My Name is Candice Lock and This is My Story

“I suffered tremendous loss in the loss of my husband and then the death of my son. My journey since then has been hard due to the decision making (or lack thereof) process. I had never experienced loss or pain such as that and had none of the tools I needed. Which led to my drug-use, incarceration and being shot. During this time I had developed an F-it attitude.” 

“Meeting Dr. Hamm/ Dr. Blackstock has helped me to gain sobriety and they have stuck by me. When I relapsed repeatedly, they never stopped caring or judged me based on my addiction and once I began to really take my sobriety seriously, they continued to go above and beyond for me. 

Ross Nagler (Case Manager) has introduced me to Mr. Steve Nash (co-owner of Advance Memphis) and I have since then started and completed their work-life program and received my forklift certification. I also was able to deal with some core issues that I had been suppressing. The result is a sober, self-sufficient person who is eager and willing to learn new things. So I say thank you to the staff at IAC Associates and Advance Memphis for all the love and support they have given me on my journey.”
