Review for National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc., Sacramento Region Affiliate, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

*8 years ago my life had taken a turn for the worst and I was addicted to Meth. I was arrested at the age of 44 and then offered Prop 36 and a way to get my life back. I was ordered to do my out patient at NCADD Sacramento. I completed 1 year of treatment through the help of NCADD and Staff. After graduating from treatment I came back as a volunteer to speak to the groups about the great experience I had in treatment and changeing my life. While volunteering I started to go to school to become certified in the field of addiction. I started working in a recovery home for women and became certified. I eventually became the program Manager of that recovery home. I worked there for 6 years. In December of 2008 I was offered a counseling job at NCADD and have ben here ever since. If it weren't for the great Staff and counselors there I would not be doing what I love to do these days , working with women and children who need guidence and caring. NCADD made all the difference in my life 8 years ago, and today I have the opportunity to do same for others. NCADD saved my life!
