Hello my name is Dave. A Man on a Mission might best describe me. After struggling for 27 years with alcohol abuse, I found freedom. I am compelled to share my insights, thoughts, and ideas with the hopes of helping others. My journey to sobriety has been anything but easy, but I eventually found freedom from alcohol.   Unfortunately I have also grown to understand that there are literally millions of people “out there” struggling with alcohol and don’t know where to turn for help. I was one of them! That’s when I came up with the idea to create this web site; called Sober Coach One www.sobercoach1.com to help people who are struggling with alcohol; and the families. Sober Coach One is a supportive, private, confidential and safe place to get more information about alcohol abuse and how to quit drinking alcohol.

The Healing Addiction in our Community (HAC) organization is a non-profit, grass-roots organization, dedicated to putting an end to the Heroin and Opiate epidemic that is plaguing New Mexico.  We're using the voices of our children and loved ones to educate and raise awareness about this problem.  We're making a difference and we're going to crush this epidemic!  The HAC was formed in April, 2010 by a group of parents and grandparents concerned about the rising use of heroin among Albuquerque teens. Many of us have been affected by the devastating effects that heroin and opiate addiction has had on our families and our youth, and we decided to take action and do something about it instead of burying our heads in the sand and pretending like this epidemic doesn't exist. We are committed to providing education to parents, teens, educators, legislatures, and health care professionals, about the drug problem plaguing our community. We do this by holding seminars and building relationships with people and other organizations who share our same goals. We are making a difference and we will put an end to this horrible monster that is stealing the souls and lives of our children.
