Dr. Dave Janzen was born into a family system with generations of addiction. Years later, as an ordained Presbyterian Minister, he discovered that the most troubled and troublesome persons he encountered in ministry were those whose families had also been affected by addiction. When he moved into counseling after 20 years of parish ministry, his undergraduate studies in psychobiology and behavioral psychology, along with post-graduate studies in marriage & family therapy evolved into a practice focused on helping addicted individuals and their families overcome the challenges of addiction. Dr. Janzen practices as an Interventionist and Recovery Coach in the Atlanta, Georgia area. View his website:
