Joe Herzanek to speak at Boulder Men’s Christian FellowshipÂ
The founder of Changing Lives Foundation and author of the book â€œWhy Donâ€™t They JUST QUIT?â€, Joe also spends time counseling inmates and advising their family members and others in the community on effective ways to negotiate the often complex â€œworld of addiction and recovery.â€
Currently the Chaplain at the Boulder County Jail (Boulder, Colorado), Joe has spent over 15 years working in Jails and Prisons as both a Chaplain and Addictions Counselor. Joeâ€™s personal struggles earlier in life were preparation for working with offenders who also have addiction problems.
From age 13 to 29, Joe battled his own drug and alcohol problemâ€”finally receiving treatment. He now has over 30 years of abstinence from substances. Treatment gave him the information and structure needed to begin his journey of recovery.
Joe has three childrenâ€”one who still lives at home. He and his wife Judy live in Colorado, enjoy playing with their two Cairn Terriers Lewis and Clark, camping, and most of allâ€”hiking above treeline in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
