SPEAK WITH FRANK

What inspired you to choose this profession?

Working and living a life in recovery, I find more joy and pleasure in daily activities leading to an overall better quality of life. I want to help other addicts like I was helped. I want other addicts to be attracted to the fact that by getting clean and sober I have chosen to take my life back from the powerful grip of abuse and addiction.

What would you want someone to know about working with you?

That I too was hesitant to start this journey in recovery. I was scared, I felt alone, and I was angry – but with all this said – I have found a new purpose in working towards healing versus trying to just “stay clean.”

Why do you work at Lighthouse?

I work at lighthouse because when I was a client here I had a voice, I felt heard, and I felt understood. I decided to work for Lighthouse because I felt the sense of “family.”

What do you wish people knew about Lighthouse who might be hesitant to try it?

I wish people knew how Lighthouse is not your “cookie cutter” program. And the amount of detail and time that goes into helping our clients to heal and giving them the best possibility to succeed.
