About Tanya

In February of 2009, I made a decision to stop slowly killing myself. I had spent more than 2 decades in a vocation that was chipping away at my soul while at the same time feeding my alcohol and drug addictions, which were growing beyond my control.

After 8 years in 12-step doctrine and meetings, after several relapses, and after losing several friends who didn’t return from their relapses, I decided to find a more secular, evidence-based program that could not only help me in my recovery journey, but also help others who were challenged by substance use disorder (SUD) and other mental health issues.

Since 2018, I’m happy to say that SMART (self-management and recovery training) has helped me stay on the wagon of life.
