Hello, and thanks for checking out my site about addiction!
I’m the one who created and has nurtured this site since 2001. It’s hard to believe it’s been over a decade, but there has never been a shortage of people struggling with addiction in need of help.
For almost half of my life I have been actively involved in counseling, teaching, consulting and doing research on addiction, and I’m proud that it has become a central focus of my life’s work.
For those interested in my credentials, I’m a psychologist, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Certified Addiction Specialist, with a master’s degree in counseling psychology and a doctoral degree in systems science and social psychology.
