Stick with the Winners –
Brandon Welsh was born in 1987 in Redwood City, CA, the halfway point between Silicon Valley and the City of San Francisco. Brandon offers a vast skill-set applicable in business, however he is much more than just his professional capability. He is a humble, inspiring, driven and admirable individual as his personal background dealing with substance abuse, chemical dependency, addiction and professional services for substance abuse treatment is what led him to start Recovhub. He noticed how difficult it was for individuals to find and obtain professional services for substance abuse treatment and how outdate the business aspect was in a $35 Billion dollar a year industry. Brandon has now founded Recovhub which is a nationwide database and listing directory of treatment facilities, all within a single source allowing direct connection to each provider of services that an individual chooses.
