My son was in recovery at 16 years old, and -- I was still drinking. I had to quit. I went through treatment at Rocky Mountain Treatment Center in 1984 and have been in recovery ever since. My first year in recovery I did not attend AA. I was in a men’s prayer group and thought that could replace AA. When I attended my first AA meeting the man chairing it said, “Spirituality will save your soul; AA will save your sobriety.” From then on, I have attended meetings regularly.
I worked in the telephone business all my life, consulting and managing. I now give seminars on inductive interference.
Addiction is powerful and baffling. It affects people regardless of their social status. I see it over and over.
My mission as a Board Member at Rocky Mountain Treatment Center, is to make sure it continues to be an asset for addiction recovery for our community.
