STRONG GETTING STRONGER
Michael Strong is a human services professional who is committed to helping people who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, the homeless and veterans. As a homeless systems administrator, intake coordinator, life skills instructor, veteran’s volunteer and most importantly a sponsor, Michael’s remarkable life experiences have prepared him to enlighten, teach and show others how the battles they fight can be overcome.
Strong Getting Stronger could never capture all of the feelings, emotions and events of Michael’s often-turbulent life. Nonetheless, it is Michael’s sincere hope that this book will serve as a beacon of hope and inspire you to seek understanding rather than to be understood and to love more and hate less.
“There are two ways of spreading light – to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." Elizabeth Wharton
Michael Strong flips the coin and gives the reader a bird’s eye view of the other side of addiction. He puts his heart on each page and reveals the intricate process of recovery. Strong Getting Stronger is raw. Strong Getting Stronger is real. Michael Strong is a beacon of light giving hope to the hopeless. As a substance abuse professional, I am certain this work will form the infrastructure needed to create “A Brave New World”.
