Biography

Christopher Kennedy Lawford, Ph.D., navigates between Washington DC and Los Angeles as an actor, author, and advocate. He has worked extensively in politics, government, and the non-profit sector as well as spending twenty years in the film and television business as an actor, lawyer, executive, and producer. Before this, he battled a drug and alcohol addiction for much of his young life. In recovery for more than 25 years, he now dedicates most of his time and energy in the hopes of making a difference in this global public health crisis.

Dr. Lawford works with a number of partners in private industry, the non-profit sector, state and federal governments, and patient advocacy groups. His main objective is to effect change and raise global awareness about the pressing public health issues of addiction recovery and Hepatitis C, including the United Nations, the White House Office on Drug Control Policy, the Canadian Center on Substance Abuse, and the World Health Organization. In 2011, he was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Office on Drugs & Crime to promote activities supporting drug treatment, care, and recovery.

In March 2009, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Dr. Lawford to the California Public Health Advisory Committee. The Public Health Advisory Committee provides advice and recommendations to California Director of Public Health on programs and policies to improve the health and safety of Californians and helps identify strategies to improve public health program effectiveness and identify emerging public health issues. Additionally, he acts as the Public Advocacy Consultant for Caron Treatment Centers and as a National Spokesperson for a Hepatitis C public awareness campaign.

As the author of The New York Times bestseller, Symptoms of Withdrawal: A Memoir of Snapshots and Redemption, Dr. Lawford illuminates his extraordinary life and the tragedies he has faced--offering a cohesive message of survival, hope, and inspiration. He released his second New York Times bestseller, Moments of Clarity, in January 2009, a book of spiritual epiphanies enabling those who experienced them to move from addiction to recovery. In May of 2009, Harper Collins released his third book, Healing Hepatitis C. He is currently at work on his 4th book under the working title--Everything You Need To Know About Healing Bad Habits: From 50 of the World's Top Experts on Addiction, Recovery, and Co-dependency.

Dr. Christopher Lawford holds a Bachelor of Arts from Tufts University, a Juris Doctor from Boston College Law School, and a Masters Certification in Clinical Psychology from Harvard Medical School where he gained an academic appointment as a Lecturer in Psychiatry.
