DEREK STONE is a recovered alcoholic, life coach, and internationally-sought 12 step speaker who started is own journey of recovery and personal development by overcoming three common obstacles to recovery:
GETTING SOBER YOUNG
Derek got sober at the age of 20, and he is part of the "never had a legal drink" club
BEING "FORCED" INTO SOBRIETY
Derek did not initiate a process of recovery himself, it was initiated for him by a court intervention, and he is part of the "nudge from the judge" club.
GETTING SOBER ON THE FIRST TRY
Derek had never attended a 12 step group prior to his stay in treatment and has been sober since his first stay in treatment, making him part of the "one hit wonder" club.
