AVRTeleConference is five 1-hour sessions of direct instruction on Addictive Voice Recognition Technique® (AVRT®) conducted by Jack Trimpey using the FaceTime utility of Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iMac, iPod, iTouch, MacBook) and using the similar Duo app on the Android platform. The purpose of AVRTeleConference is to achieve secure, permanent abstinence (total recovery) within the time allotted. AVRTeleConference is strong action against addiction, often at a time of crisis and emotional turmoil. If you can imagine the relief you would feel to know you are fully recovered, that is evidence in itself that success is within reach. By taking strong, decisive action now, you may become fully confident before a week has passed that your addiction is ended, over, finished, kaput, defeated.

If the idea of permanent abstinence gives you a sinking feeling, that means your Beast is already showing its fear of you.
Direct instruction cuts through the fog of addiction, allowing you to immediately seize control and enjoy the freedom of self-determination. 
Significant others have no burden of change, but attend in order to (1) ask hard-ball questions of Mr. Trimpey and the addicted family member, to (2) witness what is said and done, so there will be no misunderstandings later on about terms such as "never," "use," and "zero-tolerance," and (3) to develop effective means of protecting oneself and the rest of the family against any further "relapses."

The sessions are scheduled two in the first week, one in each of the next two weeks, and a summary, closeout session several months down the line, when a clear before/after comparison of mood, perceptions, and personal functioning is possible. Because AVRTeleConference is far more cost-effective than traveling by air for intensive instruction in a group setting, we see people physically in person only when there are psychiatric or legal justifications. FaceTime provides the very best quality of realtime experience with true "telepresence" that is the equal of being physically in the same room. In effect, Jack Trimpey makes house calls, which a significant other may also attend. 

AVRTeleConference is
 a major event in your family’s history, setting  the standard of zero-tolerance as a condition of family life and restoration of trust. AVRTeleConference is an uplifting experience with little, if any, self-disclosure, discussion of your past, or searching for your personal hangups and shortcomings. There is not enough time for that, and even if there were, it wouldn't benefit you. Because there is no long waiting list for AVRTeleConference, daytime slots for your first session are usually available within a few days.

Who is Jack Trimpey?

I'm the author of Addictive Voice Recognition Technique® (AVRT®). In 1986, my wife, Lois, and I became the co-founders of Rational Recovery. Since then, we have pioneered great changes in the addictions field. Our famous name, Rational Recovery®, is often cited in textbooks, community service directories, and general references on addiction and recovery.

I'm also a clinical social worker with decades of experience in community psychiatry, addiction treatment services, crisis intervention and mental health counseling services. 
 I can easily say, "I’ve seen it all, and nothing works to defeat addiction." That said, there is nothing to stop any addict from quitting addiction, for now and forever. You probably know someone who quit drinking/using years ago, and with good reason. It's a private matter, nobody's business, and he/she is among the true winners of the struggle against addict-identity. The addiction and addict-identity vanish, and you are left with the task of living down your bad image among those you care about. The decision, "I will never drink/use again," provides more benefit to addicted people and their families than all of the professional services money can buy. That is what you wil get on day one of AVRTeleconference

To an addict,
 lifetime abstinence appears impossible, unthinkable. Through the polarizing lens of AVRT, that miraculous outcome is an immediate possibility, easily achieved. I will guide you across the finish line, Session 1.

I look forward to meeting you and a 
significant other very soon. Then, we will take an urgent shortcut into life after recovery!
