"He is living proof that addiction can happen to anyone, and his willingness to forgo anonymity to tell his story helps break the stigma of addiction and inspires others to seek help. Anyone who is in recovery or even considering it should attend this event and listen to Joe's story of hope. We are proud that DecisionPoint Wellness was able to play a part in Joe overcoming his addiction, but all the credit goes to Joe.
