Levittown man helping others find life in recovery

December 8, 2017 – If you or someone you love is struggling with the disease of addiction, remember that recovery is possible. It isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. A recent story highlights that fact.

The Bucks County Courier Times published on Friday a story about Brian Kaye, a Levittown man who found an unlikely path to life in recovery and is now paying it forward to help those still struggling with the disease of addiction:

How recovery happens is different for everyone, Kaye said, but for him the path was paved with a series of people and steps that guided him. First, Kaye said, he had to accept that he had a problem and reach for help — even when it wasn’t readily available.

Unable to find a bed at a rehabilitation center, Kaye had to detox on his uncle’s couch, where he suffered the painful effects of withdrawal — body aches, night sweats, vomiting and agony that lasted for days. Every day, his uncle called rehabilitation centers, only to be told no beds were available.

Kaye now works as a certified recovery specialist.
