Peter grew up in San Diego. He learned early the cost of addiction as his father and two of his siblings died from alcohol and drug overdoses. Getting sober in his thirties, he lived in the rooms of AA and NA. The continuing support of this sober community and the invaluable connections made are the cornerstones of his recovery. The 12 step principles are incorporated in his life and are the guiding principles of Fairview. To help others grow from despair and demoralization to hope and purpose has become his passion and mission.
