Hi my name is Paul and I am a person in long term recovery, what that means to me is that I have not actively participated in using any mind altering substances since December of 1999. Today I am a husband, brother and uncle. I have fun meeting new people and trying new restaurants. I enjoy meditating and spending quality time with my family.

Peer to Peer Specialist


 My name is Amanda Ippolito and I am a person living in long term recovery, what that means for me is that I have not used mind altering substances or alcohol in over 8 years and I have learned how to be less anxious. I live my recovery out loud because I believe that recovery works and everyone can recover by seeking their own recovery pathways. I enjoy fellowship with like minded people, good food, and family time. Besides working with others, my passion is to travel the world. Since becoming sober, I have visited Canada Italy, France, Mexico, the Virgin Islands and several cities in the United States. I am headed to Sweden, Amsterdam and London this summer! I am living my dreams through my recovery.
