𝐖𝐇𝐀𝐓 𝐋𝐄𝐃 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐓𝐎 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒 𝐂𝐀𝐑𝐄𝐄𝐑? Growing up I saw how the system and society mistreated or judge convicted felons and people suffering with substance abuse issues, which made me want to do something about it.
We are all human beings and have all made mistakes, but we cannot continue to condemn people for their mistakes. It is important for people to create a healing environment for these individuals to be successful and reduce their risk for recidivism. I feel I have been able to do so in my current field.
