Dr. Urschel is chief medical strategist at Enterhealth, LLC and one of the most influential and coveted speakers nationally on substance abuse and the latest opportunities that exist today to treat the disease of addiction.

He has guided Enterhealth to create the world’s finest residential treatment program for dealing with alcohol and drug addiction, recognized by industry publications, peers, national talk show hosts and even competitors. Dr. Urschel and the clinical team at Enterhealth are currently implementing the most advanced, science-based treatment protocols, incorporating pharmacotherapy into client-centered treatment plans that address the psychological, spiritual and relational aspects of addiction.
In a short period of time, Enterhealth, under Dr. Urschel’s leadership, has become the industry leader in how the treatment of addiction can move beyond traditional approaches that have struggled for the past 40 years to show improved outcomes. Dr. Urschel has incorporated his visionary approach to treating addiction into the New York Times best seller, Healing the Addicted Brain, a must read for individuals who want to better understand the chronic disease of addiction.
Through the advanced treatment protocols influenced by Dr. Urschel, Enterhealth offers a better way to recover from addiction at its residential treatment facility located just north of Dallas on a 43-acre campus of tree-studded, prairie grassland and through EnterhealthSupport.com, an online advanced recovery program, providing interactive modules that utilize the most advanced addiction behavior modification techniques to promote wellness and prevention as well as critical support across all phases of alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
