extends our grateful appreciation for the life and work of Mr. Rudy Hoeltzel
Rudy Hoeltzel was one of Moderation Management's strongest lay members. Although he came to MM later in life, he proved to be both a powerful supporter and advocate for the program. After founding the Morristown MM Meeting (which ran for over 10 years), Rudy helped co-author the Moderation Management workbook "Responsible Drinking"
as one of three authors and the only non-professional voice. Rudy spoke for the "rest of us", the person who arrives at Moderation Management not as a career choice but out of an internal desire to improve their relationship with life. He was a long-time and founding member of the Moderation Management Board of Directors.
Rudy's life work continued with a gentle guide to our Membership: His popular "Steps of Change"
document describing the process of Moderation Management to new participants. It is through the strength, persistence, and wisdom of people like Rudy Hoeltzel that our programs can expand and grow while maintaining the vital connection to those that come to us for help.
