About The Founders
EDAS was first launched in 2007 by David Stanton, a senior psychotherapist known around the world for his work in substance abuse and addiction treatment. More recently, though, EDAS has become a collaboration between Relationship Living, TATVA and Creative Entourage, all of whom are known for providing the highest level of addiction treatment to clients globally.

Dylan is a clinical counsellor with over a decade of experience in counselling. He has worked all around the world as a specialist in his field; including with many well-known celebrities from the entertainment business. He's also been the 'on tour' recovery coach on frequent occasions for some highly successful individual music artists and bands.
Using a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model of therapy, and the processes he learned during his Medical Education in Addiction studies at Harvard University, Dylan strives to shine a light on the obstacles that are in the way of a person’s well-being and then teaches them how to overcome those challenges. By doing this, he doesn't just help them achieve short-term recover, but helps his clients gain life-long skills.
