Travis Donaldson, PRSS

Younger Group Peer Counselor

Travis serves as one of the youth-focused peer counselors here at Rise Recovery. He is eager to show the younger crowd that it is possible to live a substance-free life. He himself started using at a very young age and found his way here around the age of 17. If it were not for the love and patience of the other peer counselors who served him, he might not have given this way of life a chance. Rise Recovery’s Family Group also helped his mother come to terms with her child’s substance use and how to help her son in a non-enabling way.

Today, Travis feels very strongly about giving his time and being of service to the place that helped him get his life back. This life includes hanging with his pup, reading, dabbling in writing, enjoying traveling and all kinds of music. There is such love in his heart for the youth and being that example of everything at a young age.
