Philosophy of Care

A substance use disorder is a disease, not a decision. I understand that there are many paths to recovery. My goal is to collaborate with clients to find the path that will work for them because recovery is possible. I am passionate about meeting each individual at where they are in their lives and helping them live their life to the fullest without the use of alcohol and other drugs.
