Paulette Walker knows about perseverance. After 20 years of cocaine abuse, Paulette found herself in a Toronto courtroom facing a judge and a prison sentence. Instead of going to jail, Paulette enrolled with the TDTC and set out on the long road to recovery. Her perseverance in the program paid off. One of our most successful graduates, Paulette is now a chef and was once invited to tell her story at the UN in Vienna.
