Jackson Hurd

Alumni Coordinator 

I went through treatment at Recovery Ways in Summer of 2017 and discovered a life worth living because of the amazing people who helped me early in my sober journey.  The staff at Recovery Ways had such an impact on my life that I made the decision to one day work here and help others struggling with substance abuse and mental health.  I believe everyone has the potential to heal and should have an opportunity to become the best versions of themselves possible.  Two years after treatment, I applied for a Resident Coordinator position at Recovery Ways and was fortunate to get the job in 2019.  Fast forward to 2021, and now I’m here working as an Alumni Coordinator and couldn’t be happier helping people discover a life in recovery.  In my free time, I’m usually doing schoolwork, watching cooking shows (even though I can’t cook), or playing video games with friends online.  I enjoy going to the gym, being social with friends and family and trying new foods.  I love anything spicy!
