Kyle has been through his own struggles with addiction and ended up in Asheville after seeking out additional support for his recovery. He made the official move from Houston, Texas, to the Asheville area with the intention to grow and gain some distance from his home town and the life he’d been living. Throughout his time here, he has learned how to build healthy relationships and live a life dedicated to recovery. For the past 3 years he has worked in the mental health and recovery fields, in the area of direct care within treatment centers and as a Program manager. His mission in life is to use his personal experience, strength, and hope to help others in their struggle with addiction.
Jonathan is a natural born leader with a wide range of experience in diverse avenues of collaboration, from real estate development projects to wireless internet infrastructure design. He has a passion for inspired action, which has propelled him into community outreach and networking. At a time when he was face to face with the destruction of addiction, both through firsthand experience, and in facing the death of a friend, he embarked on a new venture: to build a safe, supportive space for addicts to truly recover. Through lots of planning and logistics, and many synergistic connections, all the cooperative components of this heart-felt endeavor have come together to build an uplifting environment for recovery. Jon is ever-ready to lend a supportive role in any day-to-day operations of the house, and in assisting clients throughout their stay.
Will was raised by a single mother in a small West Virginia town that was one of the areas in the country hit hardest by the opioid crisis. Will was not immune to this life- threatening epidemic. He soon found himself fully addicted and went in and out of addiction treatment for several years. He continually relapsed until he found a sober living home that opened his eyes to how beautiful and rewarding clean living can be. He fully devoted himself to a program of recovery that has transformed his life. Following the 12th step of NA, he felt compelled to be of service in helping other addicts and began working for one of the largest sober homes in the area. Now, with nearly five years clean, Will desired to go a step further and open a new sober home, with all the elements that served his recovery over the years.
