“I have always found happiness in helping others, it brings and sense of peace.  My addiction took my peace and I know what it is like to feel lost.  Addiction is a symptom of something much deeper…. Sadness, loss, pain, trauma.  But peace is still there, you just have to be brave enough to grab it.”
