Matt has a deep and personal understanding of addiction and the recovery process. Matt began his recovery journey in May 2014 after an 18-year battle with addiction. Like many of ARC’s employees and management, he personally received long-term care from the company. During his time as a client at ARC, he completed an internship with the company. This opportunity convinced him to leave the practice of physical therapy and to pursue a career in addiction treatment with ARC.
