Message from Founder

Not only am I an addictions specialist, I am also a recovered addict. I grew up in an alcoholic home with a father whose addiction messed up his whole family. As a teenager, I started drinking and using drugs and by the time I was 27 I almost committed suicide because my life was such a mess due to my upbringing and me becoming an addict. After getting into recovery, I decided that I wanted to become a drug & alcohol counsellor and help others in the way that I’d been helped when I needed it. Since then, teaching others about the dangers of addiction has become my mission in life,  my life’s work.  I think everyone deserves a chance at a good life and addiction can take that away in just one day. My goal is to try to prevent that from happening for as many people as possible. I believe that what I offer is probably the best chance you will ever get at a reality check that could save your life or the life of your kids. I can promise you that won’t find anything more impactful than this or someone more passionate about helping others avoid addiction than me.
