October 4, 2021




Dr. Donna Marks talks with me about her book Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One Cause, One Cure. This is episode 416 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Dr. Donna Marks has developed a breakthrough treatment approach to addiction, one that offers long-term relief and help to America’s addicted – whether one suffers from drug, alcohol, eating, gambling, shopping, smoking, or sex addiction.

She is an educator and licensed psychotherapist and addictions counselor who has worked with over 6,000 patients over the past three decades. A speaker, author, and educator, Dr. Marks often discusses her own struggle with addiction brought her to a worldwide search for healing. She was once a single mom, high school dropout who overcame her challenges and addictions.

She became licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in 1987. In 1989, she earned a Doctorate Degree in Adult Education, then became Certified in Addictions, Gestalt Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Hypnosis, and Sex Therapy. 

Dr. Marks developed an award-winning addiction training program at Palm Beach Community College that has since grown into a four-year college degree program, for which she was given An Award of appreciation by the school. She has also received the Peter Fairclough Award for Service in the Field of Recovery and a Mobilization for Action through Planning & Partnerships Community Service Award by the Governor’s Council for Community Health Partnerships.

Dr. Marks is the author of the multi award-winning, Exit the Maze: One Addiction, One Cause, One Cure and  Learn, Grow, Forgive: A Path to Spiritual Success. Dr. Marks created an effective online course for people who want to be cured of addiction. For 30 years, she has taught A Course in Miracles.

So much to learn.
