The Recovery Connection’s cofounders and local business owners Don and Susan Ekey, have over 15 years experience helping alcoholics and drug addicts achieve sobriety and regain useful lives for themselves and families.

While attending the “Drug Resource Symposium for Indian River County” where panels convened on how to be more effective to challenges facing the community, law enforcement, physicians and treatment centers, they discovered an opportunity to help the Vero Beach community.

Understanding the frustration people suffer finding good local help for themselves, or loved ones especially in crisis, the Recovery Connection was born.

Today the Recovery Connection Team includes a variety of professionals and fellow recovered support staff that has been active in the recovery field with various licenses and certifications, and bringing diverse life and work experiences to better help you.
