A Letter From A Father
“My 30-year-old son Matt and I, as a single Dad, have lived with and around every ugly, sad, chaotic, illogical, sometimes morbidly humorous, heart-breaking and dysfunctional aspect of drug and alcohol addiction for years. We lived it, survived it and Matt has now since recovered for nearly 4 years. We learned the hard way, from ground zero, what drug addiction was about and then, most importantly, the most effective way to recover from it. Armed with this hard-earned knowledge of drug addiction and recovery, we then dedicated ourselves to helping others rebuild their lives by starting Spirit Mountain Recovery literally from the ground up. It’s our passion and our mission now to carry a message of hope.”
