Lodging will be paid for by Couples Academy. All sessions are held in the suite area of the hotel room.
Once you secure a date, you will be provided with all of the necessary paperwork to get started. Once complete, we will schedule a 90-minute Pre-Intensive video session. The virtual meeting will provide an opportunity for both you, your partner and the coach to discuss specific relationship issues and set goals and objectives for the 3-day Intensive.
After the Intensive, you will receive 14-days of complimentary Crisis Coaching. Once you return home you may need help properly implementing the information you received. The two-week adjustment period allows you to contact your coach via phone, text, email and video on an ‘as-needed’ basis. You and your partner have the ability to ask any question and deal with any issue. Once the two weeks have concluded, it is frequently necessary for couples to continue their work with a coach/counselor on an ongoing basis in order to consolidate the gains they have made during the Couples Academy Private Marriage Intensive weekend. You will receive an aftercare follow-up session. Most couples continue their recovery process by enrolling in our one-year Recovery program.
