      I know you stated that you are a previous addict. Do you have any background in healthcare, addiction services, psychiatric services, etc?

        I am NOT a previous addict and have never stated that I was. I am the father of an adult son who has struggled with addiction for 12+ years.

      Hey, haven't been on in a couple days, slipped again. 3 days sobriety then back on. Is what it is, I have learned that self hate does not help

      Anyways reason I messaged was to say hi and ask how you are doing? I hope you and your son are well. -Paul

    The father of a son in long-term recovery from addiction, I also quit drinking in September of 2008 when a family therapist at my son's treatment facility told me to "be the change you want to see in your son." I am passionate about helping others and constantly work to help break the stigma associated with addiction and mental health issues. In addition to a personal blog that chronicles my experiences with my son, I also write for other websites, including The Huffington Post and The Fix.
