Jason Young, Behavioral Health Technician
My name is Jason Young. I am 37 years old and I am a behavioral health technician at Gravity Treatment Centers. I am in recovery myself and currently have 1 year and 5 months clean. I grew up in the Coachella Valley and I am a graduate of Indio High School. Along with working at Gravity, I also am enrolled in school. I am working on completing my pre-requisites for becoming an RN.
I am a firm believer in the 12 step recovery process. I believe it saved my life. That is why I chose to get into this business of helping people recover from drug and alcohol abuse. I know what it is like to be scared and confused coming into a treatment setting and having to completely let go of what I thought life was. Prior to working in recovery, I held many jobs, mainly construction based.
However, trying to stay clean in a business that is packed with drinking and drug use was practically impossible for me. Today I am part of a great team that genuinely cares about helping people find themselves again through recovery. I truly love what I do and the person I have become. I hope to share this gift that was so freely given to me with newcomers.
