Jack Petti comes from a unique background, having struggled with addiction from the very early age of 12 years old. Addiction grabbed hold of Jack early on as he discovered that drugs and alcohol provided an escape for him, enabling him to numb negative feelings or emotions. With a tough upbringing in a family of ten siblings and a lack of family stability, Jack grew up getting into quite a bit of trouble as his addiction rapidly progressed. Jack struggled with substance abuse while cycling in and out of boarding schools, wilderness programs and treatment centers for seven years before reaching bottom. At the age of 19, after years of living in self will, demonstrating extremely destructive behavior and shutting out everyone from his life, Jack came to the realization that he could no longer continue living the way he had been. He entered himself in a long-term treatment program in California with hopes of developing a better manner of living. Jack spent more than a year going through all levels of treatment programming and established a solid foundation for recovery. He has used his story to help individuals struggling with the same problems he once struggled with. Jack now works in recovery, taking advantage of this platform to share his story, experience, strength and hope with young adults fighting to break free of the same seemingly hopeless state of despair he once knew all too well.

These practices may include meditation, yoga, energy work, massage, and acupuncture. Some holistic therapy programs may even consist of fitness or nutrition therapy.
- Vocational Development
When you recover from drug or alcohol addiction, you may find it difficult to re-enter the workforce. You may especially experience this if you encountered legal problems during your addiction. The vocational development program at Renaissance Recovery can help you break down the barriers of employment and get back on track with your career. If you are unemployed after rehab, you are more likely to relapse back into addiction. The stress of finding a job, combined with the downtime you may have, can lead to a wide range of emotional triggers. For this reason, you must have a means of working when you complete your program. If you try to find a job on your own, it can take you several weeks or months to finally get employment. A vocational development program can get you on track for finding a job and keeping it long-term. At Renaissance Recovery, we do more than help you get your foot in the door. We gear our program toward long-term success in both your recovery and your work.

Renaissance recovery offered me the ability to recreate my life and re-establish my own dignity and manhood. Apart from that, they gave me the opportunity to focus on myself during a difficult time. Walking me through major life events and grievances that I otherwise could not have handled adequately in my active addiction. I highly recommend this program for anyone who’s seeking a life of abundant joy, gratitude and faith. With that being said, hard work is next to be gifted these gifts. God bless.Thomas G.
Absolutely first class operation that puts clients needs above company profits. I personally know several men and woman that have successfully completed the Renaissance Recovery program, which literally saved their lives. If you need help, look no further, these guys are the best.......Scott S.
