What others are saying... “There are few people in the recovery movement who have done more to help alcoholics and drug addicts than Dr. John Mooney and his lovely wife, Dot Mooney. After finding sobriety for themselves, they dedicated the rest of their lives to helping others get well. In 1976, NCADD was honored to have Dr. Mooney as part of ‘Operation Understanding’ to reduce the stigma of alcoholism. Thank you Bill Borchert for telling their powerful and inspirational story. It is long overdue.”
Robert J. Lindsey, President/CEO National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD)
“Recovery is the road back to integrity and dignity, to self-love and the love of others. “When Two Loves Collide” is an incredibly inspirational story and a touching and beautiful legacy.”
