In addition, he assists families to find resources that meet their needs to assist them deal with a family member who is addicted to narcotics. He also responds to all narcotics related overdose deaths and assists with the investigation.

He has many years of experience educating youth and families regarding the dangers or drug and alcohol abuse.

Since 2018, he has been part of the J-Team at the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station, specializing in narcotic education and intervention of both adults and juveniles.
