For the past 30 years, John Lee has been an early pioneer in the field of recovery from alcohol addiction and drug abuse to codependency.
A number of Lee’s books deal with the subject of recovery, making him a sought after consultant who also trains counselors and therapists at renowned treatment centers.
Lee has given lectures and workshops at The Betty Ford Center, The Cleveland Clinic, South Pacific Private Hospital (Sydney, Australia), Guy’s Hospital (London, England), The Hanley Center and The Meadows, to name a few.
For over 25 years, Lee has been a regular keynote presenter at numerous treatment centers and clinics, including clinical conferences like The Summit for Clinical Excellence, U.S. Journal, Family Networker and Southwestern Arizona Conference on Addiction.
John’s work with men’s issues has positioned him as one of the leaders and early pioneers of the men’s movement. His Mentone, Alabama Men’s Conference (co-hosted with Robert Bly) ran for 16 years and drew participants from around the world.
In 1986 he founded and directed the Austin Men’s Center. Lee continues to speak about men’s issues all around the world.
