Dominic GrefsrudAs part of community outreach in the addiction field, I bring a great passion to my role of helping those struggling with substance use disorder. Before my days of helping others find treatment I was once the one who needed help. My addiction started early, at the age of 14, and by adulthood meth and other drugs had taken over my life. I balanced my addiction for a long time, before it came to a head upon the death of my daughter. I went through life lost. I found a brief period of sobriety and started to live normally again. However, I never addressed the root causes of my addiction, and when I relapsed it came back with a vengeance. I lost everything, including my kids and ex-wife, but with the help of others that are like my present self, I was able to change my fate. Once clean, I found myself with the drive to help people who were once like me. I wanted to help people navigate the stepping stones of recovery. I wanted to show everyone that you can change and have a happy life. No matter the evils that you are struggling with today there can be light at the end of the tunnel. I even wanted to show the world that recovery is possible and took part in a docuseries called Road to Recovery. Today you can find me enjoying my hobbies of fixing cars, mudding, and joining jeep clubs. I have been relentless at rebuilding my life back up. I have over 7 years sober and enjoy all the things my hard work has earned me. I am now happily married and working his dream job giving back and providing the crucial support of those going through recovery.
