Robb Kelly, PhD

Addiction Consultant

It’s Not a Drinking Problem; It’s a Thinking Problem

In this workshop, Dr. Kelly presents the latest research and treatment methods based on his experience in working with people with substance use disorders for the past twenty plus years. He puts forth his reasons why alcohol and drugs have little to do with substance use disorders. Anyone can stop using and drinking, but the struggle is how to stay sober.


About the Presenter: Robb Kelly, PhD is a world-renowned addiction consultant who believes in treating the problem of addiction, not the symptoms. He has worked for many years helping addicts and alcoholics RECOVER their lives against the disease of addiction. Dr. Kelly earned a PhD in Psychology from Oxford University and was the CEO of a thriving telecommunications company when the walls came crashing down on him due to alcoholism. He ended up homeless and broken on the streets of Manchester, England until he found the courage to save himself.
