    Testimonials & Reviews

    “Great leaders, through their words and more importantly their actions, enable others to live their best lives and to do their best work. In these ways, Chris has brought his own personal growth to his leadership. He is fueled by strongly held values, which we share, and his passion for change in the way society sees addiction and the way our support systems are being designed to help. I am proud to call him a friend and mentor”

    Dr. Dave MartellPresident - Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine

    Chris’ enthusiasm and tireless dedication is making a difference and inspiring others on their personal roads to wellness; one dialogue at a time. We are fortunate to be working with such a selfless and compassionate individual. This is not a job for Chris but rather a passion to make a difference for people who use substances. The growth that I have seen in Chris in the past eight years demonstrates his ability to achieve all that he sets out to achieve while continuing to learn along his journey.

    "I wanted to thank Chris for his presentation. His advice to the supporting family members/friends really touched home for me. I felt very encouraged that although the last few years has been very difficult, there is hope."
