I also closely work with patients and families dealing with addiction, withdrawal, and mental health disorders. I am passionate about what I do, about offering help to memebers of our community, and about raising awareness on these topics. I have been on the Anazao board for about two years now, and feel lucky to be a part of such a great team."
