Michelle Martinez

My passion is to turn my life of struggle into a catalyst of hope for men, women and young children that it can get better but we must have faith and we must do the work !! Recovery is an action word and I do my best to live in it daily.

Harry Stern

My passion to help others comes from my own experiences with addiction and my life in long term recovery. I have helped so many men and women kick start their journey.

Through my recovery process I was able to learn, understand and advocate for alternative methods to the recovery model. Knowing how devastating the opioid crisis is, I started doing more research and I began to understand that this could also really help others in the recovery community gain there life back. Through this we have had the gift of seeing hundreds of people’s lives change, people suffering with substance abuse disorders that were not able to put together two days without using drugs or alcohol are now living healthy drug free lives and have a community that loves and supports them with no judgement.
