Tyler Lorenz

Founder and Executive Director

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Tyler has had a lifetime of experience with mental health and addiction issues.  After 29 years of active addiction, Tyler transformed his life and began to follow his true purpose which is to support those individuals still struggling with addiction.  Within the first year of recovery, Tyler returned to school and received a diploma in Addiction and Community Service Worker.  With the support of his mentor and an incredible community, Tyler founded Residents in Recovery which has supported hundreds of individuals with their recovery journey.  Residents in Recovery is roughly modeled after his own journey to recovery.  Developing a program that aims to reduce or eliminate barriers has been the goal from the start.  Today, Tyler supports his community through participation on many committees and volunteer positions.  Filling service gaps and bringing awareness to mental health and addiction issues will work to break the stigma that is still so prevalent in our society today.
