I met the founder at my church. I am a recovering addict and I know from personal experience through Carson City's rehab centers that the I AM Workshop Tour-Pure Compassion is the best recovery program there is. Meth is a big problem in Carson City alone. I know this because I was a victim to Meth for years. I know that with the ProMeta Treatment Program that the I AM Workshop Tour-Pure Compassion has will help anyone who honestly and sincerely wants help from their addiction. The I Am Workshop Tour-Pure Compassion is faith based where the other rehabs in Carson City are not. At other rehabs you are not allowed to read a bible or do anything that is based on religion. I was told that if I was allowed to study my religion then everyone would be allowed to and that would cause a conflict within the rehab. Since volunteering with I Am Workshop Tour-Pure Compassion and helping with organizing the events I have become closer with my creator, my Father and my Savior. Thank you Alan for your support in my recovery. I wish that I could have gone through your program as it is faith based and I believe I would have gotten stronger in my religion. But through you I am getting stronger in my faith, because we have the same beliefs. Thanks again!!

The IAM Workshop is is not only a much-needed organization, but one overseen by those who "know." Personally, I have know Alan Sweet for over three decades and have observed him going full-circle. As well, my wife and I have family members who have struggled with substance abuses and therefore know what it takes. And yet the IAM Workshop is at least one step beyond: they offer hope upon hope, for it is in the context of the Gospel of Christ.
I met the founder of the I AM Workshop Tour at my church when he was promoting a fund raising event, I was so impressed with his cause I immediately volunteered to help him. The cause of helping people break drug and alcohol addictions is a serious and noble matter. We all know somebody... I have been involved almost daily, now, learning more about addiction treatment issues, various treatment approaches, Non Profit organizations in general and now am learning grant writing in particular. I strongly believe the I AM Workshop Tour can and will one day be a leader in drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs; provided we can get proper and sufficient funding. Week in and week out we receive kudos and many kind words of encouragement and support of our endeavor. Its both an honor and privilege to be associated with the I AM Workshop Tour.
I have struggled with alcoholism for 9 years. I have been through every treatment center in No. NV with no lasting results. I was ready to give up hope. I had lost My 2 yr old son and my husband divorced me. My parents no longer wanted contact with me, I was unemployable. until I came to hear about the I AM WST and personally witnessed the results of their client. I am now 6 months sober and am being served by I Am workshop in many ways. I am coming into their low income jobs program, am in process of getting custody of my son back, I AM WST has even helped my find a low income Apt complex. Mr. and Mrs. Sweet genuinely care about their community and the people in it. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is a hopeless an addict/ alcoholic as I was. "I AM" WST saved my life and helped me gain back my family.
When one spends thei life in the Entertainment field as an Artist and a company professional, the daily reminder of how fragile and destructive substance abuse can be is a constant and bold reality. When you lose close friends, family members and colleagues to alcohol and/or drug abuse or you witness their lack of functionality and accomplishment when they are under the "spell" of this disease, you soon realize that eradicating this vicious "monster" is in ALL our best interests. The I AM Workshop ,and Alan and Michelle Sweet have proven that their intentions, work and heart-felt efforts are not only valuable but also critical. I applaud their work, their core beliefs and ethics and their willingness to unselfishly assist this terrible and MUCH too common affliction.
I met Alan and Michelle Sweet approximately two years ago. I have never met such dedicated, passionate people. They are instrumental in helping individuals break their drug and alcohol addictions. They have given many a second chance at life! This community needs folks like the Sweets.
I've worked closely with The I AM Workshop Tour for well over a year, now, and I am tremendously impressed with the dedication to their mission. They work 'round the clock to see that they get people in their state the help they need. Based on personal experience, this organization's power to make lasting change in people's lives is unsurpassed.

Alan Sweet is a machine! The man will not rest until his calling and organization (I AM Workshop Tour) has helped all those who need and want help. After graduating from Stanford in 2002 I have been involved in several non-profits around the country and never have I seen someone so persistent and committed to make a difference than Alan. If you have a desire to help people break their addictions, please consider placing your support behind the I AM Workshop Tour. There are so many exciting things taking place and I give Alan my full endorsement.
The "I AM" Workshop Tour has exhibited it's nature of "Pure Compassion". While working as a volunteer secretary, I have witnessed the organization get its 501-(C)(3), and assist a Carson City resident with his 30 year addiction to alcohol. This gentleman was taken to San Ramon, CA to undergo treatment on the founder's last $3,000.00. The "I AM" Workshop Tour is presently waiting on assisting about 4 more patients. It would be great to see more financial backing!
