New York's ‘Addiction Angel’ Helps Addicts Cure Their Disease

Only Good TV celebrates National Nurses Day .... now more than ever....

There are angels all around us, like Alicia Reddy. This selfless woman, also known as Addiction Angel, wants nothing more than to help those struggling with the disease of addiction. She is a RN and a drug interventionist. Her passion with helping others started when 3 family members struggled with addiction and she was there to help.

Since she established Addiction Angel, she has given herself a name and given others life. When not working as a nurse at Staten Island University Hospital, Alicia is holding interventions or is on the phone-- guiding families and friends who are helping their loved ones fight through addiction.

She works tirelessly to get people the help they need; whether it be personally getting them into rehab or being available to talk anytime they need. She is available 24/7 and helps anyone who calls, even those who have been turned away from other places.

"My three nephews were addicted and now they're clean," she said. "They are my happy ending. I know others can do it too and I want to help them get there."

With all that she has done, it is no surprise she was given a 2016 Staten Island Advance Woman of Achievement award! She is literally an 'Addiction Angel.'
