The intensive 2 year program worked with DUI offenders as a path to sobriety. Later Bill was a counselor with the Presbyterian Hospital’s chemical dependency treatment program, obtaining multiple certifications in that area. Experiencing 52 years sobriety of his own, his work touched the lives of many.
