How does it work?

Simply put, if you need someone to talk to about your struggle with alcohol or drugs, text.

What kind of “support” is provided?

“Think of it as like a mentor or coach to help you manage your drinking or drug use. Through motivation, support, listening and education I hope to empower you to make the next best step in managing alcohol or drugs in your life. I don’t promote a particular path or way to recovery and will not tell you what to do. You are the expert in your life. Working together, I will assist you in getting clarity into what is needed to manage your addiction, help you make a plan to address it and then put it into action.

This is not treatment or counseling as I will not diagnose or treat an underlying issue such as depression or anxiety or focus on an emotional or psychological pain of the past, but rather encourage and motivate you to seek someone who can treat those issues if present.

Working together, we can sort through all the variables in your life that may be contributing to your alcohol or drug use. Then, through encouragement, guidance and motivation, help you move from this point in your life on to whatever future you may seek – sober.”
