After suffering for years with his own addiction he was able to get sober and has stayed sober since 1994. Thomas still regularly attends recovery meetings and has made helping others a vitally important part of his life.

Helping families do interventions and working as a sober companion since 2010 has given him valuable experience in the alcohol and drug abuse field. Thomas also has managed sober living facilities in Brooklyn, NY. Providing sober transport to appointments and rehabilitation centers is also part of his resume.

He has vast experience navigating not only New York City but the entire country. He has a network of rehabs, clinicians, therapists, interventionists and sober coaches that he relies on to assist him with his clients. Thomas is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you and your families. The staff he employs are all in recovery themselves.
