I started this page so that people can learn about substance abuse and what they can do for their loved ones. Also, so people can share their stories of recovery! A lot of people see the negative side, and I would like people to see the positive side.. people changing their lives for the better. I personally used for 14 years and never thought I would ever be out of the grips of addiction, but I got sober, and I’m working my butt off to STAY SOBER! I’ve been given this second chance at life, and I want to help others, like others so freely helped me in my time of need.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me.
I started this page so that people can learn about substance abuse and educate themselves about drugs, their effects, different treatment options, etc. If someone you know is suffering from drug/alcohol addiction we have a ton of resources by state, and intervention techniques to help you, help them.
What I would love to do with a new project of mine, is start a show called “A Recovery Story” so that people can tell their own stories, in their own words. I’m going to start a YouTube channel first and see how it does there. Than hopefully I can link up with a production company and try to get this broadcast on television. If you’d like to volunteer for the YouTube channel than please contact me so I can give you more information.
Hmm… where shall I start? I’m 27 years young originally from New Jersey, but currently residing in New York City. I’m a mother to 3 amazing little boys ages 3, 5 and 9. I’m also a veteran. I served in the NJ Army National Guard for 3 years as an automated logistics specialist. It was a wonderful experience! I’m in recovery & have been clean for almost 2 years. My clean date is May 2nd 2012. I have a BIG passion for everything substance abuse and recovery related. I LOVE to help others who are currently trying to get and remain sober. I’m a recovery coach and have been certified by OASAS here in NYS (new York State). I’m in the process of obtaining my CASAC and CADC so I can finally become a licensed drug and alcohol counselor. I want to do even more to help those in need than what I’m already doing, and getting my CASAC and CADC is a step in the right direction. If you want to read about my story, I’ve posted links to my 2 posts about my personal journey on the bottom of this page. If you want more information on hiring me as a recovery coach, please contact me so we can talk about your personal needs.
