Brandon Lewis was an IV drug user for over 6 years before he got sober in 2015. In his recovery, some of the tools he has found useful are both therapy and psychiatry to address the underlying issues that drove his substance use disorder.
Brandon is a talented musician and has been playing guitar and singing since he was 12 years old. He feels using music is a way for him to connect with others and is currently enrolled in classes for music to further his passion.
He came to Alo House because he respects the approach used here. His personal experience has taught him that clinical and medical intervention are often imperative to be used as an intervention for those with maladapted coping mechanisms. Brandon says that, “Addressing active mental illness and the underlying issues to substance use is pivotal in preventing regressive and damaging compulsions- Alo House covers all of that and more.”
