Recovery Is Possible

Thomas Christiansen


With over a decade of editing experience, Tom is a content specialist for Advanced Recovery Systems, where he edits the great research articles, news releases and blog posts that are produced 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 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 Advanced Recovery Systems’ 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 written content can literally save someone’s life.
