Attributes Success To:
I think my successes are due to the passion that I have for helping to assist people out of the depth of darkness from addiction. I take pride in the work I do, and I will help anyone who has a "willingness to live." It is a very incapacitating "disease" and most people feel that it is almost impossible to stop using alcohol and drugs. I know differently and think differently, for I know that anything is possible! It is the individual who has the "key" and I am very excited to begin working with others, to create a life worth living and becoming "whole" and substance free!
