Bio

Bobby Newman is a certified counselor and interventionist who has been performing successful interventions for over 17 years. He also has educated thousands of people on the danger of drugs and alcohol addiction.

These programs are important in fighting an on-going battle against drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.

Without these education and prevention programs, the local health system and drug rehabilitation sector would be treating twice as many patients.
