Brad Compton was raised in Nashville, TN and relocated to South Florida in 2014 to start his own recovery journey. Since then, Brad has found a career working in the mental health field, and now a home here at Family First.
Brad leads our teenagers in many of our experiential activities such as the ropes course, wake-boarding, paddle-boarding, and deep-sea fishing.
Being an active member of his recovery community, Brad speaks at meetings, conventions and takes young men who are newly sober through the 12 steps on a regular basis.
In 2016, Brad began pursuing a degree in Social Work and plans to continue his education in this field. He is also in the process of obtaining his CAC (Certified Addiction Counselor) designation through the Florida Certification Board.
Brad believes that being a big kid at heart while maintaining professional boundaries allows him to connect with our teenagers in a way that is non-threatening, non-judgmental, and supports their learning and growth
