I am an addiction counselor from Romania and I received a lot of help in my professional experience and to become a good leader in this field. Since 1999, when I was a student Terry made my first introduction to addiction field by a small training in Romania, which directed my study from there on. I received training in the addiction field, from the members of GOAL Project since 2001, when I was already working in the St. Dimitrie Project in Cluj Napoca, I was helped financially to participate to an international training in Egypt with ISAACS in 2001, for becoming an addiction specialist and to an international conference in US in 2008. Besides that I received a lot of support through other specific trainings in my country, literature and printing the romanian translation of "Tree of life" book by Terry Webb. The support I received either through training or personal experience made me what I am today. I think that in my country as in others where GOAL Project is present it made a difference in preparing g people to be leaders in this field. I greatly appreciate all their efforts in this direction, and I hope I can give back this help by helping others to grow as I did.
