On the Nickel - Doc Watson
Feb. 14, 2011 - PRLog -- On the Nickel: Doc Watson is the powerful memoir of Conrad Watson. It is also proof that recovery is possible, no matter how far down the line one finds himself.

When he was living on skid row on 5th Street in Los Angeles – called the Nickel – Watson turned to the Salvation Army for help. Three years later, the Salvation Army hired Watson, and for the next 22 years he helped others. He began as a counselor for the Harbor Light Center, when he completed its program for his own addiction problem. After moving up through the ranks, “Doc” Watson served at the Harbor Light Center as its Executive Director and Administrator.

The Harbor Light Center has provided licensed and certified residential and outpatient alcohol and drug recovery services to substance abusers for over 50 years. On the Nickel is a truly inspiring must-read.

ON THE NICKEL: DOC WATSON (ISBN: 978-1-60976-961-1) is available on Feb. 8, 2011 for $12.95 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website:
or www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com

He then attended Antioch University, receiving his teaching credential, and was a member of the faculty at Los Angeles City College for four years. In 2006, Watson retired and was encouraged to write his story.
