John Mabry served as Director of Public Outreach and the host of “High Sobriety” podcast for Addiction Campuses. He was Social Chairman of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity at Baylor University. After graduation, he went on to earn a Master of Science in Counseling, became an inventor, an impassioned philanthropist, award-winning speaker and actor and stuntman with 14 years in the Screen Actors Guild. Within the first three months of moving to Hollywood, John's work attracted national media attention from People Magazine, USA Today, and “Access Hollywood”. Mabry has worked on the sets of “NCIS”, “ER”, “Superbad”, and countless other commercials and appearances.
As a senior Delt brother at Baylor, John was involved in a fatal car accident where he had his leg amputated and lost a close friend. He struggled with addiction, depression and PTSD for over a decade following the accident. Things became significantly worse, however, after he found his brother dead from a drug overdose in his Beverly Hills home. John went from parties at the Playboy mansion with actors and actresses such as Adam Sandler and Emma Stone to living in a trailer on the banks of a river in Tennessee after numerous rehab stints.
As a graduate of one of Addiction Campuses’ comprehensive treatment facilities, today, John spearheads their Drug-Free Workplace Training program and a national advocate for addiction and mental health recovery. Addiction Campuses is a nationwide company specializing in treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, as well as mental health issues, at multiple facilities across the country.
Amidst the largest drug epidemic in our nation's history, John passionately exposes audiences around the country to the REAL cause of addiction...and it's not what you think. Contrary to popular belief, the real cause of addiction is not a moral failing or someone just making bad decisions or even genetics. Very few people know that a root cause of many addictions, whether it's drugs and alcohol, pornography, food or shopping, is a DISCONNECTION. In today's world of being overly connected digitally, it's vital to recognize that human connection is still the most important connection there is.
