Chairman and Co-creator of The Freedom Model
Mark Scheeren started researching addiction and created the first non-12 step model of addiction-help in the world in 1989. Over the following 3 decades he fine-tuned the model with co-developers Michelle Dunbar and Steven Slate at their residential retreat in upstate New York and through Freedom Model Private Instruction. Together, they also published The Freedom Model for Addictions in 2017, so people could learn the model worldwide.
Their information and program was revolutionary and remains so today. In the process of this evolution and development, Mr. Scheeren searched all of North America for the best alcohol and drug detox. He chose Gallus Medical Detox Centers from the dozens of facilities he toured and interviewed. By partnering with Gallus Medical Detox Centers, patients are provided top medical care coupled with a successful transition home. This has proven to be an incredibly successful combination.
