Standing Up To Addiction
Learn about our addiction relief program
Persistent, all-engrossing, over-riding compulsion involving chemical, financial, physical, or supernatural choices that are mindlessly pursued endangering personal welfare, normal activities, responsibilities and relationships. Remembrance of God and thankfulness to Him likely marginalized.
Ancient beverage based condition that, for some, becomes a go-to source of relief for problems, spoils physical and mental health, social status and relationships, and endangers third party’s life and property.
Production of a chronic condition susceptible to relapse, overwhelming and sometimes rewiring the mind, enhancing pleasure, causing hallucinations, and suppressing doubt, anxiety and fear.
Secretive behavior, imagining oneself smarter in beating the odds for a quick buck. Prone to lying, cheating, borrowing, stealing, papering over losses and thinking quitting is just a choice away.
Socially shameful, selfish, salacious, frenzied pursuit that puts normal sexual need in hyperdrive, characterized by an inability to care about personal health and sometimes others’ love, trust or right.

In our case, addiction treatment is a long, back and forth, complicated process involving client and counselor. It involves awareness of self, self-preservation and God, understanding the nature of family and society, being able to distinguish between right and wrong, fairness and injustice, responsibility and right, kindness and harshness, lying and honesty, sincerity and deceit, success and failure, disappointment and anger, happiness, fun and seriousness, sharing and discovery, as well as being able to let go of the past, be contrite, have hope, make amends, be able to recognize triggers, being able to form new habits, seeking out reinforcement, and finding support beyond professional presence among family and friends’ circle and in furthering education or career, etc.
Based on its historic roots, the ‘tptChoice’ program is a holistic, non-denominational, spiritual approach to addiction relief. In particular, in this on-line setup, it seeks to assist with dependencies related to Alcohol, Drug, Gambling and Sex. Owing to common/shared behavioral issues, certain elements of the individual approaches may/will overlap.
First of all, it is essentially a Self-Help program. However, in terms of assessment, knowledge and skill base, you will be provided with ample resources. These resources will always be written. Additionally, they may be be podcast or presented in AV format. You may be able to catch live sessions with opportunity to pose questions and get immediate or delayed response as appropriate.
There are two major mutually supporting elements herein: i. Spiritual and ii. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Particular modules therein are likely to be the following and more: Awareness Generation. Understanding Development. Problem Presence Acceptance. Skill Development, including Trigger Recognition and Avoidance. Routine Development for Day-to-Day Management. Follow-through.
As has been argued in other places on this website, this program is based on the 1,000 years plus success in erasing and subsequently preventing addiction across a wide swathes of humanity through cognitive understanding, surrendering to God’s plan, inching ahead little by little and being consistent about it, finding fellowship, establishing regular prayer and remembering and calling on God, being generous and forgiving, avoiding teasing, name calling, swearing and back biting, hiding people’s secrets, disassembling prior notions and attitudes, establishing justice and goodness, inviting others to uphold the Truth and to inculcate patience.
Membership is on a bi-monthly or step registration basis. Typically, each step of Our 12 Steps should be completed in two months. However, upon delay in completion, any step registration allows access to materials specific to that step for up to 730 days (subject to change). Upon successfully moving to a new step, the new material becomes available for 730 days, while access to materials of the previous step closes.
The average monthly expense is $150.00 only. So, for every step of 12 steps, requiring two (2) months to complete, the expense will be $300. Thus, for learning and skill building ideally spreading over 24 months, the grand total will be $3,600.00. This, excludes any applicable sales tax. The credit card processing fee (typically, a 3%) will be shared equally between the vendor and the client.
Payment is online using any acceptable credit card. The bi-monthly sums have to be paid lump sum in 12 equal instalments. Bimonthly, because each step should take about two months to master. Otherwise, access to each step will have an upper limit of 730 days (subject to change). Once the initial registration is done – for Step 1 - subsequent payments must be made only after the successful completion of the immediate previous step. Note, with enrollment into every new step will terminate access to previous step.
Communication with officers of tptChoice will be made primarily through the email contact provided. In case of emergency or non-responsiveness, direct phone call may be made. Mailing address provided will allow to write letters, also.
Whether born of fun, situation-bred, or acquaintance-led exposure, and regardless of the age of initiation, alcoholism is an uncontrolled, debilitating chronic disease of the mind. Having become the go-to source of relief and leisure, a financially expensive habit, alcohol casts a pall of gloom over normal life. It affects people variously. In fact, five impact categories have been identified. Regardless, in the worst case scenario [9.2% of alcoholics; 38 years average age;
Drug Addiction originates in habitually consuming hard drugs [i.e., illegal or controlled substance without prescription]. Entering the body variously [via drinking, smoking and inhaling, snorting, smelling, injecting, inserting, etc.] for the express intention of gaining pure pleasure and relaxation it produces, in the long run it reveals itself to be the Trojan horse it is. It is an induced/acquired mental (i.e., psychological and emotional) and physical disease.
Once viewed as an impulse control failure, GA has been reclassified as a mental disease. No matter what gambling has been to a person, how it has arrived and is pursued – as a past-time or a challenge, casually or regularly, self-discovered or inducted, as an early starter or a late-comer, openly or secretly, in solvency or in-debt, family-sensitive or irresponsible - girded by precarious financial condition, its steely grip produces tremendous psychological and emotional
According to current professional assessment, HSD/IDO/SA is not a disease but an impulse control disorder. It is taking a normal, adult inclination into directions, places, times, people, and processes that are far from normal. Sexual Addiction is very secretively pursued and is quite destructive to one’s social status, health, relationships, legal standing, spiritual and ethical moorings, and sometimes even to one’s income earning capacity and assets
