Getting to Know You
Meet Rise Recovery Board Member
W. Carroll Jackson
Senior Vice President - Morgan Stanley
I serve on the board of Rise Recovery because our daughter suffered with the disease of addiction. Because of Rise Recovery, she has been sober for over two and a half years and is now working on a degree in family counseling. I learned in the early stages of her addiction that this is a neurological disease that impacts fully 10% of the population and is in almost all families. Few people know where to go for help and often feel the shame of even discussing the problem. Recovery takes the entire family and Rise Recovery provides no cost services not only to the addict but their family as well. My mission is to get people to understand that this is a disease and needs to be treated as a disease and not just kids who made bad decisions. By helping kids when they first face drug or alcohol abuse issues we can help them turn their lives around and learn to be productive members of society.
