Matt was born and raised in Bellmawr, NJ. As a youth, he enjoyed playing hockey and had high hopes for the future. But he fell into substance abuse and his dreams became nightmares and he lost his drive to succeed. As his addiction took hold of his life, he chose fight back. He entered long-term treatment at Victory Bay and has maintained his sobriety ever since.
He is a true example of what Alumni means to Victory Bay and it is his mission to share the benefits of being part of an amazing community of recovery.
Sobriety has given Matt a full life of love, laughs and pure enjoyment. He is playing hockey again and finds joy through being in service to those less fortunate.
