My Ride to the Top – Happy, Healthy, and Wiser than EVER!

Howard W. Needle

Let me introduce myself: I’m Howard Needle, Founder and CEO of Alternative Solutions Media. I care very much about the people who I help recover from addiction and alcohol abuse, because I know what they are going through.

Here is where I reveal the dark side of my past, and where I can tell you how far I’ve come. At last, I am a true believer in karma. As a young man, I made some poor decisions and mistakes. The enormous wealth that accompanied success throughout my career created many temptations and opportunities for lapses in judgement. I made some wrong choices, and paid dearly.

If you Google my name, inevitably a few links to unfortunate events will come up, which I’d just like to forget. We can’t hide our past forever, though. There is no reset button to wipe clean the slate of Howard Needle. Do overs may be impossible, but it’s never too late to correct your life’s trajectory.

Each of us must acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of our past, apologizing to those who have been hurt, and then gradually, calmly move on with life. Never give up, never quit, and don’t ever fall back on failed habits that gave us a little bit of comfort for a lot of complication.

Dare to look in the closet.

Fortunately, my own life traumas were not terminal. Addiction and alcohol abuse has claimed many unfortunate victims, and I couldn’t be more grateful for having been spared their fate. I knew there must be a reason I was given a second chance.

For those working in the field of treatment and recovery, my situation is not uncommon. Some of the most sincere and powerful voices throughout the recovery process come from people that have lived through the struggle, and now stand as examples for others. I am a part of this group, a privilege I don’t take for granted.

In past decades, I paid the price with my career and personal relationships. I made it through some very difficult places. Over the past seven-plus years, I never gave in and never gave up. Today, I am thriving. I’m thankful to have my health, supportive friends, a loving family and of course, my sanity. Google has helped me to open that proverbial closet door and all my ghosts have flown out into view.

It’s a business, but I also care.

Of course this is a business to me. But I could have gone into any number of other businesses. I chose to be a media pro with the expertise to attract calls from people who are suffering through addiction, and direct them to rehabilitation and recovery facilities. Yes, I am doing well as a leading media professional, but I am more concerned about my staff turning calls into admissions at your addiction treatment and recovery facility. Not only has this industry been a constant reminder of my recovery, but it has also helped me to give back to those who were like me in the “old Howard” days.

Every moment of life is precious. Everyone: start living today!

By the grace of God, I’m still here.

Yes, I’ve had a past life and Google is not going to let me forget it. If you are pondering Google’s results and thinking to yourself, “I don’t know….” please understand that seven years ago I began to correct my past mistakes and move ahead with a powerful new mission. Having twenty years of experience in marketing and advertising, today I operate a company that uses national TV and radio advertising to bring a message of recovery into homes across America. Our job is to deliver your facility’s vital message of recovery and treatment to those in need.

I have also surrounded myself with knowledgeable addiction treatment professionals. Our customers will confirm that the Alternative Solutions Media Team delivers highly effective corporate branding solutions and rehab advertising. Does your facility need marketing and national TV advertising? Let me show you how a pay-per-call campaign can help your facility increase its census.

The very first person who answers your phone call will always be the admissions staff at an addiction treatment and recovery facility. Every call goes directly to an admissions counsellor.

What’s next?

As a media firm that makes facilities’ phones ring, Alternative Media Solutions has surpassed my wildest expectations. I have surrounded myself with knowledge and industry experts. Now I’m prepared to move onto Stage 2 of my career. I have dug deep into my soul, and have seen the future. Between April 1 and May 1, we will be launching a new recovery related project on national television. Stay tuned…

I’m Howard Needle, and I don’t ever give up working for my clients. I can start your campaign within 24 hours. Call me today at 561-281-2020.
