YARDLEY, Pa., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberation Way is deeply saddened by the passing of one of its founders, Dallas Fetterman, who lost his fight with the disease of addiction on Wednesday. His family, friends, and employees will continue to carry on his mission to treat those still struggling.
"Dallas was more than a founder, he was a friend who was dearly loved by everyone he touched," said Liberation Way's Chief Operating Officer, Jason Gerner, MS, LCADC, CCS. "Dallas forged the path for so many people to get help from their addiction. He is responsible for not only saving many lives but for also changing them, and making them become happy, healthy, and productive members of society. Dallas's passion was to help those who needed it most, and opening up a treatment center was his dream come true."
Fetterman believed that you were not defined by your substance abuse and took a personal investment in everyone he met. The loss of such a passionate warrior in the fight to end addiction proves just how powerful this disease is regardless of your intentions. There is an unfortunate stigma and also a high standard attached to professionals working in the field of addiction and in this case, too often there is a psychological price for entrepreneurship.
"I am a better person, father, and son for knowing Dallas, and there are so many others who can say the same," said Gerner. "Dallas will be missed, but I know that he would be saying to us to 'Man up, get back to work and continue the journey.'"
Gerner added that although Fetterman's light has gone out, his legacy will live on through the work of Liberation Way. The recovery community mourns the loss of Fetterman, one of their most fervent warriors. Liberation Way will continue to fulfill Fetterman's vision of providing help to the sick and the suffering so that his death will not have been in vain.
