"Providing solutions for a healthier workplace, family and community since 2001"
Arthur Ritchie, CDCA with founder, Max Burkins, LICDC, SAP
Our company was founded in 2001, by Max Burkins, a nationally-acclaimed substance abuse professional, because he recognized the heavy toll that substance abuse exacts on families, the workplace, and the community at large.  Max set out on a mission to increase awareness of workplace substance abuse, and the need for companies to be proactive in preventing, addressing, and removing substance abuse in the workplace.

Today we continue our mission to assist individuals who are struggling with substance abuse issues, and to assist employers with their efforts to maintain a safe and productive work environment by identifying and addressing workplace substance abuse issues.
