My name is Tate Gunning, the creator of Inhouse Treatment. My vision is to share the peace, love, and harmony I’ve found in recovery.
My childhood was absolutely normal, with good report cards, and athletic success; in our home there was love. I don’t know exactly why I turned to drugs.
High School accomplishments lead to a baseball scholarship at Arizona State University. After serving a church mission, I played a year of college football. All things seemed in order, but I quickly began to loose sight of life.
For over 10 years I was on the streets, in and out jail, and ruining family relationships. I tried treatment, detox, and medication, but I was an IV drug user and couldn’t stop. Finally, one blessed night I overdosed and almost died; this was the night my life changed.
With the humility of overdose, and the help of family, I was willing to try something different and checked into long term treatment at the John Volken Academy, and thus began the process of recovery.
What I didn’t realize is the path of sobriety would turn into the life I'd always dreamed of, and this vision can be accomplished by any.My sobriety date is December 7, 2013 – I have light to share. May we work together to find strength, love, and hope, and help each other in recovery.
May your light shine!
For over 10 years,
I was in and out of jail, homeless, and jobless. I acquired a criminal record with multiple felonies, and would lie, cheat, steal. How do these things happen to a straight A student, and a serious athlete?
Although, I don’t have all the answers,
I do know that chances for recovery drastically improve when following a plan.
Finally, after 10 years of addiction,
1 year and a half in jail, sleeping on the streets, several treatment centers, holistic treatment, medications, outpatient, and 3 serious overdoses, I decided to get help.
