Drug & Alcohol Treatment
Specialist & Author
The word HELP has been in Susan’s blood since she was a young girl. Growing up in a small town in Newfoundland & Labrador, she came from a family that naturally helped others. Later she became interested in working with the elderly and making their last years comfortable. Susan worked for more than 20 years in this field, and she was passionate about it.
Later, in 2003, she decided to change her career to helping people LIVE; this became her continuous mission and life work. She joined the team at a renowned drug rehabilitation center in the province of Quebec, where she saw firsthand how treatment could help a person’s spirit, mind & body become healthy again.
She is now a licensed Drug & Alcohol Treatment Specialist and dedicates her life to helping substance misusers get control back into their lives.
She also helps and consults family members who call ARC Services. She points them in the right direction for treatment centers. Or she will take the time and listen to the relatives and their needs. She set up an Online Addiction Recovery Coaching Service.
At the beginning of her carrier, she thought, “I can help the elderly by making their passing dignified and respectful.” When the carrier change occurred, she realized that she was now preparing people to live life instead of preparing them to die.
