[Video] Life Beyond Addiction – Steve Kind

Steve Kind’s alcohol use started in high school and progressed to a real problem over the years. After several attempts at treatment programs, he met a counselor who knew about SMART and suggested he look into the program. It was like a lightning bolt that propelled him to success over his addiction. He now facilitates meetings and is helping others live their Life Beyond Addiction
