Welcome to SelfHelpWorks!

Whether you want to lose weight permanently, quit smoking in 5 days, or gain back control of your life then SelfHelpWorks is your solution!

Who is SelfHelpWorks? We’re a company that has been helping America live a healthier tomorrow since 1979. We’ve helped more people lose weight, quit smoking, control alcohol and stress than any other single organization in the country. While other programs and products generally provide short-term, quick-fix solutions, SelfHelpWorks treats the root emotional causes of addictive behavior. Each program uses a method called structural behavioral cognitive training --which allows participants the chance to learn how to make rational choices rather than emotional decisions about food, cigarettes, stress, and alcohol.

Through each program you will receive interactive coaching that actually simulates a live, one-on-one session with Lou Ryan himself, specifically tailored for your success.

Stop existing, and start living today!
