Darren's Cause

In 2007 Darren quit smoking. Prior to that he smoked a package of cigarettes a day. Quitting was one of the hardest things he had ever done. Like most people Darren also had family and friends who suffered from far more devastating addictions. Alcohol, drugs, gambling etc. He lost his first cousin David to addiction. Rest in peace.

In addition to being afflicted with an addictive behavior the sufferer also must live with the stigma placed on them by some judgmental individuals. "They have no will power, they are lazy, they want to be addicted". In reality most addicted individuals have under lying physical or mental maladies that have predisposed them to their addictive behavior.

As a board member of a local addiction recovery centre Darren is blessed to rub shoulders with a network of Doctors, Specialists and Professionals in an effort to help people recover from addiction. By supporting this company you support Darren and by supporting Darren you support Darren's Cause.

If you know someone who suffers and they don't know where to turn feel free to contact Darren. There is help available. There is hope.
