Collection: TGIM Peer Support

"I found a path that led to sobriety for me. So, I began to help my peers in Texas ReEntry create their own paths too. Before I realized it, I'd created a business model packed with wellness and recovery capitol that empowers men, women and YAR's who want to live a full, rich and meaningful life ...do just that.

It's simply amazing to watch. I used to wonder why I had to suffer so much during my active addiction. Now I know." -Eric

Eric was born and raised in Aubrey, Arkansas, and is a Gulf War veteran. After returning from Iraq, Eric settled down in Kansas City and started a family of his own.

Growing up, Eric was introduced to marijuana at an early age. He says, "My friends smoked it because it was fun to them, I smoked it to escape. For the first time, I had something to help me get through the things that happened to me." At 16-years-old, Eric tried crack cocaine and his life would never be the same.

Addiction seemed to follow Eric everywhere he went after returning from Iraq. He spent the next 26 years, doing life on an installment plan in jails and institutions. On October 5, 2005, Eric found it no longer necessary to smoke crack cocaine. In 2010, he founded TGIM Digital Publishing and launched its premier program: Writing for the Soul Workshop™.

Youth and young adults accessed the program in Africa, Asia, Australia and throughout the US until Eric retired the program on December 31, 2020. While offering the program, Eric was able to give away just over $2.8 million in books, food, workshops, cash, and school supplies.

Eric completed Peer Recovery Support Specialist Core Training in the Texas model in 2016. On March 8, 2019, Eric was one of the first 50 peers to complete the PRSS Core Training in the Arkansas model. Eric's work experience includes over 6,000 hours of supervised clinical training as a certified Quality Behavioral Health Provider, and in substance abuse as a registered CIT with the Arkansas Substance Abuse Certification Board.
