I am a recovering addict with a passion for helping people with drug addiction, and educating others who need this info for their own children. I am a writer on Examiner.com as the Detroit Substance Abuse Examiner. I dabble in a little photography, and write "spoof" news stories as well. I was a substance abuse counselor in Detroit in the early 90's, and also a paralegal. I also wrote a book titled "Crash Test Addict" that I am trying to get published.
