Brad Lamm, BR-I, CAI
Brad Lamm is an author, teacher and interventionist best known for helping people make life-enhancing change on The Dr. OZ Show and The Today Show.
Brad is Founder and CEO of Intervention Specialists, a crisis intervention agency. He has popularized his “Invitational Intervention” whereby a resistant loved one accepts an offer of assistance after being invited to their own intervention.
In 2008 Brad founded Change Institute to help inform and inspire better, lighter lives through weight loss and smoking cessation programs. His “Blueprint to Quit: Smoking” launched at more than 4300 Walmart locations in November 2011. Change Institute sponsors WORLD INTERVENTION DAY the third Thursday each December.
Brad’s work is based on the belief that we are constantly changing, and remarkably resilient. He believes family and friends are uniquely poise to offer support, accountability and structure from a beginning point of love and honesty – no matter how broken-down or discouraged they may feel.
In recovery from his own eating disorder, in addition to alcohol, meth and nicotine, Brad’s teaching style is first-person, no-nonsense and accessible. Previously a network affiliate news anchor, his TV work today helps viewers make lifestyle interventions in their own lives, and the lives of their loved ones.
He is a Creator & Producer of the eight-part docu-series “Addicted to Food” on OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network) and serves on the Board of Dr. Oz's HealthCorps. Brad speaks worldwide in association with The Rosewood Institute, highlighting intervention approaches to helping those suffering from eating disorders.
Brad lives in New York City with his family.
