Cumming, GA – Addiction is everywhere and it can happen to anyone. It does not care about your race, class, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation and it isn’t exclusive to American culture.

Sandra Taylor-Anderson is an addiction interventionist, alcohol and drug counselor as well as an individual and family therapist.

“You don’t have to be defined by your addiction,” says Sandra. “You have a bad disease. Like anyone else, you have got to keep that disease in remission.”

Sandra has enjoyed a storied career in the field of addiction for more than 30 years. She has worked in treatment centers as a counselor, family therapist, and director of adolescent and adult chemical dependency units all over the world. Most recently, she served as program director for Talbott Recovery Center.

“I think outside the box so I’ve always been drawn to working with young adults,” says Sandra. “I have a fundamental belief in people and they know I won’t give or accept any nonsense. That’s why they compare me to Judge Judy. I’m going to tell you like it is. I’m not going to hurt your feelings but I’m going to be straight with you.”

And Sandra is always advocating on behalf of her patients. According to Sandra, today’s parents don’t understand the nature of addiction and how it’s changed. She says she identifies with the difficulties her patients have in their struggles with addiction so she will always invite the family into the process. She’s even been willing to confront parents for enabling behavior.

“Everyone has a purpose. I believe this is my purpose,” says Sandra. “I dispense a lot of hope.”
