I have chosen to work at an addiction treatment center because I have been active in the 12 step process for six years, and have found supporting others in their recovery to be very personally satisfying. I have chosen to work with the military and first responder population to honor, and follow the example of, my grandfather, the man who raised me during my teenage years and was the greatest male role model anyone could have had. As an Army medic, he survived two wars to work his way to becoming a psychiatrist serving veterans. His philosophy was that someone who is struggling is helped best by someone who has struggled also. I have chosen Warriors Heart because it provides the highest quality of service to those who need and deserve it most.
