Buddy T is a former writer for Verywell Mind covering addiction topics. He has been in recovery since July 1989 from the experience of living as an alcoholic. Because he is a member of a support group that stresses the importance of anonymity at the public level, he does not use his photograph or his real name on this website.
Buddy is a founding member of the Online Al-Anon Outreach Committee. Despite years of research and experience, he's still asking questions and discovering surprising answers concerning this cunning, baffling, and powerful disease called alcoholism.
Buddy T has a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology.
