"I must tell you Jim and I walked away with a wealth of information from you. Even better, our relationship with our son since this class has been awesome. He has not left home, he is working, going to school and back playing hockey!!!"
"Myself and my four kids are all great. MY son is not totally out of the woods yet but he has come miles from where he was and I thank you again for your help. He is physically back to being very healthy and has not lost his love of staying very fit and keeping his love and God given talent for volleyball. It's like we have our loving brother and son back. Our relationship is almost back to where it used to be. Please continue to send me your newsletters and know that I would recommend your help to anyone who I know needs it.”
"I will sincerely never forget Tom’s story.”
Alberta High School
"I have seen Tom’s presentation a few times now. It is straightforward and straight talk. Tom’s discussion is focused on his own personal journey with schizophrenia, drug use, and most of all the focus on making your own choices. The students find him engaging and many said it was one of the best presentations they have seen. I was most impressed with his honesty as a presenter.”
CALM 20 Teacher, HJ Cody High School
“Since meeting Tom we have a new way of looking at our relationship with our son. We could never have gotten this understanding from anywhere else. We now have ways to manage our home that leads to success. Thank you Tom”.

“Street Smart Counselling shows the addict how to empower themselves and make changes on their own. It is refreshing to see other avenues to recovery."
Resident at Our House Recovery Center, AB
“I went to Tom to learn about a family member with an addiction and I learned things about addiction that I’ve never heard before. When I used his principles with my relative it was my door he showed up on when he wanted to change. I’ve never been closer to this person before than I am now, thank you Tom!”

“Facts about drugs can be found on the internet. Hearing the emotion from a person who is speaking about a personal experience has much more of an impact”.
