I have spent most of my adult life serving others in some capacity. One of my greatest goals in this life is to bring the gift of recovery to other addicts and alcoholics. Even though the disease of drug addiction may have destroyed their lives, hopes and ambitions, they can recover. I want them to learn that there is still hope and that they can live a wonderful productive and successful life free of drugs and alcohol. They just have to learn how.
