Mr. William Campbell is the founder of New Journeys in Recovery (NJIR) and a life long resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mr. Campbell and NJIR have been servicing the treatment needs of persons struggling with an addiction to alcohol and other drugs in the North Central Philadelphia area for the last 17 years. His knowledge of recovery and the conviction to give excellent service and assistance to the "at risk" community have taken him on an incredible journey. The first part of Mr. Campbell’s journey began in 1968 when he opened a Methadone Clinic in North Philadelphia. Mr. Campbell participates in the Lifers program at Graterford prison and generally does not miss an opportunity to go back to his roots to encourage those who are still struggling with addictions. At present, NJIR operates programs at two locations. Mr. Campbell's vision is to open a new and modern facility that will afford an array of holistic services to NJIR clients.
