Lukas is our CEO at Jericho Recovery Centre, and ensures that our facility and care are second to none.

Lukas also does life coaching, helping people move beyond the life of addiction so they can start dreaming again and see a positive future for themselves. Lukas's heart is to show people the incredible value they carry as individuals, as well as for them to develop their identity, to come to know who they truly are. He firmly believes that when people know who they are, and when they value and love themselves they, by the nature of things, will be productive in their decision making and move forward in their lives.
