More than 20 million people suffer from some type of addiction. Only a fraction of them get the treatment they need.
Understanding the devastating effects of addiction on the brain can help you understand why "choice" alone is simply inadequate.
Dr. Ellis helps assess a loved one’s needs, finds treatment options, leads the intervention, and helps the addict into treatment.
Prior to becoming an interventionist, Dr. Ellis served as pastor of six churches over his 34 year career. He holds a doctorate in Greek, a Masters in Biblical studies, and a B.A. in Psychology. He's authored many commentaries, articles, and biblical studies, and his blog, GraceWaves, has a wide audience.
For more than three decades Dr. Ellis has stepped into the chaos of people's lives to try and bring them direction and peace. Through addiction he entered his own chaos, then began his recovery when someone said "we need to get you well." He believes in the vital importance of intervention as the beginning of recovery. His passion is to help addicts, alcoholics, and their families get well.
