Seeing Drug and Alcohol Addiction in a New Light | Ed Stevenson | TEDxCoeurdalene

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

We need to stop blaming addicts and start treating them. Right now, our treatment options are severely limited and often misguided. In this talk, Ed Stevenson passionately describes why we desperately need more treatment centers and better treatment options if we are to help our friends and family who struggle with addictions.

Ed was born in Leadville Colorado, which is referred to as the two-mile- high city sitting at 10,252 feet. He grew up in the Pacific Northwest where he attended college and majored in Business and Photography. Prior to graduation he was sought after by a large multi-national firm and then spent most of his career as an executive in the software consulting industry, working with Fortune 500 companies in Alaska, California and Seattle prior to settling in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho a few years ago. Once back in the Northwest, he and his wife co-founded Life Recovery Solutions, a behavior modification software company. His brother and nephew both died at an early age because of drugs and alcohol and because of this he spends his free time helping those struggling with addiction and other afflictions.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Three Approaches to Treating Addiction by Dr. Bob Weathers

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

Draws upon three contemporary approaches to therapy, each of which questions more traditional attitudes toward recovery. Includes such not uncontroversial suggestions as the counselor’s own entering into abstinence (if not from alcohol, then from some cherished behavior) and finding alternatives to such commonly employed labels as “alcoholic” or “addict” by implementing instead a “language of hope.”

A highly regarded educator and university administrator, as well as recovery coach, author, and public speaker, Dr. Bob Weathers holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, with an M.A. in religious studies. Over the course of his professional career, “Dr. Bob” has provided tens of thousands of hours of therapeutic counseling and recovery coaching to satisfied clients. He has also committed the past 35 years to teaching, training, and inspiring graduate-level mental health providers at several southern California universities, most recently at California Southern University.

Dr. Bob is currently academic effectiveness coordinator at CalSouthern, engaged full-time in ongoing initiatives for improving the educational experience of our learners, including his chairing the brand-new Student Advisory Council. Additionally, Dr. Bob has published numerous articles in a broad cross-section of respected professional reference books, journals, and edited volumes. To learn more about the speaker, visit:
