Jack has been in practice for over 25 years as a therapist. He is currently the clinical director of Serenity Life Counseling. His experience ranges from having developed several in-patient addiction programs for drug &alcohol addiction, eating disorders, to sitting on Patrick Carnes advisory board for sexual addiction at a Southern California in-patient facility. Jack had been the director for a residential treatment center for drug and alcohol addiction back in the early 90ís. He is most noted though, for his work on religious abuse and addiction and is the author of the best selling ìToxic Faithî. However, if you were to talk to Jack, he would tell you his most exciting work is right now. He sits in an advisory board capacity to Dr. Daniel Amen, the worlds leading expert on Spect Scan Imaging (a nuclear medical approach to brain function). Jack is well suited in supervising the integration of this cutting edge technology into substance abuse.
