Brandon Chartier lost everything he cherished to the “demons” of his addiction. Now strong and sober, he’s committed to helping others find their own path to recovery.
Chartier, 36, is part of Harbor Homes Recovery Corps, a new AmeriCorps program targeting the state’s opioid epidemic. He’s one of about 20 individuals who will spend the next year serving as recovery coaches at non-profit organizations from Nashua to Berlin.
“If you have somebody helping you and supporting you, it makes this process a lot better and you have a better chance of success,” said Chartier, who lives in Concord.
