Oct. 29, 2021 – Daniel says, “I’m not a doctor, I don’t have a PhD. My expertise is life. I think I’m qualified to help people because I started to drink alcohol at the age of 13. At the age of 17, I started injecting heroin into my veins — brilliant idea I know. Thankfully, I was able to stop that at age 22. I smoked cigarettes for over 30 years and I drank for over 30 years. I stopped all three addictions with (my) method, so I think I have an expertise to help other people to do it too. If I can do it, you can do it too.”

It’s certainly an important option to know about, if you’re looking for help to break an addiction to alcohol, but if you have decided it’s time for you to get help from drugs or alcohol, it’s also important to know there are also other options out there. Many are free and others are covered by insurance. Dr. Mendez says, “I think there is a wide spectrum of options out there. Many of these peer support groups exist in various communities. Typically they are free, and sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to find a group that you fit in with and you connect with.”
