David Luddy is an addiction interventionist and certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher. In 2013, David created Revised Perception, a recovery advocacy, consulting, and coaching company. His coaching methods are strength based, and incorporate positive psychology, and motivational interviewing. He consults with treatment centers specializing in the development of relapse prevention programs. His advocacy work includes increasing awareness of recovery via social media and community workshops. His approach embodies three core principals: recovery is possible and you are worth it; and you have a purpose hidden in your strengths. Within two years his advocacy work generated 200,000 likes, 20,000 followers, and 13,000 comments. Revised Perception had become a lighthouse of hope in the recovery community. Revised Perception was a platform for people from all over the world to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with David realizes this is not just a job to him, it is his purpose in life. He has seen the darkest corners of addiction from both sides. He is grateful to be in recovery and recently celebrated 15 years of sobriety. As David did more community outreach work, the demand for him to do interventions grew. His vision was to change the industry model on intervention. His review of the latest research on interventions suggests a multidisciplinary approach is most effective interventions. With this knowledge, he reached out to Dr. Long and they created the first multidisciplinary model of addiction intervention.
