What is "The Answer Model"?

The Answer Model, a neuro-alignment paradigm shift in mental health, was created and developed by Todd Ritchey & Dr. John Montgomery.

The Answer Model – is based on cutting-edge research in neuroscience, psychology, and anthropology. 

All humans develop unconscious biochemical addictions to our own pain and emotional distress.

The Answer Model is a clear pathway out of dysfunction.

“The Answer Model is utterly compelling in that it combines hardcore scientific research with a treatment model that does not refute, but supersedes all models in current practice… What John and Todd have uncovered is groundbreaking at all levels.”

About the Answer Model & it’s roots:

Todd Ritchey, an addiction interventionist, alongside Dr. John Montgomery, a neuroscientist from Caltech, saw the need for a new approach in addiction therapy. Together, they developed the Answer Model, challenging the ineffective traditional disease models. Todd’s innovation quickly demonstrated success in patients, yet it needed a scientific endorsement for broader medical credibility.

Enter Dr. Montgomery. Initially a skeptic, he rigorously tested the model against contemporary neuroscience findings. To his surprise, after a decade-plus of research, he not only validated the model scientifically but also recognized its revolutionary impact across various dysfunctions.

Today, under the Transformd banner, Todd and his team are passionately committed to spreading these psychoeducational principles. Their mission is clear and far-reaching: to educate and inspire everyone from therapists to medical professionals, down to the general public.

Being a part of the psychedelic renaissance, Transformd takes pride in sharing enlightening tools that deepen individuals’ understanding of their brain functions, uncover the roots of their dysfunctions, and guide them on a path of self-discovery and truth. Our driving passion is to teach this model and witness the transformative power it holds for those who embrace its principles.

Our Unique Approach:

Based on our extensive research and years of practical work with clients, we’ve uncovered a profound truth: humans can develop an addiction to certain pain feelings experienced early in life. These feelings, often linked to survival threats, trigger our body’s natural defense mechanisms, including the release of endogenous painkillers like beta endorphins.

Here’s the intriguing part: as part of our survival instinct, we unconsciously cling to these pain feelings. Why? Because at a primal level, they’re associated with life-saving actions or decisions. This deep-rooted attachment leads us to subconsciously seek similar experiences throughout our lives, continually triggering the release of endorphins.

Consider this scenario: a child experiences guilt and shame, feelings that might have prevented them from actions that could threaten their sense of belonging. While these feelings helped maintain crucial familial bonds – equating to survival in the brain – the child becomes unconsciously attached to these emotions. As adults, they might unknowingly seek situations that evoke guilt and shame, perpetuating a cycle fueled by the rush of endorphins.

Our model goes beyond recognizing this pattern. It provides a roadmap to break free from this cycle, enabling a life filled with genuine joy, pleasure, and healthy relationships.
At Transformd, we’re deeply committed to guiding you through the transformative power of the Answer Model. It’s a journey about learning, a process of rewiring your brain towards a life that’s not just fulfilling, but rich with purpose.

We show you how to navigate this exciting path to freedom. With the Answer Model you will unravel and reshape deep-seated patterns into experiences that enhance and enrich your life.

Discover the model that lets you transform.
