Debbie and Brandon Knauss
Brandon Knauss is a person in longterm recovery and Debbie Knauss, his mom, helped provide support throughout each step of his treatment. Before starting VIP Recovery, Debbie and Brandon Knauss regularly appeared on the Dr. Phil show to help Brandon seek treatment and recover. Without proper intervention, Debbie and Brandon know that they would not be here today to guide others through the complex intervention, treatment, and recovery process. Through a highly specialized intervention method, Brandon and Debbie travel all across America guiding other families toward the shining light of recovery. As skilled interventionists, Brandon can provide a compassionate perspective while maintaining a firm stance, and Debbie is extremely knowledgeable about how behaviors impact the family, close friends, and co-workers.
