Jeff's Story

“I came into this thinking that I was a very functional person,” Jeff says, but as he describes his experience over the last few years, he admits he had problems and needed help.

In 2014, he left a lucrative career in IT and went on a road trip across the U.S. with his daughter. “I got burned out,” he says. “So I spent my savings on a vacation and had a great time.” But when the trip was over, he still felt exhausted, and he spent most of his time and money drinking alcohol.
