Hello my name is Dr. Anthony Lightfoot and a few individuals would express that to see me walking and talking is a complete miracle of the master. For from birth I have had complications living be it physically, financially, emotionally or spiritually. However, all praises be to Him who created me. For the reason that, I believe that He not only allowed, controlled and organized my tests, trials and tribulations to come into my life (cf. James 1:1-12) but He also authorized, justified and reconciled me to come to Him on the date of December 13, 1994.

I know that it was Him because even He says in His Word that “no man can come to the Father unless He draws him or her to Him” (cf. John 6:44). This website that you are now viewing is a production tool of the actual treatment facility that the Lord set in my spirit on the above date. For prior to that for five years I lived in the insanity or demise of doing all kinds of illegal atrocities including smoking crack, phencyclidine (PCP), marijuana, and drinking untold amounts of alcohol. However, on the date of my arrest by the Holy Spirit, He cleaned me up and turned me around. I like to say that He set my feet on a solid ground. And that’s why I praise Him for what He has done, what He is doing and yes what I believe so affirmatively what He is going to do.

I mean I was in my insidious behavior. I went to prison twice, have been homeless and have had other events to happen in my life that I am not at all proud of. But I am here to tell you that “He looked beyond my faults and seen my need.” Don’t you dare get me started because I will praise Him all night thinking of the goodness of Jesus. For my soul cries out hallelujah, thank God for saving me.

In conclusion, you there reading my biography may be going through something right now and you just cannot see your way clear. Well call on Him who allowed you to go through it because when you do He will always make a way of escape (cf. I Corinthians 10:13). Yes, I dare you to try Him. I am a witness that He will prove Himself faithful, wise and strong.

Background

I received my calling to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and this was where I was totally delivered from the use of Alcohol, PCP, Cocaine and Cannabis.  Since 1994, I have served as a Minister of Evangelization in a Baptist and currently in a Foursquare organization but currently I have relocated to Los Angeles, Ca where I am an associate minister of New Prospect Baptist Church. I have been working on the vision that God has given to me to help those with any hurt, habit or hang-up.  This included working (517 Clinical hours) at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center in Anaheim, CA as a Substance Abuse Counselor intern. I have also published three inspirational books entitled “Not Just Recovered But Delivered I & II, and A Parallel of Words” to help those with their addiction.

Briefly describe your business:

In accordance with the requirements of the state of California, based upon my degree of Psychology and Business Administration/Marketing, we intend to offer a new approach to treatment that will affect Los Angeles (e.g. Divine Intervention Treatment Solutions).  Divine Intervention Treatment Solutions is a multidisciplinary behavioral health care practice that offers mental health and substance abuse services to the community of Los Angeles. Our focus is to provide cost-effective, quality treatment for any hurt, habit or hang-up(s). Our mission is to show the way to effective living through servant-hood.  We do this to create, promote, and maintain a positive customer relationship with our participants in Los Angeles investors, associates and staff, and our community. The market for behavioral health services is healthy, as will be shown by the growth the existing Center has experienced during the past two and a half years. California has recently passed a mental health parity bill that will become effective in month one. The bill requires insurance companies to develop benefits for biologically based behavioral health disorders similar to those provided for health disorders. This should help sustain the anticipated projected growth. Currently, the Outpatient Psychiatric Center is referring approximately four phone calls a day to other providers.
