“Addiction is a family disease. The entire family gets sick when one family member is addicted. When the addict gets better, the family can begin to heal,” said Ladis, who graduated from the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work’s School of Social Work with a master of social work (MSW) in 2012 and his Ph.D. in social welfare in 2018. “About 50 percent of my patients are families experiencing an addiction crisis; either the father, mother or kid has a substance user problem and I am trying to help the family heal.”
Ladis knows first-hand what it means to be a parent afflicted with addiction. A husband and father of four, Ladis was a successful businessman and CPA when he realized that he was in crisis and needed to go into treatment. He has now been clean and sober for more than 13 years.
