Recovery Ambassador

Meet Our Alumnus, Joseph

Joseph Herycyk graduated from addiction treatment at The Recovery Village Columbus. He answered some questions for us about his time with us, hoping to convince others to seek the help they need: 

When did you realize you wanted to get treatment?

“In March of 2023.” 

Why did you (or your loved one) choose our treatment center?

“It was the closest.” 

What part of your treatment was the most helpful?

“The mindfulness training was the most helpful.” 

Who made the biggest difference in your recovery journey?

“Me. I understood my recovery was up to me.” 

How has your life changed after getting treatment at our center?

“Night and day — it seemed like I have been asleep many years, then woke up seeing life for the first time.”

How would you encourage someone else who needs treatment?

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”
