Dr. Frank is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross where he earned All American Honors in Football. Making his dream a reality, Dr Frank was a professional athlete from 1983-1987. He began his career as a free agent with the Green Bay Packers; he then went on to play with the New Jersey Generals of The United States Football League, his playing days ended in 1987 with the Detroit Lions.

Dr. Frank earned a master’s degree in counseling from Montclair State University, Montclair, NJ and his doctorate in philosophy and psychology, specializing in addictive disorders from Southern California for Professional Studies, Santa Clara, CA.  Dr. Frank is considered a pioneer in the addiction field with his functional integrated therapeutic model, SOARFIT.

“ I often tell participants, become comfortable with being uncomfortable. If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you. I can recollect being consumed by the idea of becoming a professional athlete. Physically training, becoming bigger, faster, stronger was a passion and it gave me a purpose. However, I also had underlying anxiety and issues with insecurity. When I was no longer able to compete, the voices of failure and fears, were quieted by alcohol, actually a habit ingrained from a much earlier time in my life.”

Experiencing a fall from grace, addicted, loss of pride, family and self-respect, I turned my attention to a search for meaning. Re-connecting to my spirit, a flame began to increase. An internal connection increased, I began to live a program of recovery and experience life with a different perspective.  I embraced the darkness and the light which resides in all of us. I began a journey in the exploration of the power of the mind. I became intrigued by the neurobiology of addiction and recovery. Why are so many consumed? What motivates someone to recover?

By integrating meditation, mental imagery, nutrition and exercise in treating addictive and mental health disorders Dr. Frank realized it affected the mind and the body in a positive  way. Dr. Frank created SOARFIT in attempt to manipulate the brain and body in order to optimize performance, outside the realm of traditional 12 step practice. “I now feel healthier and I want to share my techniques with all who are interested in recovery. “I don’t want to be just healthy or average for that matter, I want to perform at my peak cognitively and physically I want to crush life”. I’ve tried and researched alternative therapies, cryotherapy (purposely making yourself cold), neurofeedback (training yourself to regulate your brain waves), near-infrared saunas (they supposedly help you escape stress from electromagnetic transmissions), and virtual float tanks (which are meant to induce a meditative state through sensory deprivation), among others. I am constantly improving the SOARFIT model to create an environment, establishing new norms, eliminating negative addictive thought and increasing one’s awareness.

“Several studies in neurobiology over the last decade reveal our body, mind and spirit suffer when we are in emotional pain. SOARFIT makes what is dysfunctional, functional. Our emotional life is physical and it imprints itself in our bodies. The ultimate goal, transform the client’s thought process, directing the individual inward increasing faith and strength of the body’s natural healing process.” Take ownership of your future, recovery allows you to have freedom to be happy with a sense of purpose.
