My name is Steve Graber, and I have been working the past 6+ yrs with Ten16’s Project ASSERT. When someone at the hospital may be having trouble with substance use, I go and have a conversation with them. If they are interested in making changes, I become a resource person, able to connect them with the appropriate treatment options available to them.
As a person in long-term recovery myself, I find this work very rewarding and an opportunity to give back to individuals who may be as lost as I was. I “speak their language,” and my coworkers at Ten16 are supportive, knowledgeable and dedicated to helping people find their own path to recovery from addiction.
