On recovery

"I am passionate about seeing people recover from addiction.  I met my partner when he was in early recovery. The stigma associated with addiction would suggest he, and other addicts, should have no hope.  But he is full of life, the most honest person I have ever met, and celebrated four years of sobriety. He is my best friend and an amazing father. Helping any addict will give a wonderful person back to society!"
