Dr. Tony Greco is CEO and Founder of Get Help, licensed clinical psychologist, and author, with over 20 years
of experience working with addiction and severe mental illness. Growing up in poverty, Dr. Greco’s lifelong
pursuit has been getting people into treatment. As a result of his parents’ addiction and mental illness, he
experienced homeless and addiction at 15 years old, and found recovery at 17 years old. Dr. Greco has been
on every side of this problem, and, through Get Help, now is on every side of the solution.
Dr. Greco’s vision for Get Help first began as a psychologist struggling to find available program beds for
individuals seeking treatment. The lack of communication between resource and service providers coupled
with multiple data and tracking systems prevented individuals seeking treatment from real-time access to
local services and resources. Dr. Greco’s visionary approach puts the most advanced technology to work on
the most critical problem of our generation and allows people to get the help they need when and where they
need it.
Dr. Greco earned his Doctorate of Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School for Professional Psychology
and holds an undergraduate degree in Business Management from Pepperdine University. He has also served
on the Los Angeles County Psychological Association Board and Chaired the LACPA Early Career
Psychologist Committee.
Prior to earning a doctorate in psychology Tony was Vice President of Business Development at a hospital
detoxification and treatment program, expanding operations and programs. He worked as a business
consultant in the treatment industry, writing program materials, and working with treatment executives to
develop programs.
He was a manager of citywide conventions, conferences, meetings, and other events, in the non-profit and
political sectors, including international twelve-step conferences, gubernatorial campaigns, and was liaison to
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama during an official visit to California. Tony is an advocate in the LGBT
community, active member of a twelve-step community and church ministries that work with the homeless
and addicted.
