Three years ago Bernie Quartaroli found SMART Recovery among the multiple pathways presented to him in detox, and he was hooked. Today, he facilitates two online meetings and one in-person meeting. The gratitude and fulfillment he experiences as a facilitator keeps him motivated and passionate about helping others on their journey.
