Let’s Change the Numbers

February 16, 2024

We just completed our very first beta Stop the Chaos Study Group, and I’ve been deep into studying the results to see what we can do to make the next one even better (more details on the next one in a minute!).

The goal of the study group was to provide live support to those who purchased our Stop the Chaos video training, which gives you immediate access to six hours of video content, plus a PDF workbook.

What we found was on average only about 30% of the people who purchase Stop the Chaos actually complete the training. The other 60% tend to watch 1-3 videos and stop (if they watch any of the videos at all).

Here’s where it gets interesting…

Did you know that of the 30 million people struggling with substance use disorder (SUD), only about 11% access treatment? And of that 11%, around 40% don’t complete treatment.

I have to say that again.

40% of people do not complete treatment.

So what I discovered is a similar percentage of families leave treatment early, just like the addict leaves treatment early.

Why do you think that is?

My hope was last month’s study group would change those numbers a bit. Because the other data we’ve found is that when families are in treatment while their loved ones are in treatment, 100% of their loved ones complete their treatment programs, and a good number of them go on to aftercare and long-term recovery.

With this first round of the study group, we had 13 people register, and 6 attended the live sessions. That’s about a 46% completion rate.

Here’s what participants who attended had to say:

“I loved the study group, I miss it already.”

“I’m a changed person.”

“It helped me be accountable to actually watch the trainings.”

“It felt so good to be with others—some ahead of me and some just starting out. I felt so not alone.”

“I learned real tools, I’m using them and they really work!!”

“What you taught me to say to my loved one was a game changer.”

“I learn by talking things out, so that helped me a lot.”

“I am ready to fire myself as the ‘case manager’ for my family!”

We’re running the Study Group again, and my goal is to have even more people show up.

It starts March 7, 2024 and will run for one month (4 live sessions total). The group is still in beta, meaning we’re actively seeking feedback on what worked and what didn’t so we can improve it going forward. It also means the study group is currently free to participate in for anyone who registers for Stop the Chaos.

There are three main changes we’ve made to this round:
1. My book will be available to you. This means you’ll have access to the Stop the Chaos video trainings, the book (which covers all the material included in Stop the Chaos, but with even greater detail), and the live sessions over zoom.
2. Improved delivery structure. There will still be time in the sessions for personal shares, but with a bit more structure to make sure we all get the most out of it possible.
3. An MVP guest. One of Tipping Point’s current MVP students will be attending all four live sessions with me to offer valuable insights from her own experience with the material.

How do you sign up?

If you’d like to join us for this next beta round, your first step is to register for Stop the Chaos through this link and make sure to check the box indicating you want to participate in the study group. You’ll receive immediate access to the Stop the Chaos videos, which I encourage you to start watching right away. We’ll reach out with the full study group details leading up to March 7.

When you join, you’ll also be entered for a chance to win a 1-hour strategy session with me for personalized support.

Have you already taken Stop the Chaos?

If you’ve bought Stop the Chaos before and haven’t continued on to one of our other programs, you are welcome to join us in the study group! Email our team at to let us know you’d like to participate, and we’ll make sure you get the details.

The results speak for themselves…

Here’s what others have said about this training:

“I have been fighting myself all week on why I don’t want to get up in the morning and face another day. I am usually much more positive. I need my power back! I am detoxing from feeling powerless/helpless.”

“What’s landing for me is that I can stop being a case manager – I want to detox from that job! I realized I am a case manager for all my kids and my ex-husband (still!).”

“I’m learning new and better ways to support and respond to my family members impacted by addiction.”

“I’m detoxing from offering and agreeing to financing the insanity of addiction.

“I am so glad a friend recommended me here. So much better than what I had found so far.”

“I’m going to detox from taking on the responsibility of their well-being. Yikes.”

How would your life change if you had targeted support for four weeks? If you had tools and resources to put into action? Renewed strength from others in the group sharing this journey with you?

It’s all about strengthening ourselves on the inside in order to change our action on the outside, so we can get better results.

I’m here for you, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes. Because I know your loved one can recover.

Register for Stop the Chaos here, and let’s get started together.
