(Edmonds, WA) January 27, 2014 – Dr. Gregg Jantz, author of 28 books, including his best-seller Battles Men Face, says celebrities and high-profile public individuals who repeatedly receive notoriety for their illegal or bad behavior spotlight themselves as desperately needing intervention and treatment, frequently for drug and alcohol addiction.

“When bad behavior is broadcast repeatedly on talk shows and news programs, providing massive notoriety for an individual, it can result in the breakdown of their personal constitution and compass, blurring their recognition of acceptable social norms. Without intervention and treatment, the individual’s mental and physical health can be in danger,” Dr. Jantz says.

Dr. Jantz is a go-to media source for a range of behavioral-based afflictions and alcohol and drug addictions. He is available for immediate media events and appearances on this subject.

Dr. Jantz has appeared on CNN, FOX, ABC and CBS, and has been interviewed for the New York Post, the Associated Press, Family Circle, and Women’s Day and writes blogs for The Huffington Post and Psychology Today. See Dr. Jantz’s biography at www.drgregoryjantz.com.
