I am getting ready for another day, working with beautiful people enslaved by addiction. So many times a day, the disease of addiction is dressed up as human suits and throws some negativity our way. Thankfully, I don’t mistake the behavior for the person. Behind the denial, anger, and fear lies amazing human beings. The light bulb comes on with time, and the result makes every day in the trenches worth while. Of course, its sad when addiction winds in the end. But I hope that I do the best I can today for whoever I have the honor and privilege to serve. In between the Michael Jacksons and Whitney Houstons are many unsung people just as important and just as tragic. And on the other side of the same coin, in between the Robert Downeys and Colin Hays are many heroes who make all this the best job in the world.
