Shortly after successfully completing his own treatment program for substance abuse issues, Sam began working in treatment in 2016. At In Balance Continuum of Care in Tucson, AZ, Sam started as a Life/Recovery Coach to residents and thoroughly enjoyed using his own experience to help guide young men through their journey of recovery from substance abuse issues. In 2018, Sam took on the responsibilities of Alumni Outreach and Continuing Care Coordinator, where he organized weekly groups for local alumni and kept in touch with alumni who were no longer in Tucson. During this time, he also served as manager of an In Balance sober living home. Throughout his time with In Balance, Sam also attended various NATSAP regional conferences to help with outreach work.
