CEO, Essential Recovery LLC
Recovery has been the biggest part of my life for the last 7 years. I have dedicated my life to a path of clean and sober living that has given me the foundation for which I stand. I have spent my life in the hospitality industry guiding and leading colleagues in the restaurant business both as an owner operator and or in an executive capacity. I have operated extremely high volume businesses with as many as 700 employees at a time. However, I have decided that the restaurant and bar business is not a business for my family and me. A business where I can help people along the road to recovery in dealing with their addictions is where my passion lies. I have gone through death of family and friends, bankruptcy, loss of our home, loss of my marriage and everything I loved the most in this world, all due to my disease. The biggest single gift that I have been given is a relationship with my higher power that has got me through all of these situations sober.
The single greatest thing I can now do with my life is give it away by helping people who suffer from my same affliction, and help restore their lives to one of hope and happiness. I have sober coached, worked in admissions and placed individuals in recovery centers on a part time basis in years past and have now decided to make it my full-time career. If I can make a positive difference in people’s lives, then that is where I need to be.
COO, Essential Recovery LLC
I wasn’t always clean and sober. In the very beginning of my recovery, many of the resources that are available to the public today didn’t exist. Luckily for me I had a very supportive foundation made of friends and family committed to my success. With their help and love, I have been able to collect multiple years of recovery. As a result of this new found recovery, I have decided to make it a personal mission to make the process of reaching out for help and receiving treatment as simple as possible.
There is a certain level of empathy that goes along with passion. Not only do I want the best for people but I genuinely understand the pain and fear that comes along with addiction/alcoholism. Everything about our business is personal. We are in the process of saving lives.
Our mission is to be the ultimate resource for anyone battling addiction, alcoholism, and mental health. Essential Recovery works relentlessly to find a solution for your individual needs. Love, tolerance, integrity, respect and patience are the values our company is built upon. We have a solution for every client and we will never turn anyone away.
