My name is Billy Anderson, first and foremost- I am a person in Recovery. During my years of abusing drugs and alcohol I went to depths I never thought I would. I lost my family, my friends, my sanity, and my dignity. I fought for years to control my substance use. I could not see a future for myself. My family went to the ends of the earth to help me in the years before. I saw psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and attempted treatment on many occasions. I was given a last opportunity to enter Recovery in January of 2012. With the boundaries my family had put in place and every option exhausted I realized it was time for me to focus on my life and give up my vain attempts at controlling my use. I looked to the future and what could be if Recovery were to happen. I was completely hopeless but with time, work, and consistent reinforcement- my Recovery began to materialize. My relationships with my family and friends are repaired and today I am a proud father and husband. I have worked in the Recovery field helping families since 2013. I have been in various roles during this time- from operating Sober Living programs and Admissions to Treatment Placement Specialist and Business Development. During my beginnings in Recovery in late 2013 I took a class on interventions and was inspired. I continued that education and took more Education classes and Intervention training over the years until I achieved my CIP Certification. My family’s role in my recovery process was pivotal in my success and I realized without the education they received I would not be where I am today. I have been conducting interventions and helping assist families with consulting and treatment placement ever since. My goal with you is to further your education on what addiction is, what recovery is, and explain how to support your loved one and yourselves during the recovery process. The recovery process is a long one, and I am here for the ride with you. Without my family having the education and recovery of their own and staying strong when needed I would not be alive today. My hope is to give you all the tools needed to give your family success in recovery and help your loved one to accept the help being offered.
