Education and Training

Jeff Georgi spent over 35 years defining a comprehensive model of addictive disease through the biological, psychological, sociological and spiritual domains of this illness with a particular focus on the creation of The Spiritual Platform™. Most of his teaching and training focuses on helping health care professionals understand the disease of addiction to better support the people they teach or treat. Jeff helps those with whom he works address some of the misinformation that shrouds this illness to find and celebrate recovery.

As a sought after public speaker, national trainer and educator, he has been privileged to train thousands of educational and healthcare professionals in many different settings from schools, to hospitals, to treatment centers, as well as national and international conferences. Jeff brings a passion and depth of clinical experience that helps his trainings come alive – engaging participants on a cognitive and emotional level. Because of his ability to inspire and offer new content, his audiences request his return.

The following trainings sessions can be delivered separately, or as part of a series.

In response to COVID, Jeff Georgi is available to provide education and training virtually. Please contact us for more information!
