Who We are

We Conquer Addiction Together

The District Recovery Community is a group of individuals who have come together as a distinct unit to conquer a common characteristic: addiction. We strive to work together as a community to instill experience, strength and hope within one another so that we may move forward positively in our lives, learning to adapt to a life of sobriety—one day at a time.

The spirit of fellowship and the bonds formed within this community of peers provides strength, focus and support. The positive energy is harnessed in constructive ways so that every resident feels empowered and empowers others along their journey of recovery.

A Story Just Like Yours

Recovery Can Change a Life. We Know. It Changed Our Lives.

The District was founded by two young men who were once shackled by the seemingly hopeless chains of addiction. These men developed a passion for helping young men break the chins of addiction – Step by step, day by day, one day at a time.

Jack Petti

Jack Petti

Owner/Founder

Jack Petti comes from a unique background, having struggled with addiction from the very early age of 12 years old. Addiction grabbed hold of Jack early on as he discovered that drugs and alcohol provided an escape for him, enabling him to numb negative feelings or emotions. With a tough upbringing in a family of ten siblings and a lack of family stability, Jack grew up getting into quite a bit of trouble as his addiction rapidly progressed.

Jack struggled with substance abuse while cycling in and out of boarding schools, wilderness programs and treatment centers for seven years before reaching bottom. At the age of 19, after years of living in self will, demonstrating extremely destructive behavior and shutting out everyone from his life, Jack came to the realization that he could no longer continue living the way he had been. He entered himself in a long-term treatment program in California with hopes of developing a better manner of living. Jack spent more than a year going through all levels of treatment programming and established a solid foundation for recovery.

He has used his story to help individuals struggling with the same problems he once struggled with. Jack now works in recovery, taking advantage of this platform to share his story, experience, strength and hope with young adults fighting to break free of the same seemingly hopeless state of despair he once knew all too well.
