As part of our continued response to the growing demand for our services, we're proud to introduce you to Ian Cid Descallar (MN, RN), an Addictions Counsellor and the latest addition to Lifeline's clinical team.

What made you want to get into this line of work?

I just want to help. I find happiness and passion in seeing people recover.

You’re new to Montreal - where are you from?

I come from the City of Cangaya de Oro. It’s in the southern part of the Philippines, where addiction is a very serious concern.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

I play with my kids. That’s what I love to do.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

When I see that my clients are able to understand the whole process of recovery, that it takes time.
