“I first met Chris online around 1999 to 2000, being a recovering alcoholic I stumbled across the website intervention.org. I had exchanged a few emails with Chris and had a particular interest in his work as a photographer. Having read many of the blogs and writings of Chris I gained valuable information about recovery. In early 2007 I relapsed after 7 years of sobriety, feeling alone, guilt ridden and confused I called Chris on the phone, he immediately helped me find a local meeting and the following day had his sponsor call me on the phone, Somehow I wasn’t surprised but was still very much inspired by the kind actions of someone I had only met via the internet. I can not imagine what more an employer might look for or want in an employee. I would highly recommend Chris, he helped me tremendously in a time of need, freely and without obligation. Sincerely, Timothy A. Hynde” May 8, 2007.
