About the Founder
I, the founder, Mark, am a man in long-term recovery from addiction and alcoholism that began at an early age. Through countless attempts and various methods, I found lasting recovery on December 5th 2011 through the 12-steps. Part of my journey was the need for sober living after inpatient treatment. Though I had been through many inpatient treatment centers of varying lengths, the missing link proved to be putting all of the treatment in action in real life with the accountability of a recovery house.
On January 20th 2019, my father Dan passed away. Being a hard worker and smart with his earnings, he left my siblings and I some inheritance, which allowed me to start the DB House. It is actually the reason for the name DB House-to memorialize my dad. Though never suffering from addiction, he along with the rest of my family dealt with mine for years and I'm eternally grateful for their help. Without them, I may not have made it.
I try to bring my recovery experience to everyone at DB House. I go to meetings, do literature studies, and help guys connect to a fellowship in 12-step meetings. My hope is that everyone that passes through DB House finds the solution of long-term recovery that I and millions of others have found. There is a solution and we DO RECOVER!
