Danny Jackson, CHT, M.NLPPresident & Founder
Danny Jackson, CHT, M.NLP opened Act Now Wellness Center in 2007 to help individuals with substance use disorder find permanent recovery. Danny had become disillusioned by the recidivism rates of traditional therapy. For a counselor striving to help people, the revolving door feel to the existing programs available for people trying to beat addiction were verging on hopeless. He decided to focus on what was going wrong and find a better solution for his clients.

Danny began reviewing an exhaustive study through SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) that included inpatient, outpatient, individual psychotherapy, and support programs data. Among many things, these studies showed that a person would go through substance abuse programs an average of seven times before being able to maintain their sobriety.

He began looking into how hypnosis and hypnotherapy could be applied to resolve the source of the emotional issues which were causing people to use rather than the other way around. Today, Orlando Hypnosis Clinic™’s program that includes only eight sessions for substance abuse boasts a 94.6% success rate 13 years later!

Danny Jackson is an innovative, experienced addictions counselor and hypnotherapist who has helped numerous people overcome the troubles of their lives using hypnosis and guided thought. He has focused his career on changing lives.
