Story Of Co-Founder Wade Muhlhauser
Wade was an addict and alcoholic. A great student and baseball player, his addiction started small but quickly grew. His behavior changed, and his work and relationships suffered.
Living in Minnesota, Wade would spend time looking up treatment centers before he even knew he needed help. Finding treatment centers was hard, even on the internet. Information was jumbled, and there wasn’t a central location to find unbiased opinions.
There were also a lot of scams as Wade looked into rehab – patient brokers who earn their living based on what insurance pays out, pay-for-play centers who artificially inflate their reviews and position in search results. Trying to get help opened Wade’s eyes to how horrible the process of finding help can be.
Wade eventually lost everything and became homeless due to his dependence on alcohol and opiates. He found help in Arizona, and his goal is now to help others find the right treatment center for them – not the most expensive, not the one who buys the best reviews – the right treatment for your specific needs.
“Wade has always been and always will be a ray of light on even the darkest of days. If anyone has enough love and motivation to help any and all seeking help it’s him!”
“The support that has been provided to be from Plugged in Recovery has been incredible!! Thank you with all of my heart and keep up the great work!”
