Leo Allison

Founder/Recovery Coach

Hi, I’m Leo. Having gone to hell and back (an epic understatement), 3 inpatient programs (none of which ‘worked’), multiple DUI’s, numerous hospital visits, near financial collapse, a divorce and (most importantly) having hurt deeply those I love the most, I tapped out and became truly ready. FINALLY, after years of putting myself through the meat grinder (what we all must go through to be truly ‘ready’), I wanted recovery within every fiber of my being…yet I was scared sh*tless that I may not be able to break free no matter what I did.

Never in a million years did I ever imagine I’d be ‘that guy’, and no words can describe the desperation, fear and soul-shaking terror.  But, this is the best thing that can happen, it signals the beginning of the end! Nothing, and I mean nothing happens before brutal, uncompromising self-honesty and a willingness ‘to go to any lengths’ to recover. When I arrived at this point, the Universe did its thing and started helping me because I started helping myself. The right people with the right message began showing up at the right time. I then started doing ‘the next right thing’ whatever that was. Here I am over 6 years recovered: the wonder, fulfillment, peace and outright FUN (which I never dreamed I’d have again) continues to defy description. As oddly as it sounds, I wouldn’t trade what I went through for anything…as it has led me to depth of Life and experience of Being that I’ve come to realize couldn’t have arisen in any other way, for me at least. Now, what I do is simply share my experience in hopes of inspiring others who are truly ready for change, and play a part in creating a new opportunity at Life for those who are willing to do the hard work of recovery. If I can do it, so can you. The message I bring is one of hope and transformation, and within a very unique program.

Oh yeah…in my former life I went to a well-known Omaha high school, graduated from UNL and got an MBA from a pretty reputable University in Chicago. Worked for an international company for a couple years before settling into a ‘successful’ (whatever that means) career in the local business community. Have the best family and friends in the galaxy, and above all, two amazing kids (I still lie a lot). Fantastic failures and humbling successes all along the way, which continue to this day.

Jeremy Miller

You may remember Jeremy as Ben Seaver from the hit show Growing Pains (80’s’s and early 90’s). After struggling for about 15 years with alcohol, and trying every imaginable treatment program to get sober, his mom just happens to stumble on the BioCorRx program. Highly skeptical, but desperate, Jeremy had the implant and went through the entire recovery program. That was back in 2011, and he has been sober, HAPPILY sober, ever since.

Having been given the “Gift of Recovery” Jeremy is now an advocate and national spokesman for our program. More importantly though, as he will tell you, is his commitment to helping those who are serious about recovery. As a Peer Recovery Support Specialist for IGotSober Recovery Center, Jeremy works with a number of our clients throughout their 12-month program.

Justin Druskis

Director of Medical and Business Outreach

Justin is a native of Omaha Nebraska, and like most, a devoted Husker fan. He graduated from Hawaii Pacific University, earning both a Bachelors and Master’s Degree in Business Administration. While had the pleasure of working as a scuba diving instructor working with thousands of people from around the globe. In his time in Hawaii he became keenly aware of the devastation addiction was causing all around him and turned his interest toward learning more about the needs of those struggling with addiction from alcohol and drugs.

Coming back to Omaha he saw the need is no different here, as several people close to him had become deeply affected and were in dire need of help. This became a calling of sorts for Justin, and he decided he could make a difference by getting involved on a first-hand basis. Early in 2017 Justin became the Director of Medical and Business Outreach, actively working in the Omaha professional community to expand the awareness of the Igotsober Recovery Program, and how it can be the opportunity of a lifetime for those truly ready and willing to end the madness of addiction.
