Empowered Recovery (ER) is an educational program of the
Church of Metaphysical Humanism, Inc. ER was founded in 2001 by Dr. Douglas Kelley
who experienced first hand the adversity and trauma of surviving an alcoholic
relationship. ER is unlike any other program for non-alcoholics available. It
focuses on resolving an alcoholic relationship rather than learning how
to live with one. It is based on the "Recovery Paragon," a powerful model for
success that consists of self-acceptance, self-responsibility, respect for free
will, and self-completeness. ER has helped thousands of people--including
children--to live better, more successful lives free of the suffering involved
in alcoholic relationships and environments. While ER focuses on alcoholic
relationships, the techniques are the same for other addictive relationships.
The techniques and philosophies taught in the ER program were developed by Dr.
Kelley in collaboration with his wife and partner, Tracy Kelley, who also
survived an alcoholic relationship.
Those who find themselves in any kind of toxic relationship will benefit from

Relationship Survival Guide, available in both print and eBook
