A note from Josh:

“I get it. I have lived under addiction’s power. Isolated. Desperately trying to find freedom. Hurting myself and those closest to me. It wasn’t until I started seeing a counselor and sharing my struggles honestly that I began to deeply heal. I was accepted, made sense of addiction, and applied truth to my life in healthy community. I have dedicated my life to share what I know about about addiction and recovery with the world.

It’s not easy to begin. Take that courageous first step and call me today. You don’t have to face these challenges alone.”
