I am 30 years old, I was born and raised in Ohio. I was a student athlete until multiple injuries made me stop. At the time I was prescribed pain meds and thus started my road to addiction. I went through countless rehab attempts until I found my way to California and my personal road to recovery. I work in treatment to help other overcome the same situation I was in. My personal struggles help me understand and relate to the patients. Watching people overcome addiction and turn their life around is an amazing experience and I'm privileged to be a part of it.

Residential Care Technician
Hello my name is Dustin, I am 29 years old and am originally from Kalamazoo Michigan. I have been sober now for 14 months and it is a true blessing/miracle to say the least. I enjoy customizing cars and hanging out with my family and friends during my free time. I owe a lot of thanks to R&R Recovery for helping aid me back to the person I have become today. Currently I work as a detox technician for R&R Recovery and enjoy helping people through the same struggles that I once faced myself. My favorite part about my job is all the wonderful relationships I get to build along the way as well as working with amazing co-workers that truly care and have a passion for recovery. R&R is a perfect place to get sober if you enjoy hospitality and are interested in a place that truly cares about you on a personal level and your recovery from drug/alcohol addiction. We reside in Huntington Beach, one of the most beautiful beach cities in Southern CA with the beach just steps away.
