Addiction is a black hole that threatens to engulf our entire society. In the U.S. alone over 100 million people are addicted. Billions of dollars spent on prevention and treatment have yet to slow the rate of addiction-related death. The current models have failed. In Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One Cause, One Cure, Dr. Marks offers a new approach.
Dr. Donna Marks is a licensed psychotherapist and an addiction counselor in Palm Beach, Florida. She has worked with over 6,000 clients. Donna’s struggle with addiction brought her to a worldwide search for healing. Eventually, she learned that at the root of every addiction was a lack of self-love. This realization completely turned her life around. In 1989, as part of her award-winning doctoral degree, Donna developed a chemical dependency training program at Palm Beach Community College, which has grown into a four-year degree. She’s a certified Gestalt Therapist, Psychoanalyst, Hypnotist, and Sex Therapist. For 30 years, she has also taught A Course in Miracles.
Donna is the author of two books: Learn, Grow, Forgive: A Path to Spiritual Success and the multi-award-winning Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One Cause, One Cure.
Donna is a public speaker and has shared her methods with hundreds of thousands of listeners on podcasts and radio shows.
