Travis Donaldson

PDAP Younger Group Peer Counselor

Travis serves as one the youth 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 very young and found his way to PDAP around the age of 17. If it was not for the love and patience of the other peer counselors before him he might not have given this way of life a chance at 20 years old. The 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 he 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.
