Admissions & Marketing Specialist
Since his injury and subsequent medical discharge from the Marine Corp in 2004, Daniel Hollenbeck found himself addicted to prescription medication and alcohol. Struggling to move forward, Daniel began to spiral into a war with himself. In no time at all, he found that his desire for a productive life was a casualty of his disease. Daniel had realized that he was lacking the discipline and the tools to obtain lasting sobriety.
After multiple attempts at self-propulsion, Daniel surrendered himself to a 12-step program. He obtained a sponsor and began attending the suggested daily 12-step meetings, working the steps, and got heavily involved in service work with young alcoholics in the Orange County that had given him another chance at victory in his life. After seeing the benefits of thoroughly working a 12-step program, he started reaching out and working in recovery in the Orange County area.
Daniel is from Knoxville, TN but currently resides in the beautiful Orange County are. This is where he enjoys the serenity of his sobriety and the closeness he feels with the community that gives him the daily chance to help others like himself. He works in the outreach program for Hotel California by the Sea. He works diligently in the field with the purpose to better provide lasting stepping stones to those who are struggling with alcoholism and the depths of the disease.
