About

Jake has been in recovery since April of 2008. A writer, educator, voracious reader, meditator, and lover of the outdoors, he created The Hope Fiend out of a desire to build community, share experience, and give hope to those who need it.

The Hope Fiend exists as a broad platform where individuals can access thoughtful writing about life in recovery. While many find recovery through 12-step programs, Jake believes there are many avenues to wellness, and he strives to share content that will appeal to a wide variety of people. Despite the door we come through, as people in recovery, we share much in common. No matter your path, or lack thereof, you are welcome here.
