118 - Mark Richards
“Let’s don’t go look at other facilities. Let’s do it our way.” Mark Richards joins us to tell the story of the opening of WASATCH RECOVERY TREATMENT CENTER LLC and intentionally not getting stuck in industry ruts. He talks about being unaware of his brothers' fight with addiction and his own personal experience detoxing after 16 days in an ICU after a brain aneurism. He says that from the beginning, they wanted to provide love and hope, help people deal with their issues instead of just teaching them about addiction, and help people find their voice. One important question that they focus on is, "What's driving the addiction?" Enjoy.
