Today’s conversation is with a person in long-term recovery and long time participant in recovery advocacy, Bobby Coffey. Bobby’s personal recovery journey began over 20 years ago and he has been involved in advocacy for people in or seeking recovery for 15 years. As a practical example of the “Power of One”, Mr. Coffey has testified before the District of Columbia’s City Council and has also advocated in front of the Department of Health and Human Services. He is a founding member of DC Recovery Community Alliance and a board member of Faces and Voices of Recovery. Bobby’s important work was featured in the interviews and out-takes of the recent documentary, The Anonymous people. His advocacy work has also translated to a cutting edge treatment facility in Washington, DC called, Aquila Recovery.
