Dylan is a TEDx Speaker and Addiction Recovery Advocate. His mission is to help individuals and organizations increase engagement in the recovery process and improve long-term outcomes.
Dylan has been in recovery since 2004. During this time, he has been professionally involved in the addiction treatment industry offering various holistic modalities and solution-oriented strategies. He helped build the Mind-Body-Spirit Program, as well as create the Fitness Program, for the nationally acclaimed treatment center, Mountainside, in Northwest CT. He participated in a community development internship at the largest retreat center in North America, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. This helped Dylan to develop a spirituality and community development program for sober houses, treatment centers, and local communities. He believes the power of community is essential in addressing addiction and related challenges. Dylan is a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach and Food Addictions Coach. He also holds certifications in Personal Training, Yoga, and Leadership Development.
He delivers informative and impactful presentations to treatment centers, conferences, and events around the country. He loves to work with organizations who have a desire to challenge the status quo!
Dylan is passionate about helping people who are committed to improving results. By reflecting back purpose and value, he helps individuals to embrace recovery and access ways to live a fun, healthy, authentic lifestyle while pursuing their dreams and goals: moving from dealing with life to enjoying life!
His vision and content transforms culture and inspires hope; using stories, tools, and experiences in the areas of faith, self-expression, and holistic practices; within the synergistic power of community.
It’s no secret that addiction is rampant in our culture today. We have drastically improved in terms of offering resources, and yet, so many still suffer. This is where Dylan can help.
Through exploring and implementing relevant but perhaps unknown solutions, we create meaningful results over time. We find out what’s possible on the other side of despair!
We all want to feel good, experience connection, and have a positive impact. This is how it’s accomplished; through creating a fun, healthy, recovery culture.
Dylan “teaches with his actions” and likes to be an example of what he illustrates. You may find Dylan dancing at noon on a Thursday, doing spoken word at a local museum, or going out ‘sober and solo’ to karaoke. Dylan loves to combine his knowledge and passion to create events and experiences for people in recovery; such as Poetry Slams and Sober Raves. He is well known as an inspirational speaker and gifted facilitator; as well as a spoken word artist.
His purpose is to transform despair into hope and create a common bond through shared meaning.
If you are looking for a professional who creatively addresses the despair and hopelessness of the struggles with addiction, or the recovery process, as well as provides hope, and real solutions, through an empowering shift in perception, then you’ve come to the right place!
