Founded by Brett Johnson, who spent many years in addiction and then in recovery. During Brett’s journey to healing, he experienced arduous gaps in a system that leaves a lack of support in an addict’s recovery.
Brett couldn’t turn away from the struggle so many of his fellow recovering addicts had with repeated relapsing and lack of guidance. He compares the typical recovery process as sending newly blind people into the world and telling them not to walk into a wall.
