My name is Dion Lovallo I’m 28 years old and I have been clean and sober since November 15th, 2013. My addiction with alcohol and drugs started when I was 13 years old. I knew I needed help early on but wasn’t ready to accept the fact I was suffering from substance use disorder. My addiction resulted in me being arrested, losing everything and also not be able to finish high school. I believe a recovery high school would benefit our community because someone like me would of had a chance to finish high school and possibly go on to college. I was lucky enough to find recovery at age 22. Since finding recovery I have helped 100s of people with my story, I got married and opened Carolina Center for Recovery.
