Dotty Lerum

Dotty has worked in addiction treatment since 1977 and maintains the highest international and Florida-specific certifications for addiction professionals. She puts her heart and soul into helping each person (finally) stay sober.

“I care about each and every person, but I don’t accept excuses. It’s often been years of lying, denying and manipulating. This is where those behaviors end. Once you get on the right path, you just have to keep walking.”
