Dottie Moffitt is a licensed drug and alcohol counselor in NH. Dottie previously worked providing inpatient therapy for men with substance use disorder. She currently works at Counseling Associates where she does individual therapy with men and women with a SUD, runs relapse prevention groups and MAT groups through Better Life Partners. Dottie became interested in becoming a therapist when she was a teacher at the Woodstock Correction Facility. Her interest in becoming a substance use disorder counselor came when one of her daughter’s classmates died due to an overdose in 2010. She feels this was the catalyst that opened her eyes to what was happening in the area she grew up in and how prevalent opioid use had become. This sparked in her a desire to make a difference. Dottie approaches her work with passion, pride and honor. Dottie is one of the founding members of the Hartford, VT Overdose Awareness Candlelight Vigil that occurs every August 31st. The vigil is important to her because she knows well the pain of loss due to overdose and wants to ensure that those who have passed away are honored yearly at the vigil. Dottie firmly believes their names deserve to be heard and that community education is imperative in order to end the shame and stigma that surrounds addiction to all substances because as long as shame and stigma remain there will always be barriers to seeking help.
