Addict II Athlete
We are a group of friends, peers and family members who all have one thing in common…addiction. By knowing an addict, having been affected by addiction or being in recovery ourselves. We have come together to help one another with the outcome from all angles of addiction. We have found a new way of life, by exercising and becoming physically fit. This has become a pivot point in our new way of life.
We are here to carry the message of recovery and change the outlook of the word… addict. To show that there is hope for every individual affected by addiction out there. We have adopted the philosophy of Erase and Replace, defined as; erasing our addiction and replacing it with something of greater value (ie. friendship, family, respect and compassion).
Our goal is to spread the message of recovery to the addict and family of the addict who still struggle with addiction and to show that we have discovered a more excellent way to live.
Blu Robinson is a Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC) and a Substance Use Disorder Counselor (SUDC) and the founder of Addict to Athlete . He has specialized in addiction treatment for over a decade and is passionate about helping others.
Blu has overcome addiction in his own life and replaced it with things of greater value. When first starting out his new way of life Blu went and purchased a mountain bike to simply get rid of the money he was accumulating to lessen the chance of spending it on substances. It sat unused for a short time then as an impulse he got on and went for a ride. Increasing his time on the bike and discovering new trails he ran into others who shared the same passion in outdoor activity. That laid the foundation on how athletics played a major role in him establishing and maintaining a firm grip on sobriety.
