Savannah Smith was raised primarily in Gonzales, LA and Southlake, TX. She has served in addiction treatment since 2016, after enduring a 12-year battle with addiction and multiple treatment attempts. After experiencing severe consequences, she chose to live, and applied the tools she had been shown many times before. After completing treatment, she accepted the need for sober living in order to unlearn toxic behaviors and relearn how to function in society. She eventually regained custody of her daughter, reconciled with family, and became passionate about showing others that they, too, can recover. As of April 16th, 2016, she was reborn into a life of freedom.
She eventually pursued a career in addiction counseling and is credentialed through the ADRA as a Registered Addiction Counselor at The Grove Recovery Center. She recently began attending college at BRCC, in pursuit of a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology to further expand her effectiveness in counseling practices.
Apart from work and commitment to Alcoholics Anonymous, Savannah spends the majority of her free time making memories with her 7-year old daughter, as well as nieces and nephews. She also enjoys skydiving, reading, church, vacations with family, and laughing with friends.
