Hello my name is James Donnelly I am the Program Director at A Forever Recovery. I was born in Detroit Michigan, and was raised in the foster care system. I have a bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Baker College. I previously worked helping people with disabilities gain employment and worked for the state of Michigan as an investigator for Children’s Protective Services. I am a veteran United States Army. I have dealt with my own addiction to alcohol. I have been clean and sober now for over 10 years. Through my own struggles with addiction I have gained empathy for those who struggle with addiction. While working towards sobriety is a tough road I look forward to helping those achieve their sobriety and gain control of their life again.
