This page was made possible by a generous gift from NFIA Board Member, Ted Johnson and his wife, Delores, in memory of their son, Steven.
Mr. Johnson died in December 2009 of liver cirrhosis due to alcoholism, a disorder he concealed from everyone.
His parents wish that all who have a substance use disorder can access treatment. They hope this page will help others avoid what happened to their son.
Our hearts go out to Steven’s family and all who loved him.
