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, dying.
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 straight shooter, meaning he told it like it was.
He met with me and very quickly I knew I couldn’t lie to this guy, I couldn’t hustle him or pull the wool over his eyes. This guy was the real deal!
I’ll never forget what he did for me, my family and my life, and thus it brings us forward to today.
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 programs.
Most importantly, though, today I’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 imagined.
What we do is help people get clean and sober. What I am good at is coaching people to get there.
I look forward to working with you and your loved ones.
