Tell Your Story

Before I was a writer, I was a DICM (Drug and Alcohol Intensive Case Manager). I worked with people who were addicted and attempted to remove barriers that stood in the way of their recovery.

Rarely did I work with a person new to addiction. Most of my adult clients were chronic abusers. People who were in and out of jail and in and out of rehab. Those people whose families no longer answered the phones or unlocked the doors.
