The 2nd Annual Lifestyle Intervention Conference Brings Celebrities, Wellness Leaders and a Nationwide Intervention to Las Vegas' Bellagio in October 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 29, 2012) - Forterus Health Care, Inc. founder and personal transformation, behavioral health expert, Michael Cartwright announced today that the second annual Lifestyle Intervention Conference has officially opened online registration for 2012 and the response is staggering. Industry leaders now recognize the Lifestyle Intervention Conference as the most anticipated, respected and important gathering of wellness industry professionals for 2012.

The 2011 Lifestyle Intervention Conference redefined the way wellness industry professionals approach and discuss process addictions, and the 2012 conference is taking things to the next level. 2012's Lifestyle Intervention Conference is an outright intervention on America's seemingly insatiable appetite for more. Whether it's food, sex, gambling or smoking, America is in need of an intervention and Michael Cartwright has assembled the best team of experts in the world to lead the charge against America's obsession with overconsumption.

Along with several of the industry's most respected innovators and personalities, Michael Cartwright will be joined by some of the world's leading wellness experts like CRC Health Group's leading behavior modification expert, weight control pioneer and founder of Structure House, Dr. Gerard Musante. Also on-hand will be Robert Weiss (LCSW, CSAT-S), Director of Sexual Disorders Services for Elements Behavioral Health and Founding Director of The Sexual Recovery Institute; Tennie McCarty (LCDC, ADC III, CEDC, CAS), founder, and CEO of Shades of Hope, one of the world's most renowned all-addiction treatment centers, specializing in the intensive treatment of eating disorders; James T. Moorhead, Publisher of Renew Magazine and; Joe Nadglowski, president of the Obesity Action Coalition and founder of Change Institute; and Co-Host of the event Brad Lamm. Mr. Lamm is also a respected author, educator, and regular on The Dr. Oz Show.

Michael Cartwright and Brad Lamm joined forces in 2011 to develop a new frontier for health, wellness and awareness. In less than a year, the Lifestyle Intervention Conference has become the premier event for the world's top health, wellness and addiction leaders. For 2012, Mr. Cartwright's company Forterus Health Care (parent company of FitRx, The Green House and A Better Tomorrow, a top addiction treatment provider) has once again gathered the best minds in the world and the Lifestyle Intervention Conference is poised to shift consciousness to yet another level. Created with the intention of building a network of resources within the community of providers who serve those struggling with obesity, food addiction and now including a focus on process addictions, The Lifestyle Intervention Conference continues to be the most critical, industry-changing event to impact the health, fitness and wellness communities in decades.

Conference Co-Host and Forterus Health Care founder Michael Cartwright said, "Process addictions are running rampant across the United States. Providers are contending with the most extreme addiction levels to date as mainstream America is literally being taken over by food, pornography, gambling, sex, video games and smoking. No longer is it only those struggling with drugs and alcohol who find themselves in need of an intervention or drastic treatment options; that is an unacceptable development that we intend to change." Mr. Cartwright added, "From policy reform and insurance hurdles to unified industry messaging, the Lifestyle Intervention Conference participants will institute change and shape the future of wellness."

The 2012 Lifestyle Intervention Conference unfolds at Las Vegas' Bellagio from October 1st-3rd and will offer extensive continuing education courses for Dietitians, Social Workers, Trainers, Psychologists and more. For more information visit or call 888.231.0911.
