Meet the Team!


Lee Heiligman

CEO / Founder

Lee began his journey of recovery after suffering the terrible loss of his elder brother, who struggled with his own demons fighting the disease of addiction. He understood that at such a young age (21) it would be a tough road ahead, but he knew he had to make a crucial change in order to improve the quality his life, and the lives of his family.

After attending a few recovery programs, he felt there was something missing. It wasn’t until after he discovered the 12 steps of Recovery and his higher power, that he was able to fully commit himself and find true recovery. Afterwards he felt something stir inside himself, a calling too loud to ignore. He knew it was his mission to help others, to walk alongside them on their path to recovery.
