Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with April Garfoli, founder of Recovery Concepts & Concepts LLC., located in Hermitage, PA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Recovery Concepts & Consulting LLC is dedicated to providing an alternative to traditional treatment interventions & 12-step methods for treating addiction. We specialize in high-profile cases & worst-case scenarios for anyone who’s been impacted by addiction, whether it be directly or by proxy.

Tell us about yourself

After 20 years of working in various rehabs and treatment facilities, seeing the same clients go in and out of these facilities like a revolving, it became clear that the way we treat addiction isn’t working. The current relapse rate is upwards of 80%. Not only is this unacceptable, but it’s completely obvious that the current treatment system isn’t working. It’s flat-out failing.

I am so proud and excited to offer men & women an exciting, fresh alternative to the outdated current modalities that provides them with the opportunity to empower themselves and take back control over their lives.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Disrupting and changing the way society views, defines, & treats addiction.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing about being a business owner is also the best thing about being a business owner. At the end of the day, it’s all on you!!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Think Big!!
  2. Disrupt the System/Status Quo.
  3. Repeat -Be Consistent.
