The idea for the business initially started with the desire to make natural products with healing qualities. And to only give these products to their family, friends, and clients.
It then grew as a direct result of the opioid addiction crises in Portsmouth, both Dale and Renee’s hometown. While working with people in recovery, they realized that addiction is just one step on the way to full recovery. Employment and a steady income were the next steps. And so they decided to expand their product production and hire on more staff. One of their first employees was a young man who’d overcome addiction but faced an uncertain future.
They’re proud to say that two years on, he now owns a car, an apartment, and now faces a bright future. The business continues to grow and provide employment in Portsmouth. All this came from applying an ethic of hard work within their team, which Dale attributes to principles he learned during his military service.
