About The Author
After completing a court mandated drug and alcohol treatment program in 1989, Mark Scheeren realized the “treatment” he received left him even more depressed and anxious than when he began his “treatment.” A chance meeting with researcher Jerry Brown started a collaborative research effort spanning over three decades that lead to the development of the first residential non-12 step method, the Freedom Model Retreats with Mark serving as its first graduate and now as Research Fellow and Chairman. Together Jerry, Mark and their research team continuously test and refine the methods. Today that evolution has produced the revolutionary text, The Freedom Model for Addictions, Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap as well as the residential model entitled The Freedom Model System.
