Substance Abuse

Jason spent over a decade in the trenches of substance abuse, particularly alcohol and opioid use. Coming from a family with a history of alcoholism, he has been witness to the effects the disease has on the families as well. His story of overcoming massive adversity to living a life full of service is authentic, raw, and motivating for all. Audiences are left captivated by his passion for hope behind such difficult topics, leaving them inspired and wanting more. As a Certified Recovery Coach Hyland has a well-rounded understanding to tackling this country's greatest epidemic. Most who struggle with substance abuse use their addiction to mask the anguish and numb the pain that comes from a mental health challenge.

Mental Health

Depression can leave you feeling continuously burdened and can squash the joys of life you once experienced and substance use helps numb this feeling. Depression is one of the many mental health challenges Jason has experienced either firsthand or through a loved one during his 35+ years of life. Studies show that roughly 90% of individuals who die by suicide experience a mental health challenge, and depression sits alone atop that list. 

A Certified Peer Specialist, Hyland has not only "been there" but is also trained to have these difficult mostly avoided conversations that surround mental health. The Peer Movement is leading the charge of helping raise mental health awareness and in ending the stigma that comes with it.


Anyone who has ever faced an addiction, depression, or any number of mental health challenges will be the first to tell you they had little to no self-esteem, which is one's emotional evaluation of their own worth aka their self-worth. Jason recognized early on in his recovery the vital impact rebuilding his confidence had on any chance of living a happy fulfilling life. In order to ever love another person, we must first love ourselves, and we learn to do so by building up our self-esteem. Self-care is an essential part to increasing our quality life and building confidence within ourselves. This is a forever process as we will always have the ability to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually.
