David Essel, M.S.


David Essel,M.S., Private Addiction Recovery Coach (20 years of practice), All Faiths Minister and Hay House author, has developed a 30 day recovery program that helps to create a total mind, body, spirit based recovery system for each individual based on their specific needs and circumstances. A deep understanding of all facets of the addiction process, emotional recovery and support systems, spiritual practices, nutritional supplementation, exercise and even financial management are all included to ensure the ultimate success for each individual.

David was successfully helping others recover before his own recovery began in 1996, and continues to this very day. And in his own words, will joyously continue to be a part of his daily routine for the rest of his life. He uses the word "joyously", as he has seen the impossible happen. Where once he could not have imagined a day without alcohol or drug use, he now enthusiastically approaches each day with passion and wonder and helps others to do the same.
