Why We Do - What We Do

Co-Founder, Dr. Frank Ricci contracted Cancer from second-hand smoke.  After he recovered from this potentially deadly disease, Frank dedicated his life to helping people eliminate chronic stress and stress-related issues like smoking, obesity, alcohol and the unintended consequences resulting from substance abuse. He co-founded The FREND Group Clinic and became a nationally respected clinician and speaker who is passionate about his work and compassionate toward his clients.

With over six thousand clinical and inspirational events under his belt internationally, Frank has become a national leader in behavior modification and a respected humanitarian helping people improve the quality of their life.

We know that when we help people reduce chronic stress (The Cause), stress-related issues (The Effect), like smoking, excess weight, pain, insomnia, alcohol and drug abuse can be dealt with more effectively.

We educate, motivate and give people faith and tools to achieve whatever they put their mind to so they and their loved ones can enjoy life at its fullest.
