Addiction is a severe problem. One that is often only spoken about behind closed doors in hushed voices. In the United States alone, the statistics are alarming, and while we would like to think it could never happen to us, almost 21 million Americans have at least one addiction costing them their lives, happiness, and well-being. As the tides turn on transparency, some entrepreneurs and influencers are opening up about their struggles with addiction because they believe no one should go through it alone. Chris Ferry, the founder of the Boca Recovery Center in Florida, understands that the road to recovery involves the support of those who have been there.

Before founding the Boca Recovery Center, Chris Ferry’s life was racked continuously by addiction. In and out of rehab multiple times, Ferry has been sober since 2013, but it wasn’t an easy path. “It takes a support system,” explains Ferry. Armed with the knowledge of his experiences and the sympathy for those who are fighting alone, Ferry started one of the largest support groups on social media for those recovering from addiction. The Clean and Sober: Addiction Recover Support Group Facebook page is the largest of its kind and brings together people from all over the world with one very clear mission – to get sober and to stay that way. This page is giving families support when they have nowhere else to turn.

“Not everyone is fortunate enough to come from communities with places to go for addiction,” explains Ferry. “A lack of support is often why so many people relapse.” While communities are trying their best to create safe havens for recovering addicts, their resources are stretched thin. What Ferry has done is harnessed the power of social media to create a space for recovering addicts regardless of financial status or location.

Clean and Sober brings everyone together in an environment of support, and that is incredibly powerful. Ferry strives to create awareness about addiction while inspiring others with an image of what a life of sobriety looks like. “My words of wisdom for recovering addictions is to find a support group,” states Ferry. “Being sober can be hard, especially if you are alone. We all need a community.” With over 64,000 members, Clean and Sober not only supports those recovering from drug abuse but also offers resources for those suffering through depression, eating disorders, and domestic violence.

A real community in every sense of the word Clean and Sober offers a space to share, a space for support, and a second chance. “I’ve had more than my fair share of chances. It was a hard journey, and I make it my mission every day to connect and build a stronger community through recovery.” Ferry genuinely believes that community is critical to support. If you or a loved one is struggling through addiction, don’t be afraid to reach out and find a support group. Chances are you are not the only one, and a mentor and friend is only one click away.
