[Video] Facilitator Spotlight – Bernie Quartaroli

Three years ago Bernie Quartaroli found SMART Recovery among the multiple pathways presented to him in detox, and he was hooked. Today, he facilitates two online meetings and one in-person meeting. The gratitude and fulfillment he experiences as a facilitator keeps him motivated and passionate about helping others on their journey.
