K.F., Client

“I’ve been working with Shine A Light since January, 2014. Doug Casper and his company helped save my life. With his leadership and coaching skills, I have recently celebrated five months of continuous sobriety.”

T.H., Client

“Doug was instrumental in helping me through the first difficult weeks of sobriety. He showed me the first steps toward becoming a productive, responsible, happy adult. Nearly two years later, I still give him my highest recommendation.”

T.H., Client

“Doug is highly committed to his recovery and this commitment shows through in his work with others. Doug has an extensive knowledge of the recovery process and real empathy that makes him ideally suited to help people in early recovery. In my personal experience, having Doug there through the recovery process was extremely helpful, and I continue to admire his perspective. There are quite a few lessons I learned from Doug that I still carry with me today.”

Scott R. Client

“Back in December of 2009, I was an in-patient client at a long-term drug & alcohol rehabilitation center in Northern California. Being from the East Coast and arriving to an unfamiliar area (in a less-than-optimal state of mind), I was greeted by Doug at the airport. His professional, friendly, approachable demeanor coupled with a deep understanding of early recovery Beach walkingmade me feel incredibly comfortable. I knew I was in good hands. Throughout my entire four month stay, he went out of his way to make sure that my needs (and all other client’s needs) exceeded expectations. He is a true professional and valuable asset in the recovery world.”

Nick D. Client

“Doug was an intricate part of my early recovery. Doug was very capable of balancing his emotional involvement and objective decision making. Having been a chronic relapser, I have been in and out of various treatments and had numerous counselors. Doug is unique in the sense that he was there for me in my early recovery, and I still would not hesitate to contact him if I needed advice or just someone to talk to. I have very fond memories of Doug and am very grateful he was a part of my road to recovery.”

John C. Client

“My brother relapsed after 15 years of sobriety which led to his losing his job, jeopardizing his marriage, and generally putting his life in a downward spiral. Doug Casper and his Shine a Light staff provided a safe, private, and very professional way of stabilizing a destructive situation. The follow up support and monitoring assured a successful outcome.
I would highly recommend Doug and his service.”
