With over a decade of editing experience, Tom is the editor for the Advanced Recovery Systems content team where he polishes the great research articles, news releases and blog posts that the content team produces every day. Working with such a passionate team of dedicated writers inspires Tom to ensure that the quality of the content remains top-notch so that as many people as possible can understand the perils of substance use disorders. That understanding can help those who are seeking treatment find the accessible treatment needed for a safe recovery from drugs or alcohol.

Tom occasionally produces content covering substance use disorders and the mental health conditions that often accompany them. Because the American opioid epidemic is such a far-reaching tragedy, Tom finds the content team’s work to be incredibly vital to raising awareness about the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction. The success of Advanced Recovery Systems’ alumni further inspires Tom, as he has seen first-hand how the team’s content can literally save someone’s life.
