Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 20 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago.

Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada, Addicted.org and Drugrehab.ca, which reach and help millions of people each year. He is the founder of DRS, the organization hosting those two websites. An expert author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute. Marcel has also received a certificate from Harvard for completing a course entitled The Opioid Crisis in America and a certificate from The University of Adelaide for completing a course entitled AddictionX: Managing Addiction: A Framework for Successful Treatment. He is a member of NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals and a member of International Society of Substance Use Prevention and Treatment Professionals (ISSUP).
