- Life Is Worth Living Because...
- ...of the opportunities I have had presented me to be able to work in the service of the humanity that surrounds me, the privilege of being a parent to 2 outstanding children one of which has presented me with a beautiful and amazing grand daughter. There is no happiness that can compare with the gifts I have been blessed with. Life is simple and it is great.
- About My Work
My activities included program and workshop development, development and implementation of an 8 week out-patient treatment/support program, development of a 4 week in-patient men's group that dealt with relationships and family issues and I facilitated a weekly out-patient support group. I was also asked to mentor Masters Level Students at our facility--those who were involved in co-op programs through their schools as part of their curricula.
As for my responsibilities I was asked to manage a 6-8 client residential in-patient case load, create and monitor an individual treatment plan for each client, complete all post treatment referrals, presented a variety of recovery related workshops to the residential community each week, participated in back to work sessions with clients employer and the client, led family sessions with client and family members and acted on behalf of the client with legal system representatives. Also participated in therapeutic discharges for those clients who weren't matched well to the program offered.
- My Story
- My experience would include the lessons taught by over 20 years of active use, leading to 23 years of sobriety and what I consider to be a state of quality living. I learned many things in a practical sense from attending A/A, C/A and N/A. Sometimes the best education can come from the most unlikely sources. I graduated from College and completed the Addiction Studies Program at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. I also completed a variety of courses concerning mental health issues and gambling addiction, family systems and relationships.
