I am hoping you will think about this and leave me your thoughts on my "CONTACT US" page. I am depending on your help! Whether it be Positive or Negative feedback, your help is needed.
