Recovery Hero Brandon
My name is Brandon Brown, and I have been in recovery for 5 years. The last 5 years have been amazing. I got married 3 years ago, became a minister 3 years ago, bought a house 2 years ago, and have traveled all over the West Coast helping others and doing community outreach work with those facing addictions, homelessness, suicide, human trafficking, gangs, and at-risk youth.
I was stuck in addiction for 24 years of my life. I have re-connected with my oldest daughter after 13 years of trying to find her, and after I got sober, I finally made contact with her 3 years ago. Now we have a relationship and connection, and I got to spend my birthday with her in Arizona last year. I’m from Montana and just moved to Colorado four months ago with my family.
My lowest point was suicide about 9 years ago, and I was drinking and using every day. Now I am a certified peer recovery coach and have been doing community outreach gatherings for 4 years, helping people all over the West Coast. I love my recovery and helping others.
