About us

The Change Companies® has a mission of helping people change in positive ways. It starts with recognizing that change is not only possible, it’s inevitable.

A dynamic corporate culture doesn't just happen. It evolves. After 26 years of studying behavior change and assisting over 25 million individuals in improving their lives, a culture emerged at The Change Companies® that combines a sense of purpose with a sense of urgency. The Change Companies® is all about healthy, happy and productive employees. Each individual is encouraged to lead a balanced life: contributing to the good of their community, their family, their neighborhood and the corporate mission.

The path to change is seldom smooth or straight.

What's New

The ASAM Criteria: Treatment Criteria for Addictive, Substance-Related, and Co-Occurring Conditions

Completely redesigned and updated from its 2001 edition, The ASAM Criteria applies the newest science in the field of addiction medicine, is compliant with the DSM-5 and incorporates a user-friendly functionality.

New content includes emerging areas of focus, such as gambling and tobacco use disorders, as well as population-specific sections, including working with older adults, persons in safety-sensitive occupations and persons in criminal justice settings.

Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change

Based on Motivational Interviewing, 3rd Edition, this two-part DVD set provides descriptions and demonstrations of the new four-process method of Motivational Interviewing (MI), a person centered-clinical style for strengthening personal motivation and commitment to change among treatment participants. The DVDs are accompanied by downloadable resources containing a detailed menu with commentary, and annotated transcripts of all 14 interviews.

If you find yourself arguing for change and the client arguing against it - you are in the wrong chair.
