About the Author
Peter A. Butkins was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1945. He received his elementary and secondary education there. In 1967, he was awarded a B.S. in English from Niagara University. Upon graduation, he taught high school English and was employed as a guidance counselor. At the time, he also was attending Niagara University pursuing a master's degree. He earned an M.S. in guidance and counseling in June of 1969. Peter was employed at the latter until 1970 when he elected to continue his counseling career at the Niagara Falls Community Mental Health Center. After one and one-half years, he was recruited to supervise the suicide prevention component of the Niagara Falls Drug and Alcohol agency. In 1975, he accepted a position in Syracuse, New York, working for a Federal Narcotics and Drug Research Grant. His work there involved developing and funding crisis centers for communities at risk in New York. In 1979, Dr. Butkins relocated to Orlando, Florida, where he worked for two years as a guidance counselor and teacher. In 1981, he began Quest Counseling Centre, his private practice. Licensed in marriage and family counseling, he has successfully practiced in both these areas since then. Freedom Quest is his non-profit agency which delivers drug and alcohol abuse counseling services to families and individuals. He also conducts training workshops and other forms of consultation for a variety of agencies and businesses.
