Meet the Co-Founders of Simple Path Recovery: Justin Dunbar and Samantha Van Sant

Written on: 12/19/2016

Justin Dunbar and Samantha Van Sant moved to Southern Florida with a vision; to better their lives and the lives of others. Samantha moved to South Florida from New Jersey at the age of 21 years old to find a new way of life. After her own struggles with substance abuse, she was desperate to change. Samantha began in the field of substance abuse in 2008, where she was able to follow her desire to help others where she once was. Justin originally began in the recovery field due to his own struggles with addition for over 15 years. After recovery, Justin decided he wanted to give back and expresses that passion by helping others in the substance abuse industry. Through rehabilitation and support, Justin and Samantha found a way out. They are passionate about giving back to others and showing people that there is hope.

Justin and Samantha met in 2010 while working in the substance abuse industry and shared a similar interest of recovery and helping others. Together they decided to open Simple Path Recovery to aid in the recovery of others burden with addiction in May 2015. Justin and Samantha know first-hand the experience of going through rehabilitation and living in recovery. Today, they apply their experience and knowledge at Simple Path Recovery.
