19 years ago I found myself face to face with my own addiction. I was lonely, angry, afraid and consumed with self loathing. A kid who was once filled with a great deal of promise as a natural athlete, outgoing, funny and charismatic personality became reduced to being a guy with no ambition, no friends, no job, and was alienated from family.
Even though I had come from a great family with unconditional support, care and understanding, here I was, this desperate drug addict, dyingâ€¦
One day my mother reached out for help and found a guy and, after meeting him, knew that he would be the guy to help me. This guy was what I like to call a â€œstraight shooterâ€, meaning he told it like it wasâ€¦
He met with me and very quickly I knew I couldnâ€™t lie to this guy, I couldnâ€™t hustle him or pull the wool over his eyes. This guy was the real deal!
Iâ€™ll never forget what he did for me, my family and my life, and thus it brings us forward to todayâ€¦
This is what Ware Interventions is, a service built on family. A service provided to you and your loved ones to ensure you get the support you need.
I have spent over 17 years working in drug and alcohol treatment and prevention as a youth worker, drug and alcohol counsellor, coordinator, violence prevention specialist and have served as a director on multiple boards of successful treatment programsâ€¦
Most importantly, though, today Iâ€™m a father, a son, a brother, a friend, and a responsible member of my community. Today I live a far greater life than I could have ever imaginedâ€¦
What we do is help people get clean and sober. What I am good at is coaching people to get thereâ€¦
I look forward to working with you and your loved onesâ€¦
