We love you. You´re probably thinking, " You don´t know me".

But... if people can hate for no reason, we can love for no reason.

Our main goal is to help others. The staff of the Pama Golden Knights Academy is entirely composed of athletes and former athletes. As a result, we saw first hand many of the difficulties faced daily in sports. This includes substance use and abuse its related behaviors, including mental illness.

We know that the excessive consumption of alcohol and other drugs is  present in the hockey world. In addition, many athletes suffer from mental illness such as anxiety and depression, which are often derived from the consumption of these substances or even feelings such as insecurity about how their lives will be after the end of their career.
Keep reading this page with a certainty: we at Pama Golden Knights Academy are with you.

Old ways won’t open new doors. Since I’ve stopped drinking, it has cleared my mind to explore a new chapter in my life and start up a coffee company. I believe that life can get “stale” if you stay numb. If you can make a small change and somehow “shake” up your old routine, you will be able find something to be passionate about in this world. It could be your saving grace!

Addiction and alcoholism grabbed ahold of me at an early age after countless efforts to get sober.

At 21 years old, I finally got it .

My perspective on life has completely changed and more than anything else,  I find  joy in helping other people get sober. Today I own a business, follow through with commitments, and do not struggle to stay sober as long as I follow the steps that are required to remain at peace.
