My addiction made me a terrible employee. I’m in recovery – but how can I find a new job with such poor references?

Q: I’m a recovering addict who moved to Alaska three years ago for a dream job, but didn’t leave my problem drinking behind. I blew deadlines, behaved inappropriately at work events and was a terrible employee. My boss kindly let me resign instead of firing me.
