Susan Berlin is such a gift to the addiction professionals community. Susan is one of the most informed clinicians I know when it comes to the available resources for addiction treatment and programs around the country. As a clinician, when I am looking for a more intensive program for my client, I easily think of being in touch with Susan. Her dedication to the field of addiction counseling and helping clients and colleagues and is like no other! Susan brings together therapists who have this in common - helping others with their use of addictions and need for help! I have no reservations in recommending Susan and the work she does!
