Bradley Athens

Executive Director

When asked, Bradley will tell you that he has spent almost all of his adult life searching for his purpose, looking outwardly around himself for the answers. It wasn't till he began the search inward that the true meaning of life began to take shape and he would embark on a newfound and lifelong journey. Upon having a mental shift and a psychic change in personality Bradley was overcome with a feeling deep inside that working with others suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction was on his horizon but this still left him unclear with his specific direction and the path he would take. Having personally worked with many alcoholics and addicts and sharing the tools that great men and mentors have passed on to him, Bradley has found true peace in the language of the heart that is one human being working with another.

John Ryan

Operations Director

With years of experience working in the treatment industry John has developed a deep understanding of the struggles one deals with in recovery. Having many attempts at getting sober in the past, John finally came to the realization that he could not have any success in life on his own will. This is why he believes that the most important thing a newly sober person can do is give up trying to manage their own life and start following direction. As a result of this John has an amazing life today and has a passion for sharing with others what has worked in his own life. John believes that living an active and healthy lifestyle is key to maintaining an enjoyable sober life and he is a living example of that.
