I’ve always enjoyed spending my time helping others. I have experience working in various modalities of substance abuse treatment including Residential, Adolescent and Mother&Child programs as well as assisting individuals with vocational training. Substance abuse has destroyed families, led to the destruction of communities and has claimed countless lives. I can’t think of a better way for me to contribute to society than to help people turn their lives around.
I guide people with substance use disorders and help them to learn a better way of life. I arm them with tools to maintain abstinence from illicit substances and teach them ways to restore the trust in themselves as well as their broken relationships. My job allows me to assist people with addressing all aspects of their lives including physical health, mental health education, criminal thinking, domestic violence issues, obtaining permanent housing, stable employment and to become productive members of society.
I feel tremendous pride when I see the face of a client who successfully completes our program, having improved their quality of life. This is why I do what I do and why I love it.
