The Crew Podcast Guests
I was born and raised in Enid, OK. I started using drugs and alcohol when I was 15 which carried on until I got sober at 30. I spent a decade in and out of treatment centers never being able to find a valuable solution that I was willing to listen to. After many failed attempts to stay sober I finally got myself into enough legal trouble that I was sent away for a year to a court ordered facility. There is where I found humility and a willingness to do something different. I dove into the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and found a passion for sponsorship and helping others.
I started working at The Last Resort as an overnight tech. Through the next year and a half I worked my way up to my dream job as Care Coordinator. I get to help facilitate and coordinate aftercare recommendations for the men who complete treatment. I spent so many years taking advantage of my own aftercare recommendations that I feel like it’s my purpose to use my experience to help individuals not take for granted what I did. I have found no greater feeling than watching a man commit to treatment and then achieve the goals they set for themselves post treatment. If I can even have a small part in their success, in helping them achieve their goals, then I know I have done my job to the best of my ability.

“I found that I had a passion for, and a purpose in, guiding others through the recovery process. There is no greater joy than helping people heal, in helping them find happiness. I wanted to make it my life’s central focus.”
Father Bill is an Episcopal priest in recovery from addiction since 1972. He is a noted speaker and has held many executive roles in addiction treatment centers. Father Bill is still active in several 12-Step Fellowships. His podcast is Father Bill W. He writes of his current mission: “I have no desire to leave them, to create a substitute for them, or to change them in any way. Along with a small but growing group of Christians and spiritual seekers in recovery, we are focused on helping women and men discover the AA Pioneer’s lost practice of Two Way Prayer. It has brought many of us into a new, and often more intimate, relationship with God. We hope it may do the same for you”
