BJ Carpenter

Have you experienced enough pain to make you want to give in?

Do you feel you are in control of your chemical of choice? Or have you reached an end of yourself?

Most, if not all, your relationships have either been damaged or negatively affected.

Shame, guilt, and remorse are your constant companions – they never shut up.

Hopelessness seeps in, taking over.

Cross the great divide of deciding.

Decide to change… for the better.

You’ve tried before. Swore you were done! Right?

How many times have you “stopped” for the last time?

You’ve gone deeper into a pit, or is it now more like a bottomless trench?

When your mind begins to clear, pain becomes huge again.

You are not damaged goods, and it is not too late!

How do we know? Because you’re still alive and reading this!

We are not morbid.

I lost a sister and my mother to chemical overdose. Two close, close family members died from drug overdoses.

I know the depths of hopelessness and helplessness…

…and I also know there’s hope!

I carry a depth of lived experience. I’m a former user and now clean and sober.

You need a Freedom Fighter to help you in your journey!

I believe I am uniquely positioned to help you!

Ours is a judgment-free zone.

I’ll help you explore your past and present in non-shaming and non-blaming ways.

Seeking to understand your history and the good reasons you want to change, I’ll help you zero in on specific issues that keep tripping you up.

About Me

Video not optimized for mobile devices. View on a laptop or desktop.

Life was hard growing up with an angry dad.

I used every type of alcohol and drug known to man and destroyed my first life in doing so.

But I was given a second chance at life.

My faith in God, my wife, and my family are my top priorities.

God comes first, then my wife.

We have a blended family, and we have three children together with another on the way.

My Life’s Mission

I want to give hope to the hopeless and helpless.

On July 29, 2011, I entered treatment for the very last time.

Now I’m in treatment every day as a licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) and the Director of
Men’s Recovery at The Nehemiah House in Little Rock.

I know what it’s like to try and stop using drugs and alcohol and fail repeatedly. I also know what it takes to change a drug or alcohol-filled life.

My life changed for the better.

It would not be a stretch to say I’ve shared my strength, hope, and experience with over one thousand men and women.

Fun Facts About Me

I love camping, hunting, and fishing.

I love the outdoors and fresh air; God’s peace-filled creation.

The dog I put up with is a young Boston Terrier named Tater. She’s a great girl, and I love her.
