John is living proof that hard work and determination pay off. John joined the Cornerstone Recovery Center team in 2017. Throughout his career, John has worn many hats, including: Residential Housing Supervisor, Clinician, Supervising Recovery Coach, Program Director, and Director of Alumni Services for one of the largest companies in the industry.
In 2014, John was awarded Recovery Advocate of the Year by Broward County, Florida. Throughout his career, John has helped thousands of people overcome their struggles with addiction and mental health disorders and find a new life in recovery. John is tireless and his devotion to Cornerstone Recovery Center is a tremendous asset to the clients we treat. John brings a level of professionalism and motivation that is congruent with the vision of Cornerstone Recovery Center. At Cornerstone, John will be a leader for a number of new initiatives that will strengthen and grow our principled foundation.
Since his own early days in his recovery, John has been known in recovery circles as “Relentless” – a nickname that has stuck! Often when clients want to leave treatment, they only need to get through one more day before they have a change of heart. Knowing how critical each day is, John goes to great lengths to make sure clients don’t give up on themselves. John embodies the same principles that he tries to instill in his clients, namely humility, gratitude, motivation, sincerity and helpfulness. As he has grown, what drives John is his personal understanding of the disease of addiction and his deep concern for the clients we treat.
