Trey uses his experience with addiction in his own family to give readers a better understanding of the effects of substance abuse and how treatment can lead to recovery.
His family has a long history of addiction, and Trey is proud of his family members who have worked hard to reach recovery. His grandfather was in recovery from alcoholism for more than 20 years before he passed away. Trey’s cousins struggled with substance abuse, and his younger brother has been in recovery from a poly-drug use disorder for more than four years.
He has seen firsthand the devastation that addiction inflicts upon a family and is passionate about connecting with other people and families who are dealing with the disease. He hopes to be a reliable resource for people in their time of need and strives to make a difference in the lives of those touched by addiction.
Trey has had the opportunity to work with extraordinary people during his tenure in the addiction treatment industry. He has interviewed former Representative Tony Cuello of California, resort and timeshare mogul David Siegel and former New York Giants wide receiver Bobby Johnson, all of whom are prominent figures in the fight against substance use disorders.
Trey prides himself on his work in the field as he stays connected to people and organizations committed to the eradication of the nation’s drug addiction epidemic. He is also naloxone administration training certified and available to provide Narcan administration training for others.
Trey attended American University in Washington, D.C., where he earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and began his writing career covering high school basketball and lacrosse for a local online publication.
