"I started using the services [at The Council] over a year ago.  When I got sober again I quite literally only had the clothes on my back, little to no prospects and very little hope I could ever get back on my feet.  

Through AA, some friends that were sober, and the staff and services [at the Recovery Center], I find myself in a position that I really doubted I could get back to....The [help I received] was a godsend...I'm starting a position that will not allow me to spend much time here to volunteer [anymore] but, again, that is kind of the point of what you do here.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Botticelli Is A Person In Recovery

The White House has nominated Michael Botticelli to be Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.  He has held the position on an acting basis since March.  

Director Botticelli previously served as Director of Substance Abuse Services in Massachusetts where he successfully expanded innovative and nationally recognized prevention, intervention and recovery services.  He forges strong partnerships with stakeholders at the local, state and federal levels.   As our nation's new Drug Czar, Botticelli vows to continue the national effort to reduce drug use and its consequences, and spearhead programs that help people with addiction find jobs and housing. 

A recovering alcoholic, Botticelli has been sober for a quarter of a century. Read the full article in  The Washington Post and watch the video of Botticelli telling his recovery story.
