Tony had his own struggle with addiction which included using drugs and alcohol for over 30 years. He decided to ask for help for his addiction in 2006 and voluntarily participated in treatment. “My treatment experience was such that I received an understanding and therapy for the underlying issue which facilitated my drug and alcohol use. Once the underlying issue was addressed and treated, I no longer needed to use drugs. I still need the support of my family and recovery friends to help me stay clean and sober. My treatment experience and the changes in my life as a result were so amazing that it sent me on a path to help others with mental illness and substance abuse.” – Tony B.
