Don Prince served for sixteen years as a firefighter and Chief of the Brookhaven Fire Department, LI, NY during which time he worked at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9-11. Today Don is in long-term recovery from service-related alcohol addiction which has allowed him to fill the role of a recovery peer support specialist for not only addiction-related issues but also those in recovery from PTSD or other trauma. A peer support specialist is a person who has progressed in their own recovery from substance or other dependence and is willing to self-identify as a peer in order to assist others with their journey into behavioral health sobriety. Don has worked with and continues to work with such agencies as Miami-Dade Fire
Rescue, Fort Lauderdale FR, FDNY, NYPD, and other public safety agencies both large and small. Don is  passionate about  assisting  other responders and their families  get the help they need with addiction, PTS therapy, and other job-related issues in addition to the
development of innovative behavioral health care programs for first responders.
