Episode 28:Jeremy French

Updated: Nov 2, 2018

We welcome Jeremy French, Director of Making Whole to the podcast. Jeremy is clean and sober since 1995. He is a husband, father of 2, craftsman, and ball player. He lives by an idea best expressed by Thoreau- "Be true to your work, your word, and your friends"

Making Whole is an addiction recovery process built into the framework of a traditional apprenticeship program. Men are taught the creative process– a method of problem-solving that is practical, relatable, tangible, scientific, and spiritual. Making Whole is built on a simple premise: the mentor/student relationship overpowers the ego barriers of addiction. Once these barriers are broken, the work of building studio-quality furniture provides a perfect metaphor for sustainable recovery and a successful life. In short, Making Whole embodies the two things that are indispensable for someone new to recovery: intimacy and direction.
