Alchemist Recovery - Course 1

Course Overview

This course is Part 1 of a 10-Part Program that uses Traditional Chinese Medicine to successfully treat addictions.


In Part 1: Foundations, we establish clear communication between practitioner and client by defining common addiction terms and removing any preconceived notions. This provides a solid and necessary structure to build clear goals and achieve long-term success.


Like most of the 10 Parts of the Program, this course contains 5 Lessons with each of the Lessons consisting of:

1) An PDF Workbook

2) Three videos guiding you step-by-step through the Workbook

3) A guided Medicine Journey video

4) A guided Medicine Writes video

5) Q&A audio

6) Checklist: 3 Big Things (a summary for clients)

7) Alchemist’s Notebook for Practitioners


This Program is a holistic approach to comprehensively treat addictions. It does not offer “magic points” that somehow change thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors.


It does offer an in-depth emersion into:

1) Addressing every aspect of the whole person: mental, spiritual, emotional and physical

2) Exploring every Phase of the Cycle of Addiction, identifying its weak points and breaking it there once and for all

3) Repairing the damage done to every close relationship


Like every Part of the 10-Part Program, Part 1: Foundations offers a wealth of material that can be immediately implemented in your treatments or assigned as homework to keep clients engaged and quickly coming back.


  • Receive a clear definition, diagnosis and treatment plan for addiction

  • Acquire a TCM understanding of addiction that incorporates Western psychology & modern treatment

  • Create the foundation upon which to build long-term sobriety

  • Learn a language to collaborate with medical & mental health professionals

  • Integrate your unique skills into this non-denominational, plain-English approach.


  • 0 hrs - 1 hrs

    Lesson 1: Definitions: Alcoholic, Addict, Addicted Using the industry-standard definitions, we explore and clarify a client's perception of these terms to remove any barriers to treatment.

  • 1 hrs - 2 hrs

    Lesson 2: Definitions: Addiction Breaking down the Alchemist Recovery's definition of addiction, we go into detail as to how this directly relates to and draws from TCM.

  • 2 hrs - 3 hrs

    Lesson 3: Definitions: Medicine We identify your client’s needs through their exploration of Medicine. Do they want a mental, spiritual, emotional or physical approach?

  • 3 hrs - 4 hrs

    Lesson 5: Definitions: Success We build upon the Foundation we’ve established in the first four Lessons by clarifying immediate and long-term goals. We then explain how TCM can help them achieve these, as well as all ongoing Success.

  • 4 hrs - 5 hrs

    Lesson 4: Definitions: Medicine-Part 2 We explore the ways to deliver the kind of Medicine our client wants for their addiction. How does TCM provide specific mental, spiritual, emotional and physical answers that our clients can understand?
