Getting to Know You

Meet Rise Recovery Board Member
Louis Rubiola
General Member of Rubiola Realty & Mortgage

I serve on the Board because of the g ratitude I have for 26 years of recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. Also, I have lost family members and friends to this cunning and baffling disease and if I can help even one young person because of my efforts on the board of Rise Recovery, I will be able to stand tall in front of my maker at the appropriate time and say that because of Your Grace in my life, I have been able to give back and help one of your precious little ones live a clean, prosperous and sober life.
