Tuesday, October 8: If you are a Dr. Phil fan, then you know Debbie Knauss from her various appearances on his show. If she’s new to you, here’s some info: Debbie is a registered nurse who has specialized in dealing with the “disease of addiction and the importance of family involvement in the addict’s recovery.” Over the years and after working in various facilities providing inpatient, outpatient and extended-care treatment, she has also had first-hand experience the effects of the disease. Her own son’s struggle with drug and alcohol abuse catapulted her from being a normal mom to co-founder/president/CEO of VIP Recovery in Dallas.
Debbie will be the keynote speaker at the The Power of Prevention Breakfast benefiting the Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse at Royal Oak Country Club.
Co-chairing the event will be Janine Evans and Lorri Lancashire with Jan Showers as honorary chair.
