path from a pebble“I worked with Doug Casper in a men’s long-term residential treatment center and was impressed with his knowledge of the disease of addiction, his understanding of the challenges faced in early recovery, and his ability to reach out to the most recalcitrant and unwilling of clients. Doug has an authoritative and experienced voice, as well as a disarming and supportive demeanor. Never did I doubt that Doug was looking out for the best interests of our patients, nor did I doubt that patients recognized his utmost commitment to their well-being. Doug’s treatment expertise, personal experience, and common sense are a rare combination in the addiction treatment field. While by definition, not all addicts are prepared to change, it is clear to me that Doug’s approach motivates his clients to make serious and significant changes on their path to sobriety.”
Dr. Steve Balt, MD

“Doug was an intricate part of my early recovery. Doug was very capable of balancing his emotional involvement and objective decision making. Having been a chronic relapser, I have been in and out of various treatments and had numerous counselors. Doug is unique in the sense that he was there for me in my early recovery, and I still would not hesitate to contact him if I needed advice or just someone to talk to. I have very fond memories of Doug and am very grateful he was a part of my road to recovery.”
