Timothy Holzer – Associate Director Caroline County Recovery Program
Timothy was born and raised in New Jersey and had struggled with addiction since childhood. In using drugs and alcohol at an early age, he graduated to much more dangerous substances at age 16. After multiple programs, rehabs, and arrests, Timothy knew he needed to try something different. In December of 2014, Timothy moved from New York to Caroline County, VA to be with his family and enter recovery again. Changing his geographical location did not solve his Substance Use Disorder. On October 12th, 2015, he entered the Caroline County Recovery Community Program, which is managed by McShin. When he enrolled, he began to dedicate all his free time to volunteer for the organization. In May of 2016, he was hired as a Peer Leader to help other participants in the program. He has since been promoted to Associate Director of the Caroline County Recovery Community Program. Timothy has been in recovery since April 9th, 2015, and he maintains his recovery by working a 12-step program.
