Javier Soto

Hi!! My name is Javier.  I am a Recovery Support Services Manager at Communities for Recovery.  I have been a part of this amazing organization since July 2014. I am a person in long term recovery and what that means to me is living life to my fullest potential without the need to use alcohol or other substances since October 2012.  The lovely staff from Williamson County DWI drug court saved my life and allowed me to grow into the person I am today.  Today I am a better son, brother, husband, father, friend, godfather, peer recovery coach, and human being because of my recovery.   I have rekindled with my wellness throughout my recovery journey and got back to loving myself by running and exercising.  I always love a great conversation!! – Javier Soto, Program Services Manager at Communities for Recovery
