Sal Michael Federico
Mike didn’t take the usual path in life. He starting using alcohol and drugs at young age, and in the process, missed out on a normal childhood. After a lengthy 19 year battle with addiction, Mike now has over four years clean. It took an outpatient program and help from 12-step program to give Mike a second chance at life; and he has taken full advantage of this opportunity.
Since getting clean, Mike has achieved an Associates Degree in Sociology, and is currently working on a BA in the same field at California State University of Channel Islands. He has aspirations of getting a Masters in Sports Management and a Law Degree. As for being a Residential Advisor at Alo House, Mike feels that it is a great way to give back to the recovery community. He feels he owes the recovery community for saving him from a life of addiction, and this position helps him repay that debt.
