Jon Daily – Recovery Happens Founders Legacy
Jon Daily (1970 – 2017) LCSW, CADAAC II, was passionate about helping others break free from chemical dependency and their addiction to intoxication. His dedication to this cause was rooted from his own early addiction, which led to time in California Youth Authorities, group home placements, and destructive relational patterns.
Jon was in recovery for over 20 years and committed himself to helping others reach the same success. Over 10 years ago he opened Recovery Happens Counseling Services, an outpatient drug and substance abuse treatment center, which specializes in both adolescent and adult treatment.
His advocacy in the community, as well as policy work has brought him to the front lines of this work. He was the recipient of many awards including: Harold Cole Award, Miracle Award, Sacramento Valley Psychological Association Community Award, The Piece of the Puzzle Award, and the CCAPP VIP Award.
In 2010 Jon was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and given 18 months to live. His commitment to health and wellness exceeded every doctor’s expectations. However, in October of 2017 Jon lost his battle to cancer, yet he won the war over his addiction.
Jon’s desire was that his work would continue on through Recovery Happens Counseling Services, and all casualties in America’s war on drugs would find healing, peace, and wellness – just as he did.
The Recovery Happens Rehab Services team is devoted to seeing his legacy live on as we continue to provide high-quality treatment, training, and advocacy.
