What truly distinguishes Michael Ferrell is his deep-rooted connection to the world of substance abuse treatment and mental health. After earning his undergraduate degree, he founded a substance abuse treatment center, Northstar Transitions, which has continued to flourish for more than a decade, dedicated to guiding individuals toward recovery. 

National Substance Abuse Prevention Month provides an ideal backdrop to celebrate Michael Ferrell's exceptional commitment to combining these two vital aspects of life - legal defense and substance abuse treatment.
