I would like to share with you a brief story about a homeless U.S army veteran who recently found a second chance at life moments before he was willing to throw his away.

Below is a local news link to the story from this past November:

I am contacting you on behalf of Apex Recovery. As you can see from the news article above, our founder and lead Mental Health Clinician, Dr. Mathew Bruhin, was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time. Dr. Bruhin was able to talk a homeless U.S army veteran off the ledge of the Coronado bridge moments before that veteran planned on taking his own life.

We at Apex Recovery offered our services to this veteran completely free. We are hoping people might be inspired to contribute to changing this man’s life like we did.

Below is a link to an article we wrote about the deadly relationship between alcohol abuse and suicide. We want to spread awareness about the dangers of addiction and how it affects our families. We have a commitment to help our community however we can.

Thank you.
