My name is James Lucas Booth and I go by Luke. If you are reading this, we have Mountainside in common. Mountainside was a life changer for me, and I am more than happy and proud to share some highlights since my sobriety with you.
I have been sober for two and a half years and during this time I have made important changes in my career. After I left Mountainside, I went to Seacrest Recovery Center for four months. Once I got a year clean, they offered me a position at the center as a Tech. I was the first alumni that was offered a position there, and I was more than happy to have this job. After working with techs from both recovery programs, I saw how much they enjoyed their jobs and the difference that they could make in their client’s life. I always wanted to have a career where I could make a difference and be passionate about it too.
I have been working at Seacrest for over a year and now I am not only a tech but also a fulltime clinical intern. I have recently returned to school to earn my CADC license.
My recovery journey began at Mountainside, and it also planted the idea of working in the field of recovery. I am very grateful for my experience at Mountainside and their recovery coach that guided me to a sober life.
