My name is Jeff Aldridge, and I am excited, as well as humbled to join work in the addictions field. My passion is working with those who suffer from addictions. I have firsthand knowledge of the life of an alcoholic and addict. I also have firsthand knowledge and experience on how recovery from this chronic disease is very possible. Being a recovered alcoholic and addict myself for many years, living one day at a time I have the opportunity to work with many individuals of every culture, race and background in many treatment settings and levels of care.

I am also certified as a NC DMV DWI Evaluator and have enjoyed doing evaluations and assessments for many years. I am registered presentlly with N.C.
