OUR FOUNDER CHRIS HERREN

Over the past seven years, I have traveled across the country sharing the story of my addiction and recovery. I’ve met many students, athletes, professionals, and others who are at risk for addiction, anxiety, and depression, and other harmful conditions. Many people search for, but cannot find, the resources to help themselves. I was one of those people. To the outside world I looked like I had it all, but inside I was confused, afraid of failure, and anxious about my future. Alcohol and drugs brought relief from those feelings, but very quickly I became dependent and it wasn’t until my addiction progressed that finally, in 2008, I sought help. My life has never been the same since and I am eternally grateful. But I’ve often thought how different it might have been if, before I turned to alcohol and drugs, I could have gone to a place that taught me alternative ways to deal with my internal struggles. That thought has never left me and it has now led me to embark on a new endeavor in my life—the creation of Herren Wellness.

Over the years I have discovered – both personally and through working with thousands of struggling and recovering people – that there is much more to recovery than ceasing the use of substances and unhealthy behaviors. Recovery is a journey of self-discovery and reflection, and in order for it to be sustainable, it needs to include every aspect of a person’s life: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. Developing new tools and a healthy lifestyle is essential, and more emphasis needs to be placed not just on treatment, but also on relapse prevention, and collective education on the disease of addiction. As such, we encourage and support healthy involvement of family and loved ones in a guest’s recovery and wellness plan.

There are an estimated 60 million Americans who misuse substances but have not yet become dependent. There are also 23 million in recovery from addiction who have yet to experience the fullness of the recovery life. Many of these individuals do not need an inpatient rehabilitation program or a hospital stay, but rather a place to recalibrate their lives, adopt a wellness lifestyle, learn techniques to improve their health, and help them realize their full potential.

When we ask you to “Discover Your Why,” we are asking you to search for the answers that will be the key to health and personal fulfillment. Discovering why you are not living your best life is the first step to finding your path to success.  We look forward to supporting you and your loved ones on that journey.
