“I would still be in prison right now if I hadn’t [entered treatment]. Having the opportunity to seek help over a prison sentence “made me decide to give recovery a chance”, Dylan said.

“Within 30 days of putting effort into my recovery, and thinking I could do this, it changed my perspective and gave me hope. It really gave me hope that things didn’t have to be that way forever. ”

Almost a decade in recovery later, Dylan is a program manager for Bridges to Change and focuses on using his experiences to help other people find hope in their recovery journey.

“I see myself in a lot of people I work with, and I like the community at Bridges to Change. The team we work with, it’s all peers with shared lived experiences of what we’ve been through,” he said. “Knowing we can all give back and share that experience and give hope to people that come in, is powerful to me.”
