Speaking on Drug & Alcohol Addiction and Intervention

Dr. Ellis is available to speak at churches, civic organizations, or any venue where people want and need to learn about addiction, intervention, and recovery.

Ignorance about the disease of addiction and the rampant negative spiritual emotions surrounding the disease are the greatest obstacles to intervention and recovery. One of Dr. Ellis’s main objectives through Chrysalis Interventions is to remove the shame, blame, and guilt surrounding addiction.

At the core of all addictions is a spiritual void. Dr. Ellis’s extensive experience as a theologian and pastor enables him to bring unique insights into the spiritual component of addiction and recovery. He is widely sought to address conferences and conventions about this topic, and also has been consulted by treatment centers to improve their spirituality programs.
