OUR PRESIDENT'S STORY
"As a person living in long term recovery, I was inspired by a former AA sponsee who was willing to do anything to keep her daughter, a heroin addict, alive. By joining her on the front lines of this battle, I learned a lot about the disease of addiction (beyond my own alcoholism) and about the stigma that keeps so many people sick. I believe that by educating parents as well as children, we can help prevent another generation going down the road of addiction that too often leads to death. Today, my passion is prevention."
