In America’s Heroes Group podcast, episode 364, Kevin Rumley shares his story about his battle with addiction. Kevin Rumley is a US Marine Corps Purple Heart Recipient, Combat Veteran, and Program Director for the Buncombe County Veterans Treatment Court in Asheville, North Carolina.
“I lost everything and everyone I love because of my addiction,” Rumley recalled. “One day at a time, here I am 11 years later, and I have a renewed sense of hope and a renewed sense of purpose. A big part of that is giving back to the Veterans that are struggling like I was when I first got out.”
The Veterans Treatment Court utilizes a non-adversarial, team approach to providing services and support to veterans facing felony charges. This treatment modality strives to prevent recidivism and promote accountability and recovery by diverting participants through a multi-phase recovery/treatment program.
America Heroes Group’s mission is to honor and respect the relentless commitment, ultimate sacrifice, and unwavering dedication of our retired Veterans and Active Service members thereby empowering and transforming their lives as they age in place and reacclimate back into society through identifying and positioning local and national communities as military friendly.
