Next Wise Choice was developed right out of the trenches. Frustrated with endless cycling from one program to another, we set out to create materials that will offer the last program a participant needs. The amazing discovery was how practical it is for everyday use by everyday people!

Client driven, this curriculum has been proven effective in multiple settings. Together with the assessments, this program offers three core needs that all programs must offer: an emphasis on growing support systems, assessing 25 life domains and providing real ways to practice skills for mastery.

Comprehensive Assessments: How do you spell SUCCESS? Every service provider is asked this question. Those who fund our programs want to know that you are implementing effective strategies. With the Next Wise Choice assessments, concrete, measurable progress is able to be tracked and reported in 25 life domains!
