My name is Anna Deeds, MSEd, NCC, LPC. I am a licensed counselor and a national certified counselor. I am also a recovering addict. I created a website called Challenging Addiction as a way to reach out to other addicts and help them find their own path to recovery. The mission of Challenging Addiction is to help alcoholics and addicts recover and make positive changes to their lives by offering information and counseling services primarily for alcoholics and addicts who do not have access to traditional counseling, as a compliment to traditional counseling or for those who would not normally participate in counseling due to the stigma of addiction.
