About Jay Shifman

Jay Shifman is an open book. Advocate, storyteller, coach, and consultant, Jay’s substance misuse story is familiar to over 19 million Americans who also struggle with addiction. Now in long-term recovery, it is Jay’s mission to change the way the world treats addiction, substance misuse, mental health, and drug use.

Jay approaches substance misuse from a 360-degree perspective because of both his personal experience and education. Recovery shouldn’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. Jay strongly believes people deserve to have access to mental health resources, so they can have more fulfilled lives and a connection to their community. Eleven years in recovery, Jay lives with his wife, Lauren, and their dog, Nell, in Philadelphia.
