About Me

I founded ABowens Drug & Alcohol Counseling  to help individuals suffering with chronic addiction. My passion stems from watching individuals and their families battle the stressors of addiction without adequate support. Families should not have to watch their loved ones suffer and too often, die. Addiction  can be treated. Recovery is possible. Sobriety is the start, not the end. With over 20 years of experience working with individuals and families, I have developed a skill for making sure that there is quality of life on the road to recovery, for everyone involved.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
