Gayle Saks holds a unique perspective on addiction. Not in recovery herself she stumbled upon a second career as a substance abuse counselor after 25 years of being a non-profit fundraiser after volunteering with incarcerated men and women, most with substance abuse issues. There is no turning back.
A piece about her best friend’s addiction to crystal meth was chosen as an Editor’s Pick on opensalon.com, the sister site of Salon.com.
Saks lives in the Greater Boston area with her husband, daughter and way too many animals.
