(WFLX) - Just the term 'divorce' is enough to make many hearts skip a beat knowing the pain and despair it may bring.

But these days, there seems to be an explosion in products and services to help make this massive life change a little easier on everyone involved.

Take for example Sonja Fisher. She felt like a failure going through a divorce. "It can be something that's life stopping," she said.

So she signed up for Divorce Detox, a program that promises to teach you how to feel better, not bitter. Divorce Detox is one of many new programs, products and services designed to take the pain out of a split.

These days, you can find divorce coaches and divorce planners, a divorce toolkit and even a 'divorce in a box'.

"Finally people really realize they need these resources," said Francine Baras, Start Over Smart co-founder

Mother-daughter team Baras and Nicole Feuer created a conference focusing on divorce after Nicole's marriage ended. "I think companies are starting to recognize that there are millions of people getting divorced and it's a niche that needs to be served," said Feuer.

Their Start Over Smart event is a two-day conference and expo where divorcees can learn about all of the help that is now available. "We provide all the services people would need that they don't even think about; career advice, dating advice, advice on your children," said Feuer.

While there's no clear cut statistic on the divorce business itself, it's clear it's in the billions and growing bigger by the day.

Therapists and psychological organizations tell us it's great to have new options for people to find help, but with between 850,000 to 950,000 divorces each year, they stress each scenario in Splitsville can be very different.

One universal bond: the recommendation to see a licensed professional. "It helps them lay the foundation for a new life, get closure from their past and transition through this process, healing the emotions," said Allison Pescosolido, of Divorce Detox.

Sonja says she's living proof. "There's not the drama that used to be there all the time," she said.

We spoke with a representative from the family institute at Northwestern University about the trend. He explained all the additional avenues for help are a great option for those going through divorce, but he stresses each divorce can be different, and each individual may need tailor-made help and guidance, which they can find with a licensed therapist.
