My name is Amy Clark, and I am a counselor who specializes in addiction therapy. I have been doing this for 8 years and feel a profound connection to my work. This is because addiction has been a part of my life since I was a young girl. My sister battled with a fentanyl addiction throughout my childhood, and unfortunately she passed away when I was 16.

Since then, I have made it my mission to ensure I help as many fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters not lose a loved one like I did. So if you are struggling and you are reading this, know that I am on your team, and I always will be. 

I hope this website can provide you with the push you may need to confront your addiction but most importantly- save your life.
