The first time Ben Randolph was arrested, officers were surprised because his family had strong roots in the Portland community. A Benson graduate and twice deployed with the Navy to the Persian Gulf, Randolph worked construction to in name only. His main job was addiction.
"By the time I got sober, I lost my house to foreclosure making me homeless, I was unemployed, and my two sons were in protective custody," Randolph said.
He worked hard to get his life back by starting school at MHCC, eventually earning a master's degree, regaining his credit and staying sober; more importantly, Randolph "got my mental, emotional and spiritual life back."
Today, Randolph and his wife Jen, also a recovering addict, help others through Oregon Trail Recovery and Pacific Crest Trail Detox where they fully understand the difficulty of reaching sobriety. With a family-like environment, clients get the help they need for long-term recovery and continuum of care from drugs and alcohol. They offer an inpatient home setting for detoxification with 24/7 nursing and tech coverage in order to support someone throughout the detoxification process.
"I became somebody who could look themselves in the mirror and be happy with who they saw," Randolph said.
