blockquote“Pete” was an ice user and dealer who had hit bottom, yet had no clue how to reconstruct his life. Pete’s participation in his substance abuse treatment program along with the structure and support of the Vocational Skills Building program enabled him to address his criminal thinking and behaviors. It was clear that he was bright and had excellent people and entrepreneurial skills, and Pete was able to obtain employment in a nationally recognized business with a location in Kona. After about six months he was promoted to department supervisor, and is in line for further growth with the company. He is very active in the recovery community as a sponsor to others in early recovery, and has almost 3 years ‘clean’ time.
