Because of my own addiction struggles, I wanted to give back the gift of life. Many addicts are not aware that there is a good life after drugs and alcohol. I wanted to prove to them that treatment works!!
I have gone through my own addiction and treatment. I also had mental health issues to work through. And my life is amazing today. That is the hope I bring to these patients. If I can do it, so can they. I feel someone who walked in their shoes can best relate to them.
Without my personal experience, I wouldn’t have the knowledge nor the confidence to help others. Because of my personal experience, I’m able to be a part of something bigger than myself, and that’s the introduction to a program that has the ability to save and change lives. And I love it!
