William was born and raised in Recovery In Tune’s hometown of Davie, Florida. After a long battle with addiction to opiates and prescription drugs during his teenage years and early 20s, William went through some of Florida’s state-funded treatment programs. After two episodes of treatment, he started living a clean life in February 2014, helped by the NA community in south Florida and his desire and willingness to follow a program and change his life.
William began working in the treatment field as a house manager for a sober living home. This allowed him to start to fulfill what he sees as his destiny, helping others in any way he could through their struggles that he went through himself and overcame. His journey continued, and through his compassion, ethical standards and care for the needy, he evolved in the field and earned the opportunity to grow through a position in the admissions department at White Sands Treatment Center. He maintained this position for over a year.
Another opportunity came his way when Delphi Health Group offered him a position in the admissions department, which he took and evolved in for over a year. Through a personal relationship with Recovery In Tune’s director of community outreach, Jarret Stone, William accepted an offer from Recovery In Tune as community outreach coordinator in October 2016. Since then he has grown into his role as Director of Business Development and has become a vital part of the Recovery In Tune staff, using his personal and professional experience and knowledge to help and guide those in the program and educate the community about the program.
