Learn More About Us;


Michael Farrell,
CADC II, NCAC I, ICADC, a nationally certified Addiction Specialist, has worked in the California Drinking Driver field since 1992 as a counselor, case manager, and group facilitator. He presently specializes in out-of-state drinking driver cases, with expertise in the many different requirements of states other than California, such as Alcohol and Drug Evaluations, screenings, assessments, and treatment programs. He actively practices in the addiction, co-dependency, and ACA recovery field as a counselor, lecturer, consultant, and educator.


He is also the author of "Journey into Recovery", a 12-step oriented workbook which addresses and provides resolution to the specific issues of adult survivors of alcoholic and other dysfunctional family systems.


Jean Mackie - CADC II, CCJP, CIP, the CEO of Mastering Addiction Consciously, is a nationally certified Addiction Specialist, Criminal Justice Addiction Professional and a Board Certified Intervention Professional. She also specializes  in out-of-state DUI cases, conducting Alcohol and Drug evaluations, screenings, assessments and treatment programs in the Los Angeles County area.

CARE programs are conducted for out of state DUI offenders only and individual approval is verified with the authorities in that state before the client contracts for his or her program. CARE does not conduct DUI programs for California DUI offenders, nor does it satisfy or purport to satisfy California DMV requirements for restricted or suspended licenses. In the event a client's California license is suspended as a result of an out of state DUI, CARE will assist clients in whatever referrals are necessary to address that situation.
