1013. Life as a Chameleon, A Story of Addiction & Recovery
Blake E. Cohen
“The thing that excites me the most about what I’m doing (as a Certified Addiction Professional) is I get to travel the country, talk to people from all walks of life, and educate them on the disease of addiction. And not just educate them on how it’s affecting the country, but educate them on what we can do to help prevent it for future generations─prevent it in the workplace, prevent it at home. And to really foster an environment that is warm and connecting, to combat people’s needs to use substances.”
Blake Cohen began his career in the field of substance abuse treatment in his home state of Florida, fueled by passion and gratitude for having overcome his own battles with addiction. His two-fold goal is to combat the stigma surrounding the disease of addiction and educate those who are in the dark about it. He is the proud co-founder of Next Level Recovery Association, is the author of “I Love You More, Short Stories of Addiction, Recovery and Loss from the Family’s Perspective,” and the host of The Overcoming Adversity podcast. He completed his bachelor’s degree in psychology at Florida Atlantic University and earned a state certification as an Addictions Professional to better assist those struggling with substance use disorders. Blake is currently earning his Master’s degree.
