A note from Josh:
“I get it. I have lived under addiction’s power. Isolated. Desperately trying to find freedom. Hurting myself and those closest to me. It wasn’t until I started seeing a counselor and sharing my struggles honestly that I began to deeply heal. I was accepted, made sense of addiction, and applied truth to my life. I’ have dedicated my life to share what I know about addiction and recovery with the world.It’s not easy to begin. Take that courageous first step and call me today. You don’t have to face these challenges alone.”
