“I have worked for Charlie’s Place for a total of fourteen years. I have a passion for the clientele we serve because I was at a point in my life where my addiction was in control. I received love and understanding and learned that I had a disease. Charlie’s gave me discipline and hope that I so badly needed. I believe that there is nothing as therapeutic as one alcoholic helping another and believe it helped me in counseling for many years. I wanted to do more good by training counselor interns, increasing their skills and thereby helping more clients at the same time and insuring the quality of work and services Charlie’s Place provides continues to be the best.”
