Damian is a Certified Substance Use Disorder Counselor and a well-known Recovery Advocate. He has established himself in the recovery community as someone who will bend over backwards to help people get and stay sober. Because of his dedication and love for helping people in recovery Damian received the Recovery Ambassador Award from the Department of Substance Abuse and Mental Health.
Damian is in long term recovery from drugs and alcohol and knows about the hopeless feeling of being in active addiction. He spent a good portion of his life in and out of jails and prisons. It wasn’t till after he got sober that he began to fully realize the traumatic effects his lifestyle had on the people that loved and cared for him. One of his greatest rewards of being sober is knowing that his parents are at peace knowing that he is safe in the arms of recovery. He hopes that by starting Inspiro he can aid families and individuals all over the world in finding recovery.
Damian also contributes on a legislative level where he advocates for laws that could help aid the recovery movement and that could help people that suffer from addictions get the help they need.
He is also a well-recognized recovery speaker. He has spoken at treatment centers, schools, prison, rally’s, community events, fund-raisers, news programing and has been featured in documentaries and published articles.
Damian’s goal in life is to dedicate his life to helping others recover from drug and alcohol addiction on a grand scale and he hopes to see a day come that addiction will no longer affect every household in our communities and a time come when it is no longer an epidemic in our world.
