Christopher A. Matthews Scholarship
In 2009, immediately upon completing my undergraduate degree in Public Health, I answered the call to enter the field of Substance Abuse Counseling. My journey began as a Prevention Specialist at a Substance Abuse facility near downtown Charlotte. In 2011, I made the choice to transition across the continuum of care towards treating the disease of addiction as a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor.
In 2016, I completed my graduate studies in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy, and obtained licensures as a Clinical Addiction Specialist, and Marriage and Family Therapist Associate. Along my educational journey, I received invaluable training that afforded me with the tools to fight the disease of addiction, and mend broken marriages and families.
