Ryan was raised in Hudson, NH by a wonderful family.
No one would have suspected that Substance Abuse Disorder would shape his life. All activities, hobbies, and life ambitions had fell victim to Ryan’s struggle with SUD. Later he found himself in many addiction treatment centers over the years trying to achieve lasting sobriety.

His goal is to help them find the freedom and happiness they seek through recovery from drug and alcohol addiction that he has found. Ryan believes completely in treating SUD by treating the Mind, Body, and Spirit.
