Choices had to be made, and for change to happen, there had to be a solid foundation of recovery put in place. After many years of 12 step recovery, as well as a strong faith in God, and the help of numerous people, Max uses his past to help others realize that they don't have to go down as far as he did before they reach out for help. His goal is to be there for someone in their worst moment, without judgement.
