The Program

The Shulman Center program has been continually evolving and fine-tuning from its earliest successful results. Typically, 90% of our clients enroll in and successfully complete the basic program structure:

  • 10 one hour-long sessions with Mr. Shulman in person or by phone within a 90 day period
  • For one of these 10 sessions, it is highly recommended that a family member or friend attend a "joint session"
  • A 30-day follow-up session with Mr. Shulman in person or by phone
  • Reading and working from one or more of Mr. Shulman's books or books by other recommended therapists
  • Participation in either a local and/or online support group (Mr. Shulman created and has moderated a confidential online group for recovering theft addicts since 2000).

Note: Participation in the Shulman Center program includes any and all letters for court and/or employment issues at no extra charge
