About Kevin Alter
Founder & Author

My name is Kevin Alter and I am the founder of The Addict’s Diary. I struggled with substance use disorder from the age of seventeen to twenty-seven. When I got clean I noticed that there was a general misconception of the addict. I wanted to change that, so I did my best to humanize addiction. I wanted people to see us for who we really are. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I wanted to break the stigma, inspire people, educate students, and save lives all with stroke of a keyboard. I decided to take the reader along with me on my journey. I put my all into it and it worked.

The Addict’s Diary offers support services to those suffering from addiction and to the family or friends affected by their loved ones substance use. From our own personal experience, we provide the answers to the questions you might have in hopes of helping guide you towards a solution.
