Donald McDonald

McDonald is part of “The Hope Squad” – a new approach that police in Raleigh, North Carolina are using to help survivors of drug overdose. Days after reviving someone, a police officer and two recovery experts – which often include McDonald – visit the survivor to provide support, empower recovery, and share information on overdose prevention. McDonald knows firsthand how recovery can change a life. After struggling with addictions since his youth, McDonald found long-term recovery in 2004, when his four children were little. Sobriety inspired a desire to help others recover, and a master’s degree in social work. Today McDonald is a leader in North Carolina’s recovery movement, and trains recovery coaches statewide. He serves as Director of Advocacy and Education for the nonprofit Recovery Communities of North Carolina, promoting addiction recovery, wellness and citizenship. “My proudest moments are when my wife and children tell me that they are proud of me,” McDonald says. “If I am a good man through their eyes, that is all that matters.”
