One From the Heart –
APRIL 28, 2018 – As a teen he struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. Now nearly a decade later, Chris Reed devotes much of his time to helping others get clean. He also came up with a creative way to serve younger members in recovery. Reed is a founding member of New Directions Addiction and Recovery Services. He and his team work to support victims in recovery by offering treatment services, housing and even a little fun.
In his early days of recovery, friends would often come to hang out at the warehouse Reed leased for his construction business. With sometimes dozens of people showing up, Reed began to recognize the need for young people to socialize in a drug-free environment.
