Jose is the Lead Recovery Advocate at Serenity Springs Recovery Center. He has worked in the recovery field for over seven years, which includes two other addiction treatment centers. Jose really believes in helping clients learn new healthy habits and living an honest, spiritual life based around the 12-steps of recovery.
Jose has a passion for helping others, especially those struggling with alcohol and drugs. This desire to help addicts stems from his own struggles with addiction. Born and raised in New York City, Jose struggled with the disease of addiction from an early age in life. This resulted in many terrible consequences, including eight years of incarceration. After completing his sentence, Jose volunteered for a drug rehabilitation program for 18 months of inpatient treatment. There, he learned more about the 12-step program and how to reintegrate back into society and learn to live sober. Shortly after treatment, he moved to the sunshine state where he began his journey of helping others recover from alcohol and drug abuse.
Jose has a unique understanding and experience that he brings to Serenity Springs Recovery Center. He is a blessing to everyone he encounters and is dedicated to helping others find their purpose while living happy lives, free from addiction. Jose is currently on track to obtain his CAC (Certified Addiction Counselor) license, and is 26 years free of any mind or mood-altering substances as of 2019.
