In this episode, Brady Kuan interviews Jake Knighton and Paul Price. All three of these individuals first came to Brighton Recovery for treatment and, after a year or two of sobriety, all three now work for Brighton.

This can be an overwhelming goal because it’s not always clear where to start or how to proceed. Brady, Jake, and Paul give insider tips on how they accomplished this goal.
