Obie Bussey

Executive Director

Obie Bussey is an accomplished Nonprofit Executive Director with over 25 years’ experience in the Substance Abuse arena. Obie presently serves as the Executive Director of the Adult Rehabilitation Ministry (ARM). Over 5,000 men and 800 women have had their lives impacted by coming through this program under Obie’s direction.

During his tenure at ARM, Obie is credited with implementing a variety of special programs to better equip clients with addiction as well as their families. ARM’s Aftercare and Intervention programs were each created after he noticed a need in the program graduates for more support managing their lives post-graduation. Additionally, Obie established a “Family Meeting” ministry which helps to educate the clients’ family members on the recovery process. Moreover, the Family Meeting aids in healing broken relationships and provides a non-threatening environment for fellowship.

In 2016, teaming with a dedicated group of like-minded volunteers, Obie established WARM (Women Adult Rehabilitation Ministry), as a residential drug recovery program specifically for women.

In 2018, Obie’s most recent venture sought to reach a broader audience of people suffering from addiction and provide support through ARM’s programs. He has partnered with local Drug Courts and Veteran’s Courts to provide substance abuse care, as well as a suite of other related services, including certified Anger Management, Battering Intervention and Prevention, and Mental Health Peer Specialist programs.

Obie also teaches spiritual-based recovery classes and is a well-established counselor and motivational speaker. A coffee lover, avid reader, and walking enthusiast, Obie has five children and lives in the Dallas, TX suburbs with his wife, Melody.
