Being on both sides of a counselor's desk provides a perspective of services rendered like no other. It's a glimpse behind the Wizard's curtain. It's a trip wire waiting to set off an explosion of relapse. A slow burn, complete annihilation, or, a rising!

Todd Hopwood has risen, fallen and risen again. As a former Generalist Practice Social Worker and former credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor, as an addict, as a  human being. 

He gives credit to his core group of 12 Step Program friends. His therapists. his teachers. He credits the book, Finding the Still Point
